Critic Reviews for Pretty Maids All in a Row

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (1)

The movie itself is, finally, embarrassing. It's embarrassing because Vadim's personal hang-ups don't fit the nature of his material, and so he tries to bend things.

Gathering together the distinguished selection of Hudson, Dickinson, and Savalas for a story so deliciously eccentric is perhaps its greatest success.

August 30, 2020 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Pretty Maids All in a Row simply shares the ineffable vulgarity it portrays.

Were you to take out the sex and nudity, it would be nothing but an incomprehensible load of silliness.

January 18, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

I won't say that Pretty Maids All in a Row is a good film by any traditional measure. It is, however, a genuine curio.

October 25, 2010 | Full Review…

A scalding satire and, all things considered, a remarkably fecund work

Audience Reviews for Pretty Maids All in a Row

Fun as a view to the tenor of the times it was made with a VERY 70's vibe, although no one says "let's rap" fortunately, that's it major attraction.

Did you know Star Trek's Gene Roddenberry wrote and produced a nudity filled slasher film? Neither did I, and it's not great, but boy is it filled with hot 70's tail! Also Rock Hudson's mustache is bitchin.
