Audience Reviews for Auntie Mame

    Goofy, but Rosalind Russell's performance is comedic gold.

    "Auntie Mame" is the funniest movie to come out of the 1950's. It's far funnier (and frankly, far better) than the Lucile Ball musical remake, "Mame", but it's nowhere near as charming. Despite its anachronistic set elements and its offensive stereotyping, "Auntie Mame" is a brilliant film and an absolute classic.

    NEVER have I seen such a stylish set. Massive props on that. Rosalind Russell is a goddess. And anyone who says otherwise should be done away with. Yes, it was a bit long and dragged at times, but the comedy was so witty and on the ball that who cares?! I loved this. It's such a perfect film and perfect comedy!

    Just hilarious, with an endlessly quotable script. All the cast are outstanding, from Peggy Cass as Agnes Gooch ("Will it mix with Dr.Pepper?"), Coral Browne as Vera Charles ("My God that moon's bright!") and Joanna Barnes as Gloria ("It was ghastly! Simply ghastly!"). But best of all of course is Rosalind Russell, "Yes! Live! Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!". Greatly exceeded my expectations, I wish I had an Auntie Mame.....
