  1. Maudy Puteri Agusdina's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    CAN'T HELP IT to love it. Funny scriptwriting really help to make everything seems enjoyable. At first, Mansfield seems forced and more like Monroe's understudy but as the film goes on, she becomes more naturally well-acted and even give some very funny moments. Just like how i easily love Gentleman Prefer or Some Like It Hot, this one is very entertaining, a cute romcom with many laughs!

  2. Matt Reddick's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Ewell might be my least favorite comic actor... I came for the Maynsfield but stayed for the Tex Avery-esque O'Brien performance.

  3. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

  4. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    You can really see the influence of Tashlin's previous work in cartoons. Great stuff.

  5. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    "Ask my agent"... With Gene VINCENT, Fats DOMINO, Little RICHARD, etc ...

  6. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    An unbelievably insipid film. Stay far away

  7. El Biffo's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    There's so much to love in this very cheesy rock n roll comedy by Tashlin. Sure, the acting is bad, especially Edmond O'Brien as the gangster, but there is so much great cinema here. The scene where the milkman's milk bottle explodes when Mansfield walks by, spontaneously ejaculating its contents is classic. The performances by rock n roll's greatest pioneers (Some of them appear to be so tweaked out on benzedrine

  9. ‏ㅤ's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Little Richard, Fats Domino, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and The Platters are easy on the eyes and ears. I especially appreciate the influence on John Waters' Female Trouble and David Lynch's Mulholland Drive.

  10. José Neves's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Cinematography by Leon Shamroy.

  11. Mary Anne Magajes's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    MUSICALIZATION OF JAYNE MANSFIELD.

  12. Babe Rimbaud's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

  13. courtney t.'s rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Really fun movie, love the music. Jayne Mansfield's best.

  14. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    A little underwhelming after all the promise. Oh well, not everything can be Artists and Models.

  15. Eleni Ashton's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Those 90° turns, dayum Jayne!

  16. Scumbalina's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    So over the top. Mansfield is insane. I'm convinced she was a method actress.

  17. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Rock and toll, tits, satire, beautiful production design, clever innuendos, and big old tits! What else do you want from a flick on a Sunday afternoon?

  18. heather mcdonald's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    come for the music, stay for the 50's anthropology lesson. (so bizarre at moments that it borders on surrealism)

  19. Aaken's rating of the film The Girl Can't Help It

    Garish, over the top, and great fun! O'Brien is the has-been gangster who wants to be back on the scene, Ewell, the has-been alcoholic agent and Mansfield, the über bombshell who will be turned into a superstar, whatever the tricks and cost - and despite her seemingly lack of talent. Filled with great musical acts of the era. Highly enjoyable for its cartoon-like spirit.
