Mrs. Pollifax-Spy Reviews

  • Mar 09, 2017

    Humdrum spy comedy that looks and feels like a television productions. Most of the action takes place in captivity and it's quite laborious by its end.

    It's a cute little movie; harmless and homogenized. Loved Darren McGavin and Rosalind Russell's performances. I know I'm in the minority here, it's enjoyable family fare.

    RR's final big screen role she adapted herself (under a pseudonym) from a popular adventure novel which spawned a series of books by the recently deceased Dorothy Gilman. The result is B-movie-ish, but many B-movies are entertaining, and this is one of them. You really want to see how Mrs. P. makes out. The director, Leslie Martinson, also did the campy 1966 Batman movie---so that should give you an idea of the tone.

    Has a lot of potential but just a mess of a movie. A perfect movie to be remade with a better script.

    Starts well but loses focus and sort of peters out.
