Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Made in Paris is a horribly dated comedy that will appeal mostly to fans of Ann-Margret, incredible hairstyles and haute couture fashions filtered through a Hollywood lens. And to be fair, if one takes Paris simply on those terms and is ready to just laugh at it, the film can make for a very entertaining evening. However, one must be enormously willing to suspend one's desire for anything resembling freshness or believability in the screenplay and must be naturally inclined to laugh rather than wince at treacherously bad dialogue. The writer is the villain here, although it must be said that Boris Sagal's ho-hum direction certainly doesn't help make it any easier going. Fortunately, Paris does have Ann-Margret at the height of her stunning, alluring, sex-kittenish beauty. She can't really do anything with the part, which one minute is all hands-off virginity and then the next is giving loud and clear "come on" signals. Had the writers actually done something with the idea of a confused good girl/bad girl, the actress might have then had something interesting to play. Still, Ann-Margret tosses her mile-high hair with great abandon, wiggles and struts through a couple of dances that are simply too period to be believed, and uses her star power to keep one's attention. She gets no help whatsoever from a dull Chad Everett, and Louis Jourdan and Richard Crenna are not much better, but Edie Adams picks up the slack whenever she appears. There's also Helen Rose's wonderful-yet-awful faux-Parisian designs. None of the assets make Made in Paris anywhere near a good movie -- but, for the right audience, they make it a great deal of fun.
