Critic Reviews of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"New YorkerJanuary 25, 2016
Howard Hawks adds sly sexual insinuation to the blatantly sexual antics of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in this scintillating 1953 adaptation of the stage musical based on Anita Loos's novel.TIME MagazineJanuary 26, 2011
For all the three-dimensional attractions of its two leading ladies, this is a rather flat cinemusical.Time OutAugust 04, 2010
You won't find a more elegant take on '50s va-va-voom vulgarity or a more joyous paean to the cheesecake self-empowerment of two little girls from Little Rock.Village VoiceAugust 03, 2010
There's more warmth in [Russell's] fondly bemused looks at Monroe, whose friendship is a front-row ticket to the best show in town.Time OutFebruary 26, 2010
If camp comedy capering (don't call it a social satire!) isn't your thing, it's worth the ticket to see Monroe's iconic and flawlessly choreographed performance of Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend (TM): a perfect four minutes of film.VarietyMay 13, 2008
A strong play to the sophisticated dialog and situations is given by Howard Hawks' direction and he maintains the racy air that brings the musical off excellently at a pace that helps cloak the fact that it's rather lightweight, but sexy, stuff.Common Sense MediaJuly 26, 2014
Classic musical romp with dated premise is silly fun.Antagony & EcstasyAugust 01, 2012
An unusually perfect marriage of star, scenario, dialogue, director, and music.EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 17, 2012
Howard Hawks' joyous musical comedy of 1953 is the film that catapulted Marilyn Monroe to major stardom and iconic status as sex symbol.Filmcritic.comAugust 05, 2010
There is not one single moment when these characters, or this rightful classic, wear out their welcome.Slant MagazineAugust 01, 2010
If there's a single film that could shatter Laura Mulvey's theory of the "male gaze" it's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.Times (UK)February 26, 2010
Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell melt the screen as the two little girls from Little Rock seeking Mr Right (or at least Mr Right(TM)s bank account). It(TM)s enjoyable, escapist fluff, with a killer finale.
