What is startling here is the eye-popping colour, the self-reflexive photography and visual effects, the dance sequences (Fred Astaire with his umbrella), and the witty and ingenious use of the Paris locations.

This is London

If you're prepared to do a bit of revisionist thinking, it all makes sense.

Astaire could still dance up a storm, no doubt about it, and this has its moments.

Little White Lies

It's an intermittently charming trifle with directorial style to burn in the place of any kind of satisfactory substance.

A timeless musical treat and the most fun you can have with really elegant clothes on.

One of Hollywood's funniest, most stylish musicals, this breezy satire from 1957 thrives on the pairing of Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn.

...a sporadically engaging yet hopelessly erratic old-school musical.

Sensation trumps cogitation-unsurprising in a Hollywood production-which doesn't negate the enduring allure of this beautiful bauble.

Bubbly, fashion-crazed Hepburn-Astaire musical.

Of her iconic films, Hepburn shines the most in Funny Face by focusing on what makes her beautiful.

...can clunk like a tin can in the dryer. But hey, we're talking Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire, so that's some mighty elegant slack we're willing to cut here.

Despite some memorable musical numbers, gorgeous sets and energy galore, there's something about Funny Face that wasn't working for me, and it wasn't just the absurd idea about Audrey Hepburn being a frumpy bore.

I didn't appreciate every song-and-dance sequence, yet I could hardly keep my eyes off the screen for all the showy merriment going on.

One of Stanley Donen's most stylish and enjoyable films, this musical is a triumph for Astaire's spectacular dancing, Audrey Hepburn's elegant appearance, and the Gershwins splendid score.

The Devil may wear Prada, but the rest of the fashion world wears pink, at least according to Stanley Donen's endearingly naive Funny Face.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

At once more naturalistic and more stylized -- with Donen pushing Technicolor to the very limits of color saturation.

A film crucial to understanding Hepburn's glorious gamine appeal and one of Astaire's best musicals of the 1950s.

Funny Face...teams Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn in a delightfully balmy romance.
