Critic Reviews for Belle of the Nineties

All Critics (4)

...a hopelessly forgettable effort that seems to have been assembled around a series of admittedly strong one-liners (ie the story is generic to an almost absurd degree).

January 25, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Disappointing Mae West vehicle that lacks wit and a good story.

July 7, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It's fast, fun and funny -- and the best-looking movie Mae West ever made, having the shimmery luster you only saw in Paramount movies.

August 17, 2011 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Creaky and dated, but Mae West and her biting dialogue still sparkle.
