Synopsis
In this big-budget adaptation of Terry Southern's satiric sex farce (the sort of project that could get an immediate green light in the late 1960's and at practically no other time before or since), Ewa Aulin is Candy, a sweet young woman who doesn't seem entirely aware of the powerful sexual desire she brings out in men. While her father (John Astin) and mother (Elsa Martinelli) try to keep Candy in line, the task proves to be all but impossible, as she's seduced by a remarkable variety of men in her journeys, including a booze-addled poet (Richard Burton), a mystical guru who lives on a truck (Marlon Brando), a gardener from Mexico (Ringo Starr), a fanatical military man who refuses to leave his plane (Walter Matthau), a pair of uncomfortably high-strung doctors (John Huston and James Coburn) and even her own uncle (Astin, again). The Byrds and Steppenwolf contributed songs to the soundtrack; the screenplay was written by Buck Henry. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

well, this movie is certainly fun and at times funny, and it succeeds in being a silly, sexy, psychedelic soire, but i have to say that it was a little bit long and tiresome for this avid movie watcher. and though absurdity serves an important role in cinema, it's best served in small portions, in my opinion, which this film does not do. it is worth a viewing, though, if you want to see all the great names in this film acting in completely crazy roles. some of the scenes are wonderfully bizarre, the music is great, and charles aznavour is pleasure to look at. i give this film a 5 out of ten. my thumb is halfway up.

this will be the weirdest movie you ever see..with a cast list that read's like a who's who of great actors. brando. burton. coburn. huston. matthau. astin. plus a wide array of other stars. miss teen sweden 1965 ewa aulin. singer charles aznavour. beatle ringo starr. boxer sugar ray robinson. rolling stone groupie extradinaire anita pallenberg (song angie is about her). actor christian marquand (as the director. actor/comic buck henry (as the screenwriter). now with those names.. you'd except a great flick.. well.. sorry.. what you have is a pseudo psychedelic/sex in it's place. following the adventures of miss candy (ewa aulin). is not a completely bad thing.. but without much of any type of plot.. the movie fumbles around with the names i just mentioned above. what could of been a very sexy movie about the search for one's identity ends up a psycho mess of parts of a good movie.. well.. all's not lost.. burton and brando are very funny in there parts.. and miss aulin.. is great as the naive candy.
