Review by Cindy (posted on 31-May-2005)

This is, without a doubt, one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Julie Andrews as Millie catches every single woman's thoughts and worries. I can't watch this movie enough. Carol Channing is totally delightful. In fact, the whole movie is totally delightful.
