Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? Reviews

'Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter' is a devastatingly cute comedy, where Mansfield excels at mocking her own bombshell bleached-blond character in a hilarious way, helped by an endearing Tony Randall. Tashlin's adaptation of Axelrod's play is also a smart satire of America within the 50's, mocking and laughing on success, publicity and stars in a playful way.

A dated comedy that is more smart than it is funny.

Pretty damn funny, in a satirical kind of way. Still holds up nearly 60 years later.

A tad over the top at times, but still a very funny and charming movie to boot.

Frothy, fun comedy with some smart jabs at advertising and fan worship. Tony Randall is a hoot as the suddenly fish out of water main character and Jayne Mansfield, repeating her stage triumph, is a knockout and proves an adapt comedienne. Had she had more roles like this her career at the top might not have been so short. Joan Blondell scores strongly as Jayne's right hand woman.

This movie is hilarious and definitely stands the test of time. All most viewers need us a very brief understanding of the 50s

Will the title spoil the plot?
Very well written movie. Top notch. A deluge of double entendres, which I tend to hate. But they were more cute & tongue in cheek than self-important. Fantastic story. Hits on most levels. Though the satire about TV is funny, it also comes across as somewhat bitter at times. Looks like Hollywood felt threatened.
Awesome performance from Randall. Mansfield too. She plays her part to perfection, with all her high-pitched squeals. Super direction. Tons of laughs. I enjoyed it much. The ending is priceless.

Looney Tunes director Frank Tashlin, creates a Looney Tunes version of Mad Men, complete with a high pitched squeling Jane Mansfield, and starring Tony Randall. Candy CinemaScope fun.

Witty, entertaining comedy starring Tony Randall and Jayne Mansfield in the role that made her famous.

Thoroughly enjoyed this genuinely funny satire.

Inventive fluff, which is, of course, the best kind of fluff

A more appropriate title would be: Will Jayne Mansfield's Incredibly Pointy Boobs Spoil Rock Hunter? They certainly annoyed Rock's girlfriend who went on a crazy exercise regime. No matter how many push-up's you do, your boobs don't get any bigger, lady. Did boob jobs exist in the fifties?

Sublime, formally inventive comedy from the great Frank Tashlin. What's not to love about a movie that has a Grucho Marx cameo?

A joyful Comedy with a lot of crazy jokes. Jayne Mansfield`s demeanor is hilarious and to tell you the truth, a bit annoying after a while. I loved the opening with the fox logo, great stuff.

The squares discover non-Euclidean geometry in an ad firm. Hollywood genius.
