Rate this:
Cool and sophisticated Tolen has a monopoly on womanizing, with a long line of conquests to prove it, while the naive and awkward Colin desperately wants a piece of it. But when Colin falls for an innocent country girl, it's not long before the self-assured Tolen moves in for the kill. Is all fair in love and war, or can Colin gets the knack and beat Tolen at his own game?

Attention, All You Carnally-Curious Viewers! - If it's the "knack" you crave and you seriously wanna know "how to get it" - Then steer clear of this quirky, off-the-wall, 1965, comedy - 'Cause it's sure to leave your head spinning, as you find yourself even more clueless than you already are.

If nothing else - "The Knack" (directed by American film-maker, Richard Lester) is (movie-wise) historically significant in that it is sandwiched in between 2 of Lester's more notable pictures - "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!", which, of course, starred the Beatles.

Even though "The Knack" (which was set in London and filmed in b&w) is a pretty silly and scatterbrained tale about the lustful pursuit for sexual conquests - It certainly did have its interesting and entertaining moments.

And, yes - With "The Knack" now being 52 years old - It is, indeed, dated - But still definitely worth a view. Yet - With that said - I do caution you, that its decidedly-eccentric brand of humour isn't gonna appeal to everyone.
