Marlo Manners is enjoying her honeymoon with Sir Michael Barrington, husband number 6. As luck would have it, an international conference is taking place in the same hotel and the Russian delegate (one of Marlo's former husbands) is threatening to derail the negotiations unless he can have one more fling with his ex. Adding to the complications is a tape Marlo has made detailing all of her affairs and scandals, which her manager is desperately trying (and failing) to destroy. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

15 September 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was looking over the comments here concerning this movie and I have to agree with Planet 9 and others concerning Sextette. I was not very knowledgeable about Mae when I saw this movie. I did not know anything about her age, but I was ASTONISHED when I found out! I thought she was much younger in this film, and I do mean MUCH younger. Then I thought (especially after reading the comments here) what the hell does it matter about someone's age??? What difference does that make??? If someone is an older person that just means they have lived longer than a younger person. Make no mistake - we ALL get older (if we are lucky) but we are still the same person. I say HOORAY for Mae!!! She was wonderful in Sextette - so fun and good-natured. She was so witty and neat too!

This movie made me decide to watch her old movies and I was delightfully surprised at just how cool this remarkable woman was!!! Now I know what a legend means!!! What a super, SUPER star!!!! Mae West was the ultimate, cool, sexy blonde and she was absolutely a delight in Sextette!!! This movie is pure camp and after I watched her older movies I realized she was not only the GREATEST sex symbol in the history of movies-she was also the Queen of Camp!!! As Tony Curtis said in Sextette, `what a woman!' There will NEVER, EVER be anyone like her again.

It is truly sickening to see the so-called, self-professed `critics' here attack Mae because (and ONLY because) of her age in this film! She should be given the proper credit she richly deserved for delivering a truly MAGICAL performance. This movie has been attacked for one reason and one reason only-and that is age prejudice. What are these party poopers doing commenting on this movie and more importantly - WHY did they even watch it in the first place????

A person's comments about something reveals something about that person. When you see that a person is attacking another person directly and personally, well that reveals something very wrong with the attacker. I think that shows what is wrong with this country when a person is attacked because of their age (or any other reason for that matter)!!!

I never read such ridiculous crap before. Someone said Mae was walking with a hidden `walking cane' and all kinds of other stupid stuff. Then there were the comments about `soft focus' lenses and stuff like that. That is standard procedure in movies for women. Look at MTV. Do you think that those singers you love are not `soft focused' and a LOT more???? They are even digitally made to look younger now! Ha!

I did a lot of research and found out that most ALL the negative `fantasies' about Mae West commented on here were completely false and pathetic! If you people who have to attack others do not have anything to occupy your time, that is YOUR problem-stop attacking others that you know nothing about! This movie does NOT deserve the ruthless attacks it has received because of age-prejudiced imbeciles who have no life of their own. Remember this-what goes around, comes around and all the nasty idle comments you make to hurt someone else, is going to come back to you!!! You reap what you sow and a lot of the nasty "critics" here are going to really reap some harsh stuff!!!

Anyway, I really loved the movie; found it very unique and the reason for that was the EXTRAORDINARY, true LEGEND-the GREAT MAE WEST!!! She will NEVER-EVER BE EQUALED!!! Also one other fact-Mae West is the ONLY movie star in HISTORY to have her name in the dictionary-LOOK IT UP!!! `What a woman' for sure!!!
