I had a girl like that once... didn't work out, there is a name for that kind of behavior: borderline syndrom. It was kinda déja-vu for me, only different hairstyle :-) but the movie was nice and for 1961 even better. 7/10 is my rating, but mostly because hannibal a-team smith was acting like he really was in love with audrey, but then again, who isn't.
One of the best....there are elements in "Holly" of being lost, then found through another-the RIGHT other...we can all identify with if youve lived long enough-and the song she insisted on singing herself; Moonriver, so sweetly sung ...a gem.
*incomplete* (All of my reviews are.)

Pretty good directing. Didn't like Holly. Get a job, bum!

Holly's philosophy: "Well, I know I just consumed a whole bottle of whiskey, but it doesn't matter- I'm marrying a man with lots of money! Whee. *angst* Now where's my plastic tiarra?"
Dodgeball was hilarious. Incredibly hilarious. The end was gayly unfunny and happy though, I thought the original ending would have suited it better. It would have fit right in with the part when the sign crushes their coach.

Breakfast at Tiffany's was really good, especially Hepburn's character. Her development was one of the best I've seen in a movie since A Streetcar Named Desire. It was strange though because Paul, the main character, seemed not to have very much of a character at all. I guess that's what gets it the 9 for now. See it for Audrey Hepburn. She's amazing in it. I'd sell her my third kidney if she was still alive.

I am going to read the book as soon as I get the chance because this was such a wonderful story. Sayuri's obsession with The Chairman was alittle annoying. I would have choosen scarface over him but to each their own.
Breakfast at Tiffany's: Not my favorite Audrey Hepburn film, but like all her films worth seeing. I felt comfortable watching this story, carried along for the ride. I wasn't expecting anything at all I was just drifting along caught up in the story and sad to see it end.

My Fair Lady: I thought this was an interesting movie. I love experiments in social hierarchy. It intrigued me in the same way that Jane Austin does.
:rolleyes: this is a behind the scene glimpse of NY glamour in the 1960's. superb! :up:
First off, I have to say that Audrey Hepburn is one of the most beautiful people on screen or off. It's a more sophisticated, classical type of beauty. I wouldn't use the word hot to describe her, that would be somewhat an insult. Jessica Simpson is hot, a sleazy kind of slutty (she really isn't) appearance. Hepburn is someone you would like to have conversations with and take home to your parents to meet.

I bought this for my sis knowing it was a chic flic, not having too high of expectations. (There's some irony in that I watched Blood Diamond before this.) I was surprised at the amount of depth the story had, however. It's witty, sad, humorous, fun, and has a good message. Some of the sexual jokes are ahead of their time.

Hepburn plays Holly, a socialite whose goal is to marry an older rich man. George Peppard is Paul, a writer who hasn't had a book published in years. To earn money, he has sex (assumed) with a wealthy older woman. Paul meets Holly moving in to his new apartment. The two quickly start a friendship and then it progresses into something more, especially for Paul. Holly has two different personalities. She is a phony when she is with wealthy people, but affable and true when she's with Paul. Her desire to marry a rich man infuriates Paul, who cannot believe how shallow she is. Will they ever be more than friends? That's for you to find out.

While I really liked watching Paul and Holly's relationship develop, there was one character, or caricature, who really bothered me. The American who played the asian landlord is so stereotypical, completely unbelievable, and not funny.

As far as romantic comedies go, I'm impressed. This and Roman Holiday (another film with Hepburn) are among my favorites. Even if you're a guy, you can still enjoy Breakfast at Tiffany's. FYI, I have the poster of Audrey from this film.

What a delightful film. Wonderfully rich dialogue, great acting, and plenty of humor and tension. They don't make films like this one these days. Happened on this flick by accident surfing through the channels yesterday. Audrey Hepburn was really good in this film. She is so cute! George Peppard wasn't too shabby either on all counts. Great film. Based on the Truman Capote novella by the same name.

Holly is a mixed up girl; and she's mixed up in just about everything. Holly's goals and intentions are shallow; however, she makes her decisions with the best intentions. Paul is an aspiring writer who moves upstairs from Holly. His writing profession has taken a back seat to his more profitable profession, which is acting as a gigolo to a wealthy woman. Holly and Paul playfully interact on their two shallow ambitions until they deeply fall in love. Despite being, "in love," Holly feels she must marry a rich man, which Paul is not.

"Don't be angry, you dear little man. I won't do it again."

Blake Edwards, director of The Pink Panther, The Return of the Pink Panther, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, Revenge of the Pink Panther, Trail of the Pink Panther, Curse of the Pink Panther, Blind Date, Skin Deep, and Son of the Pink Panther, delivers Breakfast at Tiffany's. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a film that is carried by brilliant character interactions and dialogue. Holly was not a character I particularly "liked"; however, I enjoyed everything line that came out of her mouth. Audrey Hepburn was brilliant in her role, and George Peppard (John "Hannibal" Smith from the 'A' Team) delivers a surprisingly stunning performance.

"Do you think she's deeply and importantly talented?"
"No; amusingly and superficially talented."

The "mean reds" conversation, the "gruesome Thursday" reference, the waking up the Asian landlord scenes, the Sing Sing job, the gigolo conversation, the Mexico land conversation, the house present, the party scenes, the "yak feeding" reference, the "timber" scene, Mr. Golightly's surprise appearance, the bus terminal scene, the candy store reference, the rats reference, the shopping at Tiffany's with $10 scene, the stealing of the masks, the narcotics bust, the releasing of the cat, and the final scene/revelation were amongst the better portions of the film.

"Do they still really have prizes in Cracker Jack boxes?"

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a brilliant film. The dialogue is stupendous and the interactions are intriguing and abstract. The topics of conversation jump all over place. The characters partake in several activities that the viewer may not anticipate. The film is actually quit surprising, refreshing, and entertaining. I strongly recommend this picture to anyone who has not seen it.

"She's a phony, but she's a real phony."
