Victor/Victoria

Critics Consensus

Driven by a fantastic lead turn from Julie Andrews, Blake Edwards' musical gender-bender is sharp, funny and all-round entertaining.

Movie Info

Victoria Grant (Julie Andrews), a down-and-out British soprano, struggles to find work in the nightclubs of 1930s Paris. While trying to scam a free meal, Grant meets cabaret performer Toddy (Robert Preston), who comes up with an idea that will change everything. Acting as her manager, Toddy bills Grant as a male female impersonator. When the nightclubs eat it up, the duo makes it big -- even a Chicago mobster (James Garner) is enamored with Grant. But keeping the truth a secret is no easy task.

Audience Reviews for Victor Victoria

    This gender-bending film is the last great Blake Edwards film before he submitted to a bunch of bland comedies including a string of rehash Pink Panther films that just replayed old, stale laughs. Victor Victoria, though, was fresh for its time and offers great performances by the entire cast especially Robert Preston, James Garner and Julie Andrews.

    Julie Andrews is fantastic as a male impersonator and that would be enough to carry the film but you have to love confused James Garner who is attracted but wonders if he should be. A true mind bender. It's always nice to see Music Man Robert Preston on the big screen as well.

    One of my favorite performances by Julie Andrews. Also its worth noting that the comedic bits don't get out of control, which can often happen in Blake Edwards' stuff . . . probably because there is an actual story happening here.

    Exceptionally enjoyable singing by Andrews. Wonderful presence by Preston and Andrews. Great, Oscar award winning music. Remarkably affirming attitudes for the early 1980s. I think I may have a new favorite comedy!
