  1. Ethan's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    I'm not big on musicals but Howard Hawks just had the ability to make entertaining films and this one is no exception featuring the incredibly beautiful and badass Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell.

  2. Pedro Zambujo's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    though Marilyn has the scene of her life, my eyes followed Jane Russell over everything else in here.

  3. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Howard Hawks manages to create an enchanting and extravagant musical filled with plenty of glitz and glam. Both Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe are absolutely radiant in this film, but what really surprised me was there comedic chops! These two are hilarious together and have amazing chemistry. This is a fun enough musical filled with some great choreography and some iconic tunes!

    L'art, le doigté, la magie de Hawks dans une "musicale" comédie fort entraînante... www.cinefiches.com

  6. rllr's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Quite a perfect direction, but what of the story?! I had the impression all the porn scenes were later on replaced by musical numbers. I can imagine feminists would go completely berserk over this one!

  7. truffraud's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    a well-directed cinematic achievement; russell and monroe made the most of their roles. the male gaze is laid on thick, so you're likely to miss moments of actorly skill if you're busy ogling.

  15. Kamran's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    An affable performance piece with the innocence of Marilyn Monroe and the wit of Howard Hawks. 76/100 - Very Good

  16. SpacePirate's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Not my fav Hawks, yet still immensely entertaining. this is sort of "by the numbers" 50s Hollywood. Some nice musical numbers and the, at times, great use of Technicolor make this one worth a look. 3.5 stars

  17. msmichel's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Classic musical from Hawks that plays to the best strengths of both its stars; Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. The story of a gold digger and her best friend is well told with memorable characterizations and song score. Is there anything more iconic in Monroe legend then her performance of 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend' in that sublime pink gown? Mind you it's Russell who has the naughty lines.

  18. SiIencio's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Relentlessly funny & witty Hawks' musical with Monroe & Russell as a perfect one-two punch satirising 50s misogynistic stereotypes whilst showing women as the ones genuinely calling the shots in a world controlled by men. Marilyn is at the top of her game irradiating "animal magnetism" as the glamorous bimbo along with the cerebral eloquent Russell for a perfect balance. Iconic "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend".

  20. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    One of the great double acts. Jane and Marilyn's comic timing is immaculate. Great songs and a good supporting cast keep the fun coming.

  21. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Beautiful, racy, & utterly charming, Hawks' musical is a lightweight affair that adheres to & subverts the roles of women in the 50's. Monroe is at the peak of her powers here, as the blonde who knows when to play dumb. The plot may amble along on a boat, but the sheer entertainment value is undeniable no matter if it ends w/ a courtroom musical number & double-wedding. It's simple & delightful cinematic confection.

  22. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    La mia avversione per il musical un pò mi condiziona, ma comunque ha troppi momenti che sono entrati nella storia del cinema e le due interpreti sono fantastiche per carisma e fascino.Invecchiato un pò male(i set da studio sono fin troppo evidenti),riesce a divertire e a non essere troppo pesante per la versatilità dei protagonisti. Non è al Marylin di Wilder, ma è pur sempre un'icona indelebile.

  23. Arisu's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    suprisingly great! i like women friendship in this movie. songs are very good. not 5 stars because i don't like that detective guy and...*spoiler* males are idiots here, i like that A LOT

  24. Ofla's rating of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Beautiful scenarios and colors, terrible topic, sexist, outdated and shallow. I do love Marilyn for the person she was behind the cameras, not for what Hollywood made her ''look like''.
