  1. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

  2. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    (2) The big problem with The Knack… and How to Get It is that rape really isn’t funny. The film has a lot of good stuff in it, particularly the four main cast members, but the final section where the subject of rape is treated with such triviality, such flippancy, as comedy, and the hoary old cliché of rape being every woman’s fantasy is trotted out, makes the humour just feel unpleasant and impossible to enjoy.

  5. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    It's not A Hard Day's Night, but still great.

    "In didactic terms I don't think that it succeeds but I don't know that it's supposed to succeed." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2014/12/episode-41-first-richard-lester-episode.html

  7. lndah's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    Michael Crawford cuteness confirmed.

  8. Terri Wise's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    Hard to ignore the very offensive parts.

  9. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    Zany, dated, uneven, self-indulgent, derivative, and usually in the right ways.

  10. Jake Mulligan's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    An extremely stylish play adaptation, a perfect sandwich filler between "Hard Day's Night" and "Help!"

  11. Joseph Judge's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    This really sort of collapses entirely once it reaches the 'rape rape rape rape rape' parts, doesn't it.

  12. Guillermo Padilla's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    Esta pelicula inglesa esta claramente influenciada por la Nueva Ola Francesa, nos recuerda a Truffaut, libre y con una narrativa muy peculiar, tiene algunos momentos...

  13. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    Lester's post-Truffaut take on the battle of the sexes builds on the foundation of Jules and Jim, though surpasses that particular film on every level, right down to its casual misogyny. Its daydream of swinging London, full of interludes, rendezvous and surreal vignettes (suggestive in their playful formalism of A Hard Day's Night), is still one of the most extraordinary presentations of the city on film.

  14. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Knack ...and How to Get It

    Lively and extravagant sexual satire. Richard Lester's trademark blend of cinematic anarchism, surrealistic sketches and slap-stick comedy come perfectly in the backdrop of the swinging sixties London and its hedonistic inhabitants: mods and rockers coexisting with hostile hordes of middle-aged squares.
