The choice of Mark Robson, a talented Hollywood journeyman director, for this piece of nonsense was inspired.

You won't want to miss a word of the deliciously bad dialogue in this Hollywood tale of twisted sisters.

It thinks it it is incredibly sophisticated and clever, when it is just the dumbest damn thing.

Creative Loafing
October 8, 2016
The newfound envelope-pushing in cinema, tested so brilliantly in 1967 by Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate, is botched here.

It has much of what we require from truly great camp; namely, it takes itself with utter seriousness, and the further it goes down that rabbit hole, the less aware it seems of its own ridiculousness, the funnier it becomes.

It's an okay premise, but it still is weighted down with so much of the 60s that I find it hard to relate.

Based on Susann's steamy bestseller, this delightfully absurd and lurid saga of three girls in "corrupt and corrupting" Hollywood has become a cult classic due to its campy lines.

Jacqueline Susann's 'exposé' of Hollywood gets the cliché-ridden treatment it deserves from Robson.
