A fun, light... headed comedy!
10 October 2010 | by island1932See all my reviews

This goofy movie is a joy to watch every time it pops up on television. Too bad it has not been released on DVD. The film is not meant to be taken seriously and to provoke deep thought discussions. It is meant to simply entertain and put a smile on our faces. The actors are having so much fun and it shows. The chemistry between Marcello Mastroianni and the absolutely stunningly gorgeous Sophia Loren (my reason for giving this movie a 10) is wonderful... and yes, funny. The silly songs are bubbly and the score music light. I wonder if ever there was a soundtrack released for "Gun Moll". Just make sure to watch the original Italian version please with the actual voices of all actors and not some dubbed version mentioned in the previews review.
