Edwards employs many different aspects of comedy, including slapstick, to make this gender comedy a high point in 80s cinema. Andrews is great, but special mention should be made of Preston and Warren's supporting roles, who really "make" the film in many ways. Warren's sendup of gals like Jean Harlow cant be missed. The private investigator particularly had me in stitches also, but I was unfamiliar with the actor.
Loveley comedy dealing three possibly controversial issues: homosexuality, genre equality and finally fighting to achieve your dreams. The humour is quite mild, not at all offensive. I adored the score, the songs and the music numbers. Julie Andrews is gorgeously funny, once again in a charming but more complete role. Its length could´ve been reduced. All in all, shiningly magnificent classic and feel-good story.
