Editorial Reviews

"It's entertainment that fills up the screen like she fills out a bikini," the trailer for Don't Make Waves proclaimed. She is Sharon Tate, portraying a beach-loving, sky-diving beauty named Malibu. The entertainment filling up the screen is a gleeful sand-and-surf-and-sex satire based on Ira Wallach's Muscle Beach, set to a title tune by The Byrds and targeting SoCal's go-go beach culture and the high-living hillside denizens of its ocean-view enclaves. Tony Curtis, reteaming with director Andrew Mackendrick of Sweet Smell of Success, plays an eastern interloper who arrives with little and hits on ways to finagle his way into lots. Also making waves: Claudia Cardinale, Robert Webber, Joanna Barnes and bodybuilder David Draper.

This really is a pretty good little movie, it's just too bad it's been so overlooked. It's just plain FUN. Perfect 60's mind candy. The music's pretty good, the cinematography is A1, and the performances are all good. I'm no Tony Curtis fan, but he's really good here. Playing a self-serving opportunist you still can't help but like him. Ironically, he utters the film's best line"If you look at things realistically you'll never fall in love. You just eliminate everyone you can't stand, and see who's left-if anyone". Claudia Cardinale is magnifico as the accident-prone Laura. Not only is she beautiful, she's a fine comedienne too boot. Robert Webber and Joanna Barnes step into their roles of the bickering married couple as if they were written especially for them. They truly make these roles their own. David Draper is oddly appealing as the dim-witted muscleman Harry. He actually makes you care about him, giving a lot more depth than usual to such a throwaway part. But the film really belongs to Sharon Tate. She steals every scene she's in effortlessly, and she also looks pretty damn good in a bikini too. In the skydiving sequence when she tells Carlo(Curtis' character) to "hold on tight" he looks as if he's more than happy to oblige. He looks as if he's died and gone to heaven. Somehow I couldn't help wondering how much real acting he did in the scene. You'd have to be a eunuch not to react to her. I had trouble with the landslide sequence at first, but it makes perfect sense. All the plots loose threads are effectively tied up here. Rod and Diane(Webber and Barnes) are able to come to a new understanding of each other. Harry and Malibu(Draper and Tate) are reunited, their love stronger than ever.Read more ›

[Don't Make Waves - (1967) - Widescreen presentation] I'm loving the Warner Bros. Archive Collection, as it gives a small but rabid audience the ability to see films from bygone days that there's only a small market for today. I'm not loving the pricing, however, but patience has its rewards, because sooner or later the prices do drop somewhat, making them accessible without feeling like you're getting hosed. At least not with a water cannon.

And speaking of water, 'Don't Make Waves' is a solid screwball comedy from the latter half of the 60's that still has its charm, warmth and humor intact, unlike some films from this era that haven't aged as well. Although it's being falsely promoted as a Sharon Tate vehicle, the stars are Tony Curtis and Claudia Cardinale, both of whom shine and make this one worth watching. Tony Curtis is perfectly restrained here, unlike some of his over-reaching comedies that occasionally become grating, and the shorter leash suits him perfectly. Claudia Cardinale is absolutely adorable as the Italian 'kept' woman of style who's got a feisty temper and is a bit clumsy in her driving skills, starting a chain of events that snowball steadily until the end credits roll. Not typically recognized for her comedic skills, she's captivating in every scene she's in, even stealing some laughs from Curtis overtly. And the colorful outfits she sports look fantastic on her well-tanned European endowments. Fans of Preston Sturges and Howard Hawks' screwball comedies from the 30's and 40's should enjoy this film, as well as anyone who enjoys 60's films and nostalgia - the fashion, décor and Southern California shoreline are all vivid visual feasts displayed to bedazzle.

Tony Curtis has obviously made some bad choices in film roles and has been pretty bad in most of them. BUT Not this one. While this film is dated it is still actually funny and would be a perfect companion with the upcoming video release of the Austin Powers sequel. Sharon Tate reveals a lot more than skin in this. She shows that while sexy you could be vunerable and the promise of what may have been had she not been stopped.

Alexander Mackendrick has one of the oddest film careers imaginable, lurching from brilliant satire (THE MAN IN THE WHITE SUIT), to smashing melodrama (SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS) to off-beat swashbuckler (A HIGH WIND IN JAMAICA), and finally to this eccentric romantic comedy about a hustling drifter (Tony Curtis) adrift amidst various California oddballs. It never quite works, but there is so much offbeat charm, particularly in Sharon Tate's deadpan takeoff of a California beach bunny, that you finally don't care if it doesn't work. And Curtis is in there working, by the way, giving yet another of his deft, underrated comic performances. But so few people appreciated comedy--until it's too late . . .

What do you get when you mix a conniving Tony Curtis as a shady grifter with an accident on two legs like Claudia Cardinelli in a plot that involves beach front house along a gorgeous stretch of Malibu Beach? The kind of outrageous pandemonium that only a Hollywood screenwriter could imagine. Yet it is also an interesting character study of a number of individual minor characters, and it is this aspect of the film that makes its histrionics and dumb jokes somehow more palatable. Watch for the scenes with the late and beautiful Sharon Tate and big bodybuilder Dave Draper, who ignite on screen together in a sweet and almost innocent way in front of the camera. Big Dave never made a career in fims, but this movie shows he could act, and that he had a unique sort of charisma on-screen at that. I save this one for cold winter nights when my California dreaming is at a fever pitch. I always seem to enjoy it. I hope you will too.
