The choice of Mark Robson, a talented Hollywood journeyman director, for this piece of nonsense was inspired.

It's an okay premise, but it still is weighted down with so much of the 60s that I find it hard to relate.

Based on Susann's steamy bestseller, this delightfully absurd and lurid saga of three girls in "corrupt and corrupting" Hollywood has become a cult classic due to its campy lines.

Jacqueline Susann's 'exposé' of Hollywood gets the cliché-ridden treatment it deserves from Robson.

It's an unbelievably hackneyed and mawkish mish-mash of backstage plots and Peyton Place adumbrations.

It tries to raise itself to the level of sophisticated pornography, but fails. And it is dirty, not because it has lots of sex in it, but because it firmly believes that sex is dirty.

You won't want to miss a word of the deliciously bad dialogue in this Hollywood tale of twisted sisters.
