Movie Reviews

MGM disappoints again
E. Agustin | California, USA | 06/17/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"After a long wait for the release of this classic 60s comedy, MGM has tossed the film on its forgettable pile. For what was an extremely successful adult comedy at the time; a return for Peter Sellers after his near fatal heartattacks; the debut of Woody Allen, MGM has treated this film like the second half of a Chuck Norris double-bill. The DVD release is abysmal. It is compressed, it is not in the format of its theatrical release, the colors are washed out in MGM's usual, generic, neo-colorization process. The print is cut. Sequences have been trimmed because they are no longer politically correct. This is especially noticeable in the over-the-top Keystone Kops finale of the film. As an older viewer who saw this film in the theatre in 1965 (and many times thereafter), scenes from the original release are missing on this DVD. Although not outstanding and in questionable taste, the fact that they are missing is a disappointment. It is not a complete print of the original release. The sound mix is poor and that's being polite. How one would wish someone who is still alive and cares would give this film the kind of treatment that "Jaws" will get. I hate MGM. They used to be a studio of quality and now they are worse than Ted Turner in his colorization days."
Very funny 1960's movie poking fun at sex & psychotherapy!

""What's New Pussycat" was Woody Allen's first major film release. Filmed in the city of love, Paris, the story centers around the very complicated love life of the character Michael James (Peter O'Toole), who is trying to stop seeing other women so that he can focus on the one woman he really loves, Carol (Romy Schneider). To help him overcome his sexual addictions, he seeks professional help from the pschotherapist Dr. Fritz Fassbender (Peter Sellers). Unfortuneately for Michael, Dr. Fassbander is in greater need of psychotherapy since his sexual addictions are even more complicated. In the opening scene of the movie, Dr. Fassbender and his wife Anna (Eddra Gale) are fighting about one of his love affairs that she has discovered. She asks him, "Is she prettier than me?" He responds, "Is she prettier than you? I am prettier than you!".Can Dr. Fassbender help Michael overcome his addiction to love affairs to gain Carol's trust? You will probably enjoy discovering this answer by watching this very funny movie."

"Mike Myers must have been thinking of this film to inspire the Saturday Night Live sketch of my title and 'Austin Powers' - between the plot of an inveterate womanizer struggling to change his ways and Peter Sellers' character who may well be Austin's crazed Austrian uncle. Every frame of this film looks like a full-page color Playboy cartoon - set in posh bachelor pads, grimy artist's garrets, smoky strip clubs, or the corridors of a no-tell-rendezvous hotel...Not a brilliant piece of film; it sets up and discards an intriguing storyline where Peter O'Toole's friend Woody Allen is attracted to O'Toole's fiancee Romy Schneider, and, at a loss to how to end the film, everyone gets on go-karts and rides around. Much of the humor is (and I *hate* the term) politically incorrect by current standards, so beware.For all that, I enjoy it immensely. O'Toole plays his role in a totally sympathetic Hugh Grant-sort of way, Sellers is a looney, Burt Bacharach's score is cheerfully deranged, and the women, dear God, they are gorgeous...I found myself attracted to Paula Prentiss's flaky exotic dancer/poet...I may need a few sessions with Dr. Fassbender myself."

"The sound quality on the DVD was atrocious. Too bad, given the great Burt Bacharach score."
