He is unable to hold a job or a girl and he suffers from a suicide complex. A failure in whatever he tries, he is unable to throw himself off a bridge or under a truck, and he can’t even hang himself properly. He nearly gets knifed by co-stars Peter Falk and Elaine May when they separately try harakiri over their unhappy marriage. He is kidnapped and wrapped in a burlap bag, and he is “attacked” by a dog. He is slugged in the stomach by Elaine and over the head by Nina Wayne who, at the film’s end, rescues him from drowning. “Luv”, as a result of Lemmon’s tribulations, is one of the year’s top comedies.
