This was a relly bad movie. Had some big name stars, but if it was funny once it has not held up well since the 60s.
This is a great classic with very funny sketches from the not so famous at the time. I will remember for a lifetime the large opera singer with the horned helment leading the charge. A fine comedito.
This is a prime example of the irreverent comedy of the sixties era. The definitive Peter Sellers, at his best, Peter O'Toole and Ursula Andress at their most beautiful, and a strange little guy, Woody Allen, at his dumbest! To quote from Robert Horton on Amazon "An appealing, free-floating lunacy fuels What's New Pussycat?, and there's enough of it bubbling around to carry the movie past its many defects. The cast is like a collection of terribly attractive people stumbling over each other at a disorganized cocktail party--they aren't always witty, and some of them are drunk, but there's enough going on to keep you distracted.
Peter O'Toole plays a swinging London womanizer seeking help for his addiction, who makes the mistake of consulting one Dr. Fritz Fassbender (Peter Sellers), a demented psychoanalyst and a sex-starved friend, Woody Allen, who made his movie debut here and wrote the script. It is like "Blazing Saddles", in that the more times you view it, the funnier it gets!
Sellars puts the Z in zany! I remember watching this with my dad. We laughed til we cried.
I find that the humor translates very well even after all these years. The great comedies always hold up well. If you haven't seen this one, give it a shot.
Prompted by a recent gift of the What's New, Pussycat soundtrack, I felt obligated to actually see the movie.
Definitely entertaining; made funnier if you sip a martini before or during. So relax, let yourself go for a few hours, and bask in the tomfoolishness. The movie starts out as an amusing sex frolic and climaxes to slapsticky nonsense.
And of course, if you're into mid-60's mod style, you'll get an eyeful here.
What's interesting is what was considered to be sexy in the mid-60's....Peter O'Toole's yellow teeth? Oh, c'mon on now!
