Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Attention, all you survivors of the Swinging '60s: If the only thing you remember about What's New, Pussycat? is Tom Jones's immortal rendition of the Burt Bacharach-Hal David title tune, you're way overdue for another look at this zany 1965 farce. Written by Woody Allen, Pussycat casts Peter O'Toole as the suave editor of a Parisian fashion magazine, a guy who's troubled by his inability to avoid getting involved with beautiful women. Convinced he needs psychiatric help, O'Toole turns to a shrink Peter Sellers who's nuttier than any of his patients. The resulting pandemonium is easily recognizable as something conjured up by Allen's febrile imagination, and although the gags aren't all home runs, his batting average is impressive. Director Clive Donner doesn't impose much style on the proceedings; he's content to let an attractive and personable cast do all the heavy lifting. The requisite pulchritude is supplied -- amply, we might add -- by Romy Schneider, Capucine, and Paula Prentiss, with the latter displaying the inimitable timing and delivery that made her a fine, if underused, comedic actress. Sellers plays the shrink with a thick German accent and mugs outrageously to good effect, and Allen makes his film debut as one of his trademark nebbishes. There's nothing profound or sophisticated about What's New, Pussycat?, and it is unmistakably a product of its times. But that doesn't diminish the picture's entertainment value one little bit, as you'll discover when you get this neatly remastered DVD.

    A reviewer

    In 1965, I saw this movie at a theater in downtown Manhattan, NY, with my parents. I was 7-years-old! My siblings and I thought it was the most hysterical film we ever saw. After seeing the movie, us children would throw ourselves on the floor and go around in circles like the Peter Seller's character in the film. I recently purchased this DVD to relive that film moment of 40 years ago. What a chore! I like funny but this was painfully not funny. I tired of them all. I thought it was ironic that they made Paula Prentiss the American head-case. She was the only good thing in the movie this time around. At one point I thought perhaps the movie was trying to make fun of Fellini's 8/12, 1963. There was one scene where O'Toole is having some kind of nightmare in bed. All his past loves were appearing to him in a la 8/12. But I'm sorry, Peter O'Toole cannot hold a candle to gorgeous manly Marcello Mastroianni's Guido in 8/12. I would watch "What's New Pussycat?" with the mindset that it is an attempt to make an outlandish farce about mores of the 60's. Keyword attempt. See Sellers in The Party or Shot In the Dark to get a real good laugh of him in the 60's.
