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)

2.0 out of 5 stars MGM disappoints again June 17, 2005
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.

Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
"What's New Pussycat" was Woody Allen's first major film release. Filmed in the city of love, Paris, the story centers around the very complicated love life of the character Michael James (Peter O'Toole), who is trying to stop seeing other women so that he can focus on the one woman he really loves, Carol (Romy Schneider). To help him overcome his sexual addictions, he seeks professional help from the pschotherapist Dr. Fritz Fassbender (Peter Sellers). Unfortuneately for Michael, Dr. Fassbander is in greater need of psychotherapy since his sexual addictions are even more complicated. In the opening scene of the movie, Dr. Fassbender and his wife Anna (Eddra Gale) are fighting about one of his love affairs that she has discovered. She asks him, "Is she prettier than me?" He responds, "Is she prettier than you? I am prettier than you!".
Can Dr. Fassbender help Michael overcome his addiction to love affairs to gain Carol's trust? You will probably enjoy discovering this answer by watching this very funny movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes, a forty-year old movie blah, blah, blah February 4, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
I love reading reviews by my God and Goddess-like contemporaries. It's so easy to pass judgement on distant bits of culture from our high and holy PC Olympus! I imagine if the Puritans had had the opportunity to write movie reviews they'd have had about the same tone.

Back in the Sixties (which, oddly, had a history other than that involving Viet Nam, Civil Rights, and Feminism) folks were shaking themselves loose of the straightjacket that had been on them since, at least, the Great Depression, at most, the 13th Century. People wanted fun, color, and wackiness, and they enjoyed getting it. Why else would big no-nonsense film companies interested in profits sink dough into plotless wonders like this film and, say, Casino Royale?

This is kind of a fascist age. Folks of all political stripes are into no-compromise black and white ethics. Everyone's got an opinion. Everyone knows what's right for you. A movie like this is just great for those of us who find all this SERIOUSNESS tiresome, just as it was great for our kindred sisters and brothers back in the Sixties who were sick of their parents lecturing them (Nowadays it's our kids that sound like our dopey tight-[censored] parents--how did we let that happen?). There's no relevancy here, no addressing of pressing social issues--it's just mindless incorrect stupid fun. Buy it and hide it before the young'uns get around to burning it. Watch it while half-listening for the sound of jack boots on the front porch.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you love Peter Sellers, add a star May 31, 2005
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?
