Glossy trash with the star at full throttle, it's the quintessental La Liz movie.

A sleek and libidinous lingerie meller.

It's just about as awful as you'd expect, despite the presence of two first-class screenwriter.
March 26, 2009
Under director Daniel Mann's guidance it is an extremely sexy and intimate film, but the intimacy is only skin deep, the sex only a dominating behavior pattern.
May 29, 2008
When viewed today it's a work of considerable dreck, it's badly dated and unappealing.

April 9, 2007
"Mama face it, I was the slut of all time," Liz Taylor's hooker confronts her mother, and that's pretty much sums up the nature of this glossy, trashy melodrama that Hollywood used to make until TV appropriated the genre.

June 24, 2006
Once thought of as racy and adventurous in its treatment of sex, this turgid nonsense about a high-class whore with love in her heart has dated atrociously.

Mostly crap, but Elizabeth Taylor is hot

The dialogue is rough. Let's say O'Harrowing. And the ending is absurd. But so is most of it for that matter. It's the living it up that gets you in this film.

October 23, 2003
Taylor's heralded performance as the archetypal hooker ('the slut of all time!') with a heart of gold is a bit overrated.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
May 24, 2003
Taylor won an Oscar for her role in this, but holds the movie in scant regard compared to the rest of her work. And with good reason.
November 6, 2001
Though it's generally true that nothing dates faster than Hollywood's idea of what's daring, Butterfield 8 can be viewed as a fascinating artifact from the days when movie stars' offscreen myths were carefully woven into their on-screen roles.
July 25, 2001
Taylor deserves much of the credit for the movie's success, as she imbues Gloria with moxie and vulnerability at the same time.
