Audience Reviews for Champagne for Caesar


Cute comedy but rather thin and not worthy of the talents of the top lined trio. Points however for the audacity to name Celeste's character Flame.

One of my favourite 50s comedies, especially because of Price's performance, he's hilarious. The story is really clever and funny as well, and Colman is the perfect choice to play the main character. If you're a fan of either of them, I highly recommend checking out this movie.
