Product Description

Two unique comic talents, Academy Award(r) nominee Peter Sellers (Best Actor in a Leading Role Being There, 1979 and Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, 1964) and AcademyAward(r) winner Goldie Hawn (Best Actress in a Supporting Role Cactus Flower, 1969), join forces in asaucy romance about an amorous gourmet whose goose is cooked when he falls for a giddy young temptress. Robert Danvers (Peter Sellers), a TV cooking expert who moonlights as a self-styled Casanova, runs into cheerfully amoral Marion (Goldie Hawn), who's been ejected by her boyfriend from their flat. After Robert installs Marion in his London love nest, he pursues her with complete incompetence and gets more than he bargained for. This not-so-dumb blonde outrages his palate and shatters his macho veneer. When Marion's boyfriend begs her to come back, Robert has a choice'sharing Marion or losing her. Sellers humor added to Hawn's zaniness makes one delicious comedy.

The best that can be said for There's a Girl in My Soup is that it is not quite as bad as its reputation. A belly flop in the careers of Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn (she was fresh off her Oscar® for Cactus Flower), this Boulting brothers production did nothing to showcase the sparkling comic talents of those two performers. Sellers has some nice moments early as a famous TV-host twit, whose career as a serial seducer is halted after meeting hippie chick Goldie. It's one double-entendre after another: "You only want one thing," says one of Sellers's conquests. "Yes, but what a lovely thing," he sighs. Seen now, the movie is most fun for its goofy look at the gestalt of swinging London: Sellers' automated bachelor pad was surely an inspiration to the Austin Powers folks, and his checkered beige suit must be seen to be believed. --Robert Horton

I've waited more than 4 years for this movie to come out on DVD, which is surprising since practically everything Peter Sellers has ever done, has been out on DVD for some time now. This movie sort of fell through the cracks, like so many movies from the 1970's have, for some reason.
Peter Sellers plays the role of a womanizing "galloping gourmet" type television celebrity (Robert Danvers) in 1970's London. This was a time when the Kings Road in London was an exciting hippie hangout, and not the commercial high street that it has become today. Goldie Hawn (Marion) plays the role of a very young and sexy hippie, whom Peter Sellers pick's up while parking his Rolls Royce on the Kings Road.
Goldie has been rejected by her current drummer boyfriend at a party, because he wants to pass her along "like a tray of cakes" to his other mates. Feeling sad, rejected, and used she stands outside on the Kings Road pondering her dilemma. Just as Peter Sellers parks his car, he notices her. Being the consummate playboy, he decides that pursuing Goldie would be far more enjoyable than any stuffy house party. In his charming way he starts up a conversation with Goldie, in the hope of eventually seducing her. Goldie on the other hand is annoyed and sarcastically amused with Seller's slow round about way of picking her up. Obviously Goldie's boyfriend and his mates, don't bother with seduction in an age of "free love". In an act of revenge, Goldie decides to get back at her boyfriend and his mates by running off with Sellers.
What was suppose to be a one night stand, ends up becoming an affair that stretches over several days.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Priceless Sellers Performance December 3, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
"There's a Girl in My Soup" is an offbeat romantic-comedy with Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn in top form. Sellers' portrayal of vain, egocentric TV gourmand Robert Danvers is an incisive takeoff on Graham Kerr. This Boulting production received some savage reviews which, in retrospect, seem unwarranted. It was one of Sellers' better efforts during a particularly lean creative period and his chemistry with Hawn is strong - one wishes they had teamed up for another film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Theres a girl in my soup September 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Robert Danvers, played by the zany Peter Sellers, is a smooth talking, jet setting, womanizing television chef who heats up more than just dinner. This chef's got a menu that's off the charts. There is one problem: he can't seem to keep his dinner down. Chewing them up and spitting them out is his culinary masterpiece. That's until an unlikely doe-eyed waif of a girl young enough to be his daughter steps up. Marion, played by Goldie Hawn, is one outta sight chick who is not afraid to send her meal back. After being flung around by some youngsters it's time for Marion to play with the big boys . . . and boy does she do just that. Just wait till the ending; it will leave you savoring for more. Did I mention the catchy tune that will be in your head for days to follow. Hmmmm. . . . I wonder if I can get Roger to find out who sings it?

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Rom-Com October 26, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a terrifically engaging May-December romance picture about a middle aged lothario (Peter Sellers) who begins to question his value system when he embarks on an affair with an outspoken hippie chick(Goldie Hawn) in swinging London. Sellers and Hawn are wonderful together and there is a discernible screen chemistry between them. My only qualm with the film is that it's central message throughout is to extol the virtues of romance and fidelity but the ending negates that for one of promiscuity.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you can bear the soundtrack, it's a GEM! July 12, 2004
By A Customer
Terrible music that will unfortunately stick in your head for days, but Goldie and Peter are so witty, touching and hilarious in this movie, it's worth it. I especially enjoyed the scene where Peter's character helps Goldie's character move out of her boyfriend's flat...classic. Some great moments. (It might even make you cry - and not just because of the music!) Kind of an odd movie and probably an acquired taste, but I love to pull this one out every few years and watch it again.

3.0 out of 5 stars The lady's in love... June 23, 2008
Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn in a romantic comedy? While you may think the partnership might fall flat, THERE'S A GIRL IN MY SOUP presents the two talented comic actors in a fun love story, playing mismatched May-December lovers.

Based on a long-running London play, Peter Sellers plays Robert Danvers, successful TV cooking host and serial womaniser, who meets his match in free-spirited hippie chick Marion (Goldie Hawn) when she stays the night in his swanky apartment. Marion dumps her cheating boyfriend (Nicky Henson) to accompany Robert on a trip to Paris where, despite Robert's best efforts to stop it, love begins to bloom for the determined bachelor...

THERE'S A GIRL IN MY SOUP (1970) was typical fare from director Roy Boulting and producer John Boulting, who specialised in low-brow sex comedies. Generally panned by most critics, the film was a mild box-office hit, buoyed by the star power of Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn, who had just won the Academy Award for her performance in "Cactus Flower". Co-stars include familiar British faces like Tony Britton, Gabrielle Drake, Nicola Pagett, and Thorley Walters, plus a "special appearance" from Diana Dors.

Fun, uncomplicated romantic comedy nonsense. The DVD includes both widescreen and full-frame versions of the movie. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).
