Edwards odd reworking of his orginal German-language film garnered awards at the time but hasn't aged well.

A star vehicle for his wife Julie Andrews, Blake Edwards' Victor/Victoria takes its gender-bending premise to preposterous levels, but results in a sparkling and hugely enjoyable musical comedy.

Edwards' enjoyable musical farce boasts terrific turns from Julie Andrews as a starving artist playing a man impersonating a woman, Garner as a Chicago gangster, Preston as the flamboyant gay friend, and Lesley Ann Warren as the perpetually horny floozie

Victor/Victoria is so good, so exhilarating, that the only depressing thing about it is the suspicion that Mr. Edwards is going to have a terrible time trying to top it.

Because Edwards' cast so skillfully convinces us that his tightly controlled environments are loosely thrown together, the energy level of Victor/Victoria rarely flags.

For fans of lightweight song and mildly controversial subject material, Victor/Victoria makes for delightful farce.

Blake Edwards's 1982 sex comedy has the most beautiful range of tones of any American film of its period: it is a work of dry wit, high slapstick, black despair, romantic warmth, and penetrating intelligence.
