Down and Out in Beverly Hills Reviews

Richard Schickel

On the basically farcical level where it chooses to stay, it is a funny and likable movie.

Although it is more of a comedy of manners than a well-developed story, there are enough yocks and bright moments to make it a thoroughly enjoyable outing.

Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

This update of Renoir's Boudu Saved from Drowning starts life as a satire on the tribal rites of the new and filthy rich, but goes badly wrong somewhere down the line.

As a comedy of manners it has a dependably keen aim, with its most wicked barbs leavened by Mr. Mazursky's obvious fondness for his characters.

Let me just say that Down and Out in Beverly Hills made me laugh longer and louder than any film I've seen in a long time.

Paul Mazursky hasn't only remade Jean Renoir's sublime 1931 Boudu Saved From Drowning: he's yuppified it, inverting virtually every meaning until the film becomes a celebration of the crassest kind of materialism.
