Get yourself this dvd!!!,
This review is from: Get Yourself A College Girl (Remastered Edition) [DVD] (DVD-R)
Somehow, I missed this film during it's original theatrical run back in the 60's. I had in fact almost forgotten about it entirely until, first-I read about it back in the mid 80's in that fabulous book The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, and second-when I saw the faded and scratchy trailer on a Something Weird trailer compilation tape. Once I saw that trailer the movie quickly became one of my most wanted dvds. Well, my wish finally came true! And not only that, but Warner Archives' print looks pristine and virtually flawless-even the included trailer looks (somewhat) cleaned up! The acting in the movie is par for the course for this type of film-namely sophmoric-but what else would you expect from a 60's movie with a title like this? The(many) songs are indeed dated, but in a hilarious, almosy catchy sort of way. And the inclusion of the original version of 'The Girl From Impanema' was a totally unexpected but welcome treat.I think Mary Ann Mobley was one of the most adorable actresses of the 60's (I especially liked her in 'Girl Happy') and Chris Noel was great eye candy in every film she ever appeared in. For me. this is nostalgia heaven, and aptly reminds me of how much fun 'sex comedies' used to be back in the day without having to resort to showing bare(fake)boobs and butts or spewing profanity to get cheap laughs like movies do today. All in all, I'm glad I finally got this college girl!
