I hated nearly everything about this movie. I normally hate Carol Channing but the fact that Carol Channing is my favorite part goes to show just how much I disliked the movie as a whole. Would have been monumentally improved if half the characters were performed in drag.
There's quite a bit I didn't like (the ending, some of the sillier -¬ in a good way-parts) . But I laughed a lot, and enjoyed the main cast. It's also a film I think you can decide whether or not you'd like it by just reading the synopsis and cast list.
Generally zippy pastiche-piffle that gets by on sheer energy and dopey charm. All a bit of a sugar rush really but a pleasant diversion with peppy performances and a good feel for a re-imagined period whipping-up the paper-thin plot into a whirling dervish of silly fun. Probably the closest Aunt Edna got to a sixties loosening of her corset without flopping-out entirely at Woodstock.
