BRILLIANT SWINGING SIXTIES BRITISH COMEDY (by joe88)
Not sure why it doesn't play in Peoria, apparently, but this is a very funny, clever British comedy. It's set at the end of the "swinging sixties". Peter Sellars is fantastic as the rich, forty-something serial womaniser. The perfectly delectable Goldie Hawn, playing a 19 year American girl in London, is, initially, Sellars' "catch of the day". But the urbane TV food critic can't stop himself from falling for the dizzy American blond.Humour, pathos, great script, strong performances from the leads and supporting caste.It's a great film, and the best gag <more>
I ran across this movie on the tv and could not turn it off. Peter Sellers plays an unlikable fellow who falls for an extremely warm and cute Goldie Hawn who wouldn't? . The way that Goldie's character holds herself from the beginning of the movie to the end is untraditional even today. This movie gave me a different angle into human relations and also I found it very funny. Peter Sellers role was a difficult sell, but I think he pulls it off well.
"By God, but you're lovely!" (by ShadeGrenade)
I'm very fond of this film. For one thing, I'm in the same profession as 'Robert Danvers' the Peter Sellers character , only I do not have a television show! It is also very funny, bounces along with nice Mike D'abo pop songs, and Goldie Hawn gets to show off her bum! But I digress. This 1970 Roy Boulting-directed comedy was based on the stage play by Terence Frisby and gave Sellers his biggest hit in years, also launching the lovely Goldie on a career that ultimately spanned three decades. 'Danvers' is a handsome television chef adored by millions, especially <more>
women in the first twenty minutes he beds both Nicola Pagett and Gabrielle Drake - though not at the same time! , a cross between Robert Carrier and Warren Beatty, the sort of man whose after shave enters a room twenty minutes before he does. En route to a party, he meets 'Marion' Hawn , a kooky film critic Barry Norman once claimed Hawn reminded him of a 'very sexy budgerigar'. I'm sure he meant it in the nicest possible way young American on the rebound from a failed relationship with scruffy pop group drummer Jimmy Nicky Henson . Danvers takes Marion to his flat, a virtual seduction parlour fitted out with the latest kinky gadgets. But she has heard his chat-up lines before and proceeds to take the wind out of his sails. Danvers retreats to bed, all thoughts of sex forgotten. Over time their relationship blossoms. Despite the differences in their ages, they click. But fate rears its ugly head to break the happy couple apart...Whilst nowhere near as funny as say, Neil Simon's 'The Odd Couple', this is nevertheless enjoyably rude fun even if the wine tasting scene is remarkably similar to the one in 'Carry On Regardless' . Sellers apparently based 'Danvers' on the late Lord Patrick Lichfield, photographer and ladies man. He brings a regal dignity to the character, while Hawn is a more than fine foil for him. The supporting cast includes Tony Britton, Diana Dors, John Comer, and Francoise Pascal of 'Mind Your Language' .I note that some have taken offence at the spectacle of a young woman cavorting with a middle-aged man. It might surprise these same people to know that us older guys still enjoy sex as much as we did when we were in our teens. The only difference is that these days it takes us longer. But we manage.What lets the movie down a bit is the unbelievable ending. Despite his wealth, Danvers is dumped by Marion for Jimmy. "He needs me, you don't!", is her reasoning. He also needs a good bath and a dose of penicillin, you foolish girl. Still, they say love is blind.This 'Soup' manages to be nice and tasty and gave 'The Incredible Hulk' his first big-screen appearance! He's on a poster in Jimmy's flat, in case you're wondering . Shame that Sellers and Hawn did not work together again.
There's A Girl In My Soup is the 1970 film version of a stage play. Peter Sellers plays a louche middle-aged womanising TV personality, totally convinced of his own irresistibility. Goldie Hawn, in her second featured film appearance after her Best Supporting Actress Oscar in Cactus Flower made it clear that the ditzy blonde from Laugh-In was, after all, just a performance plays a young American who is singularly unimpressed, and immune to his advances. He has to offer her something genuine of himself before she will embark on an affair: he then falls for her, an experience for which he <more>
is totally unprepared.While this movie is far from perfect, there is much to enjoy. Both Sellers and Hawn give of their best, there is some sparkling dialogue, and there were some good songs by Mike D'Abo on the soundtrack.Above everything, though, this is a very 1970 film, in terms of both its look and feel, and also the attitudes portrayed.
I enjoyed this film and am surprised at the low rating at time of writing . It's really a Rom-Com of two people totally unsuited to each other, and the rest of the story people have already commented about. Peter Sellers in this film, oozes smarminess, as the philanderer and gives a very strong performance. There are some excellent scenes here including a pure Inspector Clouseau moment, where Peter Sellers picks up the cases to take them out of the flat/house - hilarious, and worth the watch alone.I liked the very late 1960's vibe to the picture, but the music/soundtrack missed the <more>
mark I thought who was listening to this type of music in 1970? . Poor Mike d'Abo sings well enough but he can't turn an average tune into Handbags and Gladrags sadly.Goldie Hawn turns in a decent performance as the young blond air head. This also looks like this was her first major role in a film, and she does get to do her trademark giggle, which fortunately, was limited to just a couple of times. She did go on subsequently, to make many other films. Perhaps her most funniest moment on screen here, was in the lift. The support cast were adequate, and the boyfriend Nicky Henson puts in a decent turn. An actor who I was impressed with, was Peter Sellers's friend Andrew, played by Tony Britton, who with a small part, played it so well. Whilst here, another very good moment to look out for is when Sellers's character is on television giving his cooking instructions, which is full of double entendre's, not unlike the TV cooks I see nowadays.Overall a good entertaining movie, and I'll certainly watch it again.
