TV personality Robert Danvers, an exceedingly vain rotter, seduces young women daily, never staying long with one. He meets his match in Marion, an American, 19, who's available but refuses any romantic illusions. At first, her candor and cynicism put him off, but after he witnesses her breaking up with her rocker boyfriend, he's attracted to her and invites her on an idyllic two-week trip to France. Slowly, she pokes holes in his artifice and he comes to care for her. When they return to London, with the press thinking they're married, they come to a cross-roads: go back to their old lives, marry each other, or invent a new, open relationship.

THERE'S A GIRL IN MY SOUP (1970) when shown in Australian cinemas on its first theatrical release from 24th June 1971, at the request of the Australian Film Censorship Board, the movie had all nudity eliminated. To obtain the classification rating of (SOA) SUITABLE ONLY FOR ADULTS - the Australian Film Censorship Board ordered the elimination of "all shots of female nudity of Goldie Hawn (Marion) 37:19 to 37:55 and Gabrielle Drake (Julia Halforde-Smythe) 43:08 to 44:31" i.e. Australia Film Censorship Board insisted that the brief female nudity is never seen by Australians.
- - Of course all the legislative rules about not showing female nudity were applied when THERE'S A GIRL IN MY SOUP (1970) was rated by the Australian Film Censorship Board as (SOA) SUITABLE ONLY FOR ADULTS - CHILDREN UNDER 16 NOT ADMITTED, however since 15th November 1971 the movie became classified as 'M' for Mature Audiences.
- - To comply with legislation, the following two lines of dialogue from 25:15 to 25:24 were also eliminated:- Peter Sellers: "What was it? Drink or drugs?" Goldie Hawn: "Who cares."
- - The bedroom the morning after, Goldie Hawn (Marion) gets out of bed naked 37:19 to 37:55 with brief views of her bare bum, and walks to obtain a dressing gown, which she puts on.
- - Later when Goldie Hawn (Marion) walks into the bedroom and throws a bucket of water over Nicky Henson (Jimmy) and Gabrielle Drake (Julia Halforde-Smythe), Gabrielle Drake (Julia Halforde-Smythe) from 43:08 to 44:31 shows her breasts and her bare bum.
I like Peter Sellers, most of the time. I had never seen him portray an upper-class Brit until this movie. He pulls it off pretty well, although you see bits of Inspector Clouseau in the mix. It doesn't get interesting until Goldie Hawn arrives.
I never expected the youthful Hawn to deliver such a solid performance. Her timing was great and her expressions were priceless. The way she alternately shoots Sellers lecherous character down and seduces him is beautiful to watch. Verbal sparring like I've seldom seen from a movie of that era.
The last thirty minutes of the movie DOES fall flat. It is worth the let down just to see the first sixty. Hawn is nude for a few glorious seconds early on. Enjoy it...
