All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
For Julie Andrews' third movie musical, following the wildly successful Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, film producer Ross Hunter apparently tried and failed to get the rights to The Boyfriend, the faux-1920s musical in which Andrews had made her American theatrical debut. Instead, he developed his own faux-1920s musical, adding as co-stars Carol Channing, the star of the hit Broadway show Hello, Dolly!, and Mary Tyler Moore, fresh from five seasons as the co-star of TV's popular The Dick Van Dyke Show. In his liner notes, Hunter describes his attention to period detail, and he spent lavishly on a film that runs long enough to require an intermission. What he ...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
For Julie Andrews' third movie musical, following the wildly successful Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, film producer Ross Hunter apparently tried and failed to get the rights to The Boyfriend, the faux-1920s musical in which Andrews had made her American theatrical debut. Instead, he developed his own faux-1920s musical, adding as co-stars Carol Channing, the star of the hit Broadway show Hello, Dolly!, and Mary Tyler Moore, fresh from five seasons as the co-star of TV's popular The Dick Van Dyke Show. In his liner notes, Hunter describes his attention to period detail, and he spent lavishly on a film that runs long enough to require an intermission. What he didn't bother with were a coherent script not the concern of this review or an original song score for his musical. He did hire the songwriting team of Sammy Cahn and James Van Heusen known for their work with Frank Sinatra to pen a title song in the vein of "Anything Goes" and one other number. Otherwise, he used period songs such as "Baby Face," "Jazz Baby," and "Do It Again!" For the soundtrack album, Andrews does her usual sterling job with her lovely voice and careful British articulation though she sounds odd performing "Jewish Wedding Song" in Yiddish, while Channing enjoys herself as usual. Like the film, the soundtrack album, though only 36 and a half minutes long, is heavily padded with repetitions, medleys, and reprises. The effort here is to take a slight project and treat it like a blockbuster, hoping it will perform like one. [Note that none of Elmer Bernstein's Academy Award-winning score is included on this album.]

    Too cute for comfort

    Although this movie is very funny and entertaining, it was exactly the type of film that doomed Andrews' career (until it rebounded in the early 80's with more contemporary, adult roles). She runs around saying things like, "Gosh, gee whillikers" and singing silly songs. Mary Tyler Moore, an amazing dancer back then, was wasted. The true standout was Carol Channing in a supporting role. I love Andrews but after nearly 3 hours, you will start to roll your eyes and yawn.
