Critic Reviews for Calamity Jane
Doris Day works very, very hard at being Calamity and is hardly realistic at all.
Boisterous fun, with Day's performance - as the song goes - as busy as a fizzy sarsaparilla.
Even if the screenwriters were obviously inspired by the mega-success of Annie Get Your Gun, that doesn't make this funny, rambunctious entertainment a mere rip-off.
The opening sequence of this wonderful musical is pure pleasure, as Doris Day rides the Deadwood stage across the screen and into our hearts.
A must for Doris Day fans -- she gives a rousing, no-holds barred performance that is unquestionably the making of the film.
Audience Reviews for Calamity Jane
rootin tootin and rambunctious
Doris Day wheels out Que Sera yet again in a comic western that will appeal to fans of romantic musicals. Of which I am not one.
Doris Day is on a role with this role. The songs, oh the songs. Howard Keel... The old west. The humour. The fun. The action. Oh how I love this film!
