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 (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...

    Oct 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    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.
