Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Andrea LeVasseur
This musical spoof of the roaring '20s has gone overlooked, but when it was released in 1967, it was a box-office hit and earned seven Academy award nominations. The cast is excellent, featuring the flamboyant theatrics of Carol Channing, the good-natured dance numbers of Mary Tyler Moore, and Julie Andrews in an infrequent occasion where she brings her incredible talents to a fluffy, non-serious film. Overblown and overlong, the narrative is just an excuse to fill time in between the production numbers. It also contains some of the era's more negative Asian stereotypes (featuring a young Pat Morita as "Oriental #2") along with a bizarrely lighthearted white-slavery story line. For fans of the genre, however, Thoroughly Modern Millie is an effective musical with ridiculous plot twists, a romantic ending, and a score from Andre Previn and Elmer Bernstein. Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen provide some memorable songs, including "I'm Sitting on Top of the World," "Jazz Baby," and the title tune. The main reason to see Thoroughly Modern Millie is for the outrageous costumes and over-the-top theatrics, if you can tolerate the farcical story line.

    Julie Shines Again!

    Everything here is still thoroughly modern...a musical that is still funny and fresh. 'Our Julie' is in her prime here, as a very sincere and funny flapper. The film paints an irresistable picture of the Roaring 20's, with a witty script and a fine cast. Essential viewing for musical buffs.

    Millie Is Marvelous!

    A lot of fun! One of my favorite movies. Julie Andrews is wonderful as always (my favorite actress ever). Mary Tyler Moore is delightful and is able to showcase not only her beauty and comedic talent but we we get to see her dance. Beatrice Lillie is fun as the sinister Mrs. Meers (''sad to be all alone in the world''). Carol Channing is full of energy and spunk as Muzzy. Love all the guys - James Fox and John Gavin. Pat Morita and Jack Soo have fun as Mrs. Meers' lackeys and how wonderful are all of Muzzy's admirers? Absolute FUN from beginning to end!

    Load of Laughs and Fun

    Some parts dragged a little, but over all it was a joy. I loved the baby-face song and the opening number with Julie Anderws! It was a blast! If looking for a night of entertainment of the musical variety, try this one!!!
