Critic Reviews for What a Way to Go!
Hard to define but easy to recommend; the 20th-Fox presentation is a funny musical comedy, or comedy with music, with all the glamour that Hollywood can throw into one film, and a high-powered cast to light the marquee.May 15, 2018 | Full Review…
J. Lee Thompson's direction has failed to coalesce a good, firm farce. It lets the whole thing flap wildly -- and that's no way to make a film.June 17, 2008 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
A big, gaudy, gimmicky comedy which continually promises more than it delivers by way of wit and/or bellylaffs.June 17, 2008 | Full Review…
What a Way to Go is supposed to have cost six million dollars, which averages out to about a million and half a laugh.March 16, 2020 | Full Review…
[Spells] out each joke for the slow readers and then repeating it for those who can't read at all.August 13, 2019 | Full Review…
The talents of an incredible group of actors are pooled for this effervescent comedy that was originally conceived as a starring vehicle for Marilyn Monroe.August 16, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for What a Way to Go!
Nov 12, 2020An expensive bauble that pretends to be a rare and unique gem but is actually only a shiny piece of glass. A glossy appearance, tons of glorious costumes, a cadre of character actors nodding their approval and loads of A-list big-name talent cannot hide that that is all that is there: a present that is all wrapping paper but no present. Blah.Kevin M. W Super Reviewer
Jun 11, 2012Silly shenanigans with Shirley a daffy delight as she works through a series of husbands and crazy production numbers. Her costumes have to be seen to be believed.jay n Super Reviewer
Nov 19, 2008A delightful confection of a movie made primarily to showcase Edith Head's sumptuous outfits. It's really an experience to see all these big stars having a grand old time f-cking each other in a big glass of champagne. A satire of sorts, but the main purpose of seeing this movie is to have FUN, because you're never gonna see anything like this again.Jennifer X Super Reviewer
