Auntie Mame

"Excellent"

Auntie Mame Review


Think of it as the flipside of Breakfast at Tiffany's: Here's what happens when a brassy city-girl socialite winds up with an orphaned nephew in her care and marries a southern plantation owner. Hilarity ensues as cultures clash galore. Set during the Great Depression, Auntie Mame is a very funny and touching story, even if it rambles endlessly, clocking in at nearly 2 1/2 hours long.
