Critic Reviews for Calamity Jane
Doris Day works very, very hard at being Calamity and is hardly realistic at all.
Boisterous fun, with Day's performance - as the song goes - as busy as a fizzy sarsaparilla.
Even if the screenwriters were obviously inspired by the mega-success of Annie Get Your Gun, that doesn't make this funny, rambunctious entertainment a mere rip-off.
The opening sequence of this wonderful musical is pure pleasure, as Doris Day rides the Deadwood stage across the screen and into our hearts.
A must for Doris Day fans -- she gives a rousing, no-holds barred performance that is unquestionably the making of the film.
Audience Reviews for Calamity Jane
Why yes, as a matter of fact, I do know this film's entire script by heart. Doris Day has said it was her favorite movie to film, and you'll see why. She plays a tomboy at a time when tomboys simply weren't around. Sure, she finally "sees the light" and becomes feminine toward the end, but this is simply an all-around fun musical with fabulous songs and characters. And I suppose it doesn't hurt that Howard Keel's portrayal of Bill Hickok is hubba hubba
Doris Day is on a role with this role. The songs, oh the songs. Howard Keel... The old west. The humour. The fun. The action. Oh how I love this film!
rootin tootin and rambunctious
