Three sentence movie reviews: Funny Face

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews

While there were some delightful moments (the beatnik dance scene, the fashion shoots, the song and dance by Hepburn/Kay Thompson) I spent most of the film being annoyed by the creepy May/December romance, and the fact that Audrey Hepburn does not have a funny face, she’s a female beauty icon.  Also, I hate when Fred Astaire sings and Audry Hepburn, while she does have her moments, has a lot of “eh” signing in this film.  I spent most of the movie waiting for Kay Thompson to reappear, because she was the triple threat of this particular motion picture.*

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

*Don’t get me wrong, Hepburn and Astaire are fabulous double threats.  They just aren’t the best singers.

    I absolutely adore this movie. Perhaps as I first watched it in my teens I didn’t even think twice about May-December. It does have such great songs!

    I used to love Audrey (she struggled with eating disorders for most of her life, so she was a bit of an icon for me) so I watched a lot of her films when I was in my early 20s. I couldn’t get through this one. I do love the beatnik dance scene, though. P.S. I don’t NOT love Audrey now; I just don’t think much about her anymore.
