    Victorious! Victor/Victoria.

    I have watched this movie many times, and I see something I may have missed the last time. It is a spirit lifting, laugh out loud movie. Good cast, script, plot, costumes, etc. As you can tell I love this movie. Thanks!

    An absolute delight from beginning to end, Blake Edwards at his finest with a stellar cast.

    Set in 1920's Paris, Victor/Victoria does what most musical comedies never do--it delivers in both categories. The story is that of a struggling female vocalist who pretends to be a male transvgestite to become the sensation of the gay music scene. Great songs give Julie Andrews ample opportunity to demonstrate her tremendous vocal gifts, which is reason enough to see this movie. The script is smart, funny, and is full of insight into the relationships between men and women. V/V came out at about the same time as Tootsie. While the latter movie received much more acclaim and attention, V/V goes deeper and makes its points much more artfully. Robert Preston gives a wonderful, nuanced performance; James Garner is in top form; and Alex Karras gets the movie's best one-liner. Lesley Ann Warren is a sensation, and her musical number is a knock-out. Blake Edwards is at his very best, with favorite composer Henry Mancini delivering a sumptuous score. This movie delivers on all levels.

    A Brilliant Most Underated Movie!

    This 1982 movie first received fairly low-key reviews, indeed some were damning! Later reviewers began to change their minds and quite rightly so. Not enough superlatives are available to describe Victor Victoria. As near 'Perfect' as a movie can be, hilarious, brilliantly acted, beautifully directed with stunning choreography by the genius Paddy Stone - breathtaking - in the various numbers. To cap it all, the Great Robert Preston reigns supreme, wow what an actor and with James Garner proving to be a smashing light comic performer and Julie Andrews arguably producing her very best performance ever, you have the perfect combination. No movie collection would be complete without this sensational movie. A film that can be viewed over and over again and should you have missed out and not seen it? Go get it NOW!

    An awesome unknown movie!

    I only came across this film when researching my favorite actress/singer/etc Julie Andrews. This is an absolutely hilarious movie with wonderful musical numbers to complement it! Just a fun/ny movie! I highly recommend it to all!

    Hilarious, Romantic,Entertaining!

    The films theme are always the kind of themes that attracts me. Plus the fact that Julie Andrews is on it. I love her. She has a golden voice. I am intriugued by woman's exploration of her own sexuality. Regardless of her motives. It is the absurdities of human ideas that has been put to action. Turns out well and ends well. Love it!
