Penelope Reviews:

This movie is highly underrated. I have heard of how "Penelope" was a flop from another sources. I saw it on TCM today as one of the birthday tributes to Natalie Wood. To my surprise, I found this movie highly entertaining. The dialogue was witty and funny. Love the humor. This is one of the comedic greatest of Natalie Wood! Dick Shawn, Peter Falk, and Ian Bannen, who played her analyst, a police detective, and her husband respectively, did a wonderful job as the three boys who fell in love with Penelope. A very funny film, brilliant, brilliant film! I was not very fond of 60's humor, but I still found this movie hilarious. Whether you are a fanatic of 60's comedies or not, I assure that you will play it as much as I do.


This weren't as terrible as some folks say. There's three reasons to watch it: (3) There is now some funny and witty material here, (2) the photography is gorgeous--both the interior shots and the glamorous locales of mid-1960's Fresh York, and (1) Natalie is stunningly beautiful.


I wouldn't call it a classic, but PENELOPE is definitely a fun method to spend an afternoon. Natalie Wood is superb and quite funny in the game role, and she has an nice wardrobe. Dick Shawn and Peter Falk (practicing for COLUMBO?) deliever powerful helping performances as a psychiatrist and a police lieutenant, respectively. Unfortunately, Ian Bannen lacks charisma, making it difficult to trust that "Penelope" would select his hero over each another boy in NYC. With its bright, bold colors and criminal exploits, PENELOPE plays like an extended episode of the "Batman" TV series. In fact, the movie contains a reference to Batman. Definitely a must-see for Natalie Wood fans.
