A veritable Parthenon of vulgarity and a supremely unfunny comedy that is pure eau de Fifty-Six.

Sure, the scenery is splashy and sporty in color and CinemaScope. But the show is as meager and witless as a cheap pin-up magazine joke.

Not one of Tashlin's better efforts.

Wild combination of cartoonish farce with seminal rock performances. Those milk bottles!

If Tashlin had had the nerve, he would have romantically paired Jayne Mansfield with Little Richard and set race relations in the United States forward by about thirty years.

Years before Kenneth Anger, Frank Tashlin located the decadent Babylon in Hollywood and found it not that different from the splashy Looney Tunes bonanzas he used to fashion during his salad days as an animator.

A sweet little fifties gem that should be viewed for the endearing tale and of course, who doesn't love Ms. Mansfield?...

Tashlin's savage lampoon of American notions of success and fulfillment is hilarious and genuinely appealing.
