Audience Reviews for The Knack, and How to Get It

    Poor Michael Crawford needs help from his friend to get a girlfriend, at least he thinks he needs help. This movie is pretty funny most of the time, but it's not all that interesting, it's just entertaining.

    Very much a product of it's time, which is probably why I found it produced smiles rather than full on laughs. That being said it still manages to be rather charming and enjoyable. Richard Lester does a good job directing, continuing the style of "A Hard Day's Night". Rita Tushingham is also good in her girl from the North role. Just a little fact, "The Knack" features a few rising actresses in thier first (be it uncredited) roles. Jane Birkin as the girl on the motorcycle, Charlotte Rampling as the girl water skiing and Jacqueline Bisset, but I didn't manage to spot her! <a href="http://s135.photobucket.com/albums/q156/bozley04/?action=view¤t=knack_02.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q156/bozley04/knack_02.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    A quirky film, full of fun and silliness "swinging 60's" style! It has a Benny Hill meets Austin Powers sort of feel to it. As a fan of Ms. Tushingham I'll admit that my feelings are a little biased, but she is definately the glue here. Though the rest of the cast does a fine job as well. We were surprised to see several "up and comings stars pop up through out, including several future cast memebers from The Vicar Of Dibley! A very young John Bluthal (Frank) and someone who looked and sounded like a very young Roger Lloyd-Pack (Owen) as one of the (uncredited ?) who heckled Rita from the windows as she passed. In any case it's a fun little jaunt if you like films that are more style then substance.

    Lively and extravagant sexual satire. Richard Lester's trademark blend of cinematic anarchism, surrealistic sketches and slap-stick comedy come perfectly in the backdrop of the swinging sixties London and its hedonistic inhabitants: mods and rockers coexisting with hostile hordes of middle-aged squares.
