Movie Reviews

Entertaining wacky comedy
06/17/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Plucking the Daisy is a zany comedy in black and white.The cast of characters do a fine job. Bardot here looks so very young.This lady always seems to be a joy to watch especially in lighter fare such as this movie. While maybe not one of her sexier performances it is still one of her better overall performances. Bardot plays the role of a 'good girl' and a rather atypical shy and modest one. She gets into trouble by her own doing and enters an amateur striptease contest to win some much needed cash to bail herself out of her predictament. While other contestants take it all off during the competition, Bardot bares very little at all but still manages to win the contest (first phase).Other versions of this movie are called Madamoselle Striptease and Please Mr. Balzac. Plucking the Daisy is the film you want to see since it has been digitally restored and is in excellent condition.While I can't put Plucking the Daisy high on my list of favorite Bardot movies it is nonetheless an eminently watchable and entertaining flick. Those who enjoy wacky type comedies should really enjoy this one."
Enjoyable Fun!

"The story line of this film is an enjoyable vehicle which displays the timeless beauty of Brigitte Bardot. This VHS version is marred, however, by the terrible audio and video quality. 5 Stars for Bardot + 0 Stars for the quality of the tape = 2 Stars. If you are a big fan of Bardot (such as myself) you may want to pick to this up to add to your collection, otherwise buy something else."
