Critic Reviews for Goodbye Charlie
Under Vincente Minnelli's direction, the film has a certain style and pace. But it is much more vulgar than stylish, much more sluggish and dull than fast.
Minnelli, whose work brings together an extraordinary set of themes, looks at the violence and the lust of Hollywood, the riotous pleasure-seeking of its players big and small.
Even by delving into fantasy for its wildly implausible premise this picturization of George Axelrod's not-so-successful 1960 Broadway play doesn't come off as anything but the mildest type of entertainment.
Nonsensical sci-fi comedy.March 16, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Both Miss Reynolds and Tony Curtis behave gamely, but Goodbye Charlie is one of those games that will never be won.

Audience Reviews for Goodbye Charlie
Sep 08, 2014Cinema great Vincent Minnelli directed this light appetizer about gender swapping. Within the early 1960's Hollywood community infidelity is rampant and no one is faulting one hack screenwriter Charlie Sorel, until a jealous husband (Walter Matthau, playing a Hungarian continental type playboy) catches him in the act and shoots him. Dead. Sorel's bestie (Tony Curtis) is surprised then when his life long buddy shows up again, reincarnated. As Debbie Reynolds. She's pretty good, too.Kevin M. W Super Reviewer
Jan 03, 2009At times tasteless but generally breezy gender switching comedy and certainly better than the awful remake "Switch". Debbie is glamorous and ribald, Tony suitably exasperated and its interesting to see Ellen Burstyn this early in her career.jay n Super Reviewer
