Fun, glam, campy movies

I'm trying to think of comedies that are a little glamorous and a little ridiculous. They don't need to be "good movies" but they should be fun. Something along the lines of

Clue Troop Beverly Hills Death Becomes Her Maid To Order Overboard Outrageous Fortune

What are some others I should add to my list?

I did enjoy [italic]the Wold of Henry Orient[/italic], largely for 60s NYC, but also for Paula Prentiss. Years later, Angela Lansbury said she never felt glamorous until some night presenting at the Oscars, but I thought she looked pretty glam here at their holiday party.

Lucy's Mame. Horrible singing, but the sets and costumes PLUS Bea Arthur.

by Anonymousreply 53May 28, 2024 2:20 PM

Let’s Kill Uncle and Picture Mommy Dead (with campy Zsa Zsa Gabor). Two staples of weekend afternoon movies, both released in 1966. Ridiculous, fun, and completely nutty.

Village of the Giants, from 1965, is even more ridiculous, with teenagers eating a mysterious goop that turns them into naked giants. Tommy Kirk, Beau Bridges, Johnny Crawford, Ron Howard, Toni Basil...

OP here - thank you for your lovely suggestions so far; I've added many titles to my queue! Last night I watched Earth Girls Are Easy which was described in a review as "more of an extended music video than a movie" and it was everything I was looking for thanks to the comedic stylings of co-writer and costar Julie Brown. There was a great moment where Geena Davis is trashing the apartment she shares with her cheating fiance and she throws an album into the fireplace. That album? Who's That Girl by Madonna!! That must've been all Julie!
