Movie Info

Parisian saloon-keeper Shirley MacLaine pays off local police so her patrons can enjoy "illegal" entertainment. When trouble ensues, she calls on her freewheeling lawyer (Frank Sinatra) for help. Song-and-dance numbers abound, most notably three Cole Porter tunes and a ballet by Juliet Prowse.

Critic Reviews for Can-Can

All Critics (2)

A vulgar and lackluster version of Cole Porter's musical set in Gay Paree in 1896.

Feb 10, 2010 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Despite the star presence of Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine, this is a second-rate musical due to Walter Lang's pedestrian direction but some of Cole Porter's songs are wonderful.

Audience Reviews for Can-Can

Flashy and empty with a few good songs but the lead character is a fool and most of the supporting men contemptible worms who treat her appallingly.
