Critics reviews

The joys of the film have nothing to do with narrative. It’s all about how Mae West devours every man who gets within ten feet of her; the way her eyes scan them head to toe like she’s sizing up a roast right out of the oven; the way she refuses to break eye contact even when making the most embarrassing lascivious comments, her mouth often slightly upturned to flash a few ravenous pearly whites.
