Editorial Reviews

It's tough being the cat's meow! A "zany blend of slapstick gags and madcap comedy" (Cue), this "hilarious" (Motion Picture Herald) romp, starring Peter Sellers, Peter O'Toole and WoodyAllen in his acting and screenwriting debut, is the "wildest, wackiest" (Boxoffice) film to emerge from the swingin' '60s. Burt Bacharach's Oscar(r)-nominated* title song only adds tothe infectious appeal! Michael (O'toole) has a problem: he's a mademoiselle magnet! His demented psychiatrist (Sellers) and sex-starved friend (Allen) would kill for this problem, but his would-be fiancée (Romy Schneider) might just kill him. Undergoing therapy that would put Freud in a straitjacket, Michael tries to reform, but it won't be easy with sex kittens like Capucine, Paula Prentiss and Ursula Andress on his tail! *1965: Song (with Hal David)

Format: DVD
After a long wait for the release of this classic 60s comedy, MGM has tossed the film on its forgettable pile. For what was an extremely successful adult comedy at the time; a return for Peter Sellers after his near fatal heartattacks; the debut of Woody Allen, MGM has treated this film like the second half of a Chuck Norris double-bill. The DVD release is abysmal. It is compressed, it is not in the format of its theatrical release, the colors are washed out in MGM's usual, generic, neo-colorization process. The print is cut. Sequences have been trimmed because they are no longer politically correct. This is especially noticeable in the over-the-top Keystone Kops finale of the film. As an older viewer who saw this film in the theatre in 1965 (and many times thereafter), scenes from the original release are missing on this DVD. Although not outstanding and in questionable taste, the fact that they are missing is a disappointment. It is not a complete print of the original release. The sound mix is poor and that's being polite. How one would wish someone who is still alive and cares would give this film the kind of treatment that "Jaws" will get. I hate MGM. They used to be a studio of quality and now they are worse than Ted Turner in his colorization days.

The sound quality on the DVD was atrocious. Too bad, given the great Burt Bacharach score.

If you don't, you'll probably deduct a star or two. He's at his outrageous best (or worst) in WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT, and sometimes that isn't very pretty. Peter O'Toole plays off of him well, O'Toole is smooth like double malt scotch, and as for Woody Allen, it's hard to believe he won many fans with his antics here. He's much better in CASINO ROYALE, not to mention his own films. WNPC has a lot of zany, 60s, pop energy flying through it, the sets are lighter than air (bar the Chateau Chantel which looks as though it's made of stone) and much of the dialogue seems improvised by a knowing cast.

Capucine has been unfairly reviewed for her part in WNPC, for it is obvious that she was shoved into the movie at the last minute, probably on Feldman's say-so, since she had become his mistress. Yet she did better for herself, I think, before she knew him, kind of like the way Maria Callas was probably better off before becoming Onassis's pawn. She was one of the underused actresses in the early 60s, not a great time for women in general, and her statuesque good looks got her typed as a kind of chic accessory, not an actress at all, more like the "supermodels" of today. Perhaps having only one name didn't help her either, it makes the audience think twice all right but it makes you into a freak. Like "Cher" or "Twiggy." Anyway Capucine has long been thought of as the weak link in What's New Pussycat, but that's just a swipe at a dead woman who's not here to defend herself.

Paula Prentiss is wonderful as the poet slash stripper. As Burt Bacharach's theme music goes, "Stripping Really Isn't Sexy, Is It?

Though alot of the laughs here are scattershot, on the whole this is a thoroughly enjoyable bedroom farce. The film is not without it's flaws namely overlength, Peter Sellers at times seems to be channeling his Dr. Strangelove character in his portrayal of psychiatrist Dr. Fassbender, and writer Woody Allen's dweeby character seems an unlikely associate of Peter O'Toole's lothario. The film's virtues include O'Toole's account of a womanizer trying to reform his ways. O'Toole has a deft touch for the broad comedy he's asked to tackle here. Romy Schneider is effervescent as the woman O'Toole is trying to settle down with. It goes without saying that Paula Prentiss, Capucine, and Ursula Andress are stunning as the women who throw themselves at O'Toole despite his resistance. Great mod feel here(love the cars and costumes). Catchy Burt Bacharach-Hal David score including the memorable title tune. Great title sequence.

I am a big fan of Woody Allen and I presume that I will eventually get around to seeing all of his movies. Prior to viewing "What's New Pussycat?", I would have presumed that I would enjoy each and every movie. However, "What's New Pussycat?" has shown me that even Woody Allen can make a disaster movie.

What is wrong with this movie is just about everything. The acting can only do so much with an impossibly awful script and a director who seems to want to magnify the faults rather than cover them up. We start with a man whose problem is that he must seduce every acttractive woman he sees. Peter O'Toole won the rights to play this character and he is surrounded by beautiful women. He proceeds to make it all seem so boringly ridiculous. He calls all his femine friends "pussycat" which gets old after a while. He constantly displays a bewildered expression coupled with a rather interested/disinterested approach toward his playmates. He seeks the help of a sexually challenged psychiatrist played by Peter Sellers. Sellers does his best with what little he has to work with. He has the Dr. Strangelove accent down pretty good and he is constantly on the make but the humor that emerges is so weak as to be embarassing at times. Woody Allen wrote the script, which is the most shocking disappointment of the whole picture. I once heard a comedian remark that a good comic writer can give you 10 new jokes of which you can use 3. With Woody Allen, the comedian said, you can use all 10. In "What's New Pussycat?", I wish there HAD been at least three good jokes. This overlong look into the problems that O'Toole's character suffers from eventually attempts to save itself with a sort of Bennie Hill-style slapstick.
