Very enjoyable but also a bit goofy--and not in a good way.

This is a nice romantic comedy starring Brigitte Bardot. She did a great job and was simply gorgeous. However, it is far from a great film--and one for which you have to make some allowances due to poor direction and an occasionally goofy script. Brigitte plays a lady in her early twenties whose father is in involved with shady illegal business. However, she is oblivious and thinks he's rich from a legitimate shipping business. When the father gets in trouble with the law, he asks his friend Clery to the small college where Brigitte is enrolled and bring her to him in Switzerland. The father figures that if the girl isn't brought to him quickly, the police will take her in custody and try to use her as leverage. In fact, shortly after Clery arrives, the police DO show up as well and the two barely make their escape. The rest of the film concerns Clery and Brigette hiding out from the law. And how did he get the girl to agree to hide? He told her that her father is being pursued by spied who are dressed like policemen! But having this radiant young woman with him causes a lot of problems--with Clery's fiancée, because Brigitte is a bit of a klutz and problems follow her and because the police are bound to show up sooner or later. This film has many enjoyable and cute moments. Brigitte is simply wonderful and it's hard to dislike her--even when she manages to burn down Clery's apartment! She's just so cute and sweet and likable. This is THE reason I liked the film. Plus, SOME of the plot is very good. But, sadly, the film also has a lot of problems. The biggest one is that the film plays, at times, like a Three Stooges film--with 'funny' sound effects and the worst over-acting I have ever seen Mischa Auer do (it was simply embarrassing). A romantic comedy should be funny, but not like this! In addition, there seemed to be a lot of padding--singing and dancing that often distract from the nice relationship that was blooming between Brigitte and Clery--it was very sweet. As a result, it's very watchable but you can't help thinking that it could have been better if the director hadn't been an idiot and had exercised some restraint.

Delightful and Naive Entertainment

In Paris, when the owner of the nightclub Mississippi in Pigalle Paul Latour (Bernard Lancret) is wanted by the police accused of distribution of forged dollars in his club, he asks his protégée and lead attraction of Mississippi Jean Clery (Jean Bretonniére) to protect his beloved daughter Brigitte (Brigitte Bardot). Jean is engaged of the psychoanalyst Lily (Françoise Fabian) and brings the wild and rebel Brigitte from her conservative boarding school to his fancy apartment while Paul travels to Lausanne to meet a friend to clear his name. While waiting for the return of Paul, Brigitte turns Paul's life upside down and they fall in love for each other. But the Parisian police and the counterfeit ring are chasing Brigitte, but Jean, his butler Jerome (Raymond Bussiéres) and his friends protect the girl. "Cette Sacrée Gamine" is a delightful and naive entertaining. The predictable story is silly, uses many gags, but is supported by the adorable twenty-two year old Brigitte Bardot. This movie works first because of the beauty and charm of BB and Raymond Bussiéres is responsible for the funniest moments. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "Garota Levada" ("Naughty Girl")

Enjoyable comedy with Bardot in fine foxy form

Smooth nightclub singer Jean Clery (a solid and affable performance by Jean Bretonniere) has to take care of lovely and precocious schoolgirl Brigitte Latour (exuberantly played with tremendous verve and sexiness by Brigitte Bardot) after Brigitte's father gets in trouble with the police for possible forgery. Naturally, Brigitte turns Jean's life topsy turvy. Director Michel Boisrond, who also co-wrote the blithely inane script with Roger Vadim, relates the wacky story at a constant snappy pace, stages the slapstick set pieces with considerable skill and flair, and maintains a likable lightweight tone throughout. Of course, Bardot's delectable'n'delightful effervescent presence keeps things bubbling along; her boundless vivacity and striking pulchritude are a total treat to watch. Mischa Auer has a funny bit as a bumbling dance choreographer. Raymond Bussieres easily cops the top acting honors with his excellent and engaging portrayal of Jean's loyal befuddled butler Jerome. The song and dance numbers are a lot of merry fun. Moreover, a sassy sharp-tongued parrot provides some of the film's best and biggest belly laughs. Kudos are also in order for Joseph C. Brun's vibrant widescreen cinematography and the infectiously jaunty score by Henri Colli, Rene Denoncin, and Hubert Rostaing. A pleasant and amusing romp.
