Movie Info

In this thoroughly-entertaining romantic comedy, Georgy is a slightly-overweight virgin in her early '20s who shares an apartment with the gorgeous, promiscuous Meredith. Georgy has never been the subject of the desire for any man until a married friend of her family decides he would like her for his mistress.

    Georgy Girl is a sad commentary on the choices available to a frumpy girl in the 1960's. Nonetheless, it is an enjoyable movie.

    Lynn Redgrave of course uses the Georgy girl character to launch her into a career as the Weight Watchers spokesperson. The original portrayal of Georgy is not offensive, it still is a little off.

    Georgy is my favourite teen character from the sixties. This movie is both realistic and comic. It's a great story , and I really enjoyed this movie.

    This film was a bummer. Lesson I got from the film: you too can find love even if you're overweight and not particularly goodllooking. If you have a great personality you may just be lucky enough to get someone's leftovers or a creepy older man to stalk you. I liked Georgy (a great performance by Lynn Redgrave) and thought she deserved so much better. Also a great representation of the time and place, another film that has me wondering if the 60's were really so great for women.
