Movie Reviews

Fantastic comedy-adventure
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 05/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brooke Shields is more beautiful than ever in BRENDA STARR, a cute comedy-adventure-mystery based on the buxom comic-strip character.As the journalist Brenda Starr, Shields has a ball. In each scene, she is priceless, and ravishing in Bob Mackie's cavalcade of wonderful costumes.Diana Scarwid also is wonderful, as Brenda's arch-rival Libby Lips. Also of note are June Gable, Jeffrey Tambor, Tony Peck and Charles Durning.Timothy Dalton, as Brenda's suave love-interest Basil St John, has charisma and charm to spare. The adventure builds as Brenda travels deep into the Amazon to retrieve a miracle formula that could save or destroy the world.BRENDA STARR was mauled by critics and audiences alike when first released. In fact the film was delayed and kept on the shelf for 7 years before being officially released. A decade later, BRENDA STARR has been re-discovered by new and old audiences alike as an enjoyable farce that doesn't need to be taken seriously.Delightful viewing."
Absurd but delightful cmic fantasy
L O'connor | richmond, surrey United Kingdom | 06/03/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Brook Shields plays newspaper reporter Brenda Starr, the glamorous heroine of a strip cartoon drawn by a slightly wet but amiable artist, who somehow manages to draw himself into the strip and finds himself sharing her adventures as they try to find a missing professor who has developed a secret formula to replace petrol and who is also being pursued by various baddies (well, something like that anyway). The artist naturally has a crush on the glamorous Brenda, but romantic compications occur when gorgeous Brazilian aristocrat Basil St. John (Timothy Dalton in tight black trousers and an eyepatch,oh crikey, I'm drooling again)turns up, he's also after the formula, I think. Look, I've watched this film three times now and I still don't really understand the plot, but who cares. It's a lot of fun anyway, and with Brook Shields in tight skirts and Timothy Dalton in tight trousers it has something to please everyone. True, there is a rather long bit in the middle of the film where Dalton isn't around, but you can't have everything, and the rest of the time, he's there, and absolutely divine. Don't worry about the baffling plot and crazy characters, just enjoy it."
Funny movie
L O'connor | 02/19/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, I admit, I bought this movie because Timothy Dalton stars in it. And it does not disappoint. It is a movie with lots of humour and not to be taken too seriously. Just sit back and enyoy the humour. It has no pretensions of deep human emotions or of world philosophy and that is what makes it so enjoyable."
Great Film for Pure Fun
David Saxe | State College, PA USA | 02/08/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bad reviews cannot hold down a deliciously fun movie and a super campy script. Brenda Starr is a wonderful little film that is silly for sure, but funny. Brooke Shields never looked better and kids will love the action and the witty script. No it's not some arty-farty Hollywood nosh-nosh thing, sorry on that count. What it is is just an old fashioned funny movie worth seeing. Rent it, buy it, see it; whatever. . . just sit back and enjoy."
