What's New Pussycat?

This marks the first screenplay and on screen debut of Woody Allen and I never ever thought I would say this but he manages to be funnier than the late great Peter Sellers who seems to be sadly wasted in this early Sixties romp in the hay. Peter O'Toole star as a man with a problem, this being too many women in his life. While he wants to settle down with his fiance he simply can't seem to not end up in the arms and beds of other with the ladies, in earnest, dropping from the sky, in this case the lovely Ursula Andress. A bit nebulous in story at times and borrowing heavily from the skit style made famous by the likes of Benny Hill, WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT? still remains a fun and raunchy bit of fluff and must be seen by students of the Woody Allen school of neurosis.
