"Most background information on this movie seems to suggest it was strategically assembled by studio execs, as most movies have been and forever will be. Films made this way are not necessarily bad, they're just carefully engineered for mass appeal - sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Originally, PUSSYCAT was conceived as a starring vehicle for Warren Beatty. The title of the film is allegedly a reference to the way in which Beatty, a legendary man-slut, answers his phone... WHAT'S NEW PUSSYCAT is very, very '60s. Not just in terms of its hairstyles and cast, but its willful, pervasive silliness... Also in keeping with its '60s vein is the film's giddy but strangely uneasy obsession with sex... Like a fourteen year old boy, it has nothing to offer on the subject, and is terrified of an open discussion, but yet is completely incapable of thinking of anything else." www.everywoodyallenmovie.com
