Movie Info

Parisian nightclub owner Simone Pistache (Shirley MacLaine) is known for her performances of the can-can, a provocative dance recently outlawed for being immoral. Though her dancing delights patrons to no end, it also attracts the ire of the self-righteous Judge Philippe Forrestier (Louis Jourdan), who aims to punish her. The judge hatches a plot to photograph Simone in the act and ends up falling for her -- much to the chagrin of her boyfriend, handsome lawyer François Durnais (Frank Sinatra).

Critic Reviews for Can-Can

All Critics (3) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (2)

  • [The] Broadway hit of a few seasons ago has been processed into a big noisy musical which is pleasant entertainment although several of its top numbers are lacking in zip and sparkle... incongruously mingled in the speech patterns...

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

    February 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

  • Feb 26, 2013
    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.
