Movie Info

David Niven is Alex, a scholar who has won the Nobel Prize for developing a universal language. The U.S. State Department has decided to honor him with a statue, to be displayed in London's Grosvenor Square. The commission for the project went to Alex's wife Rhonda (Virna Lisi), who has designed a statue that is completely nude, without even a fig leaf. Husband Alex sees that is it a perfect replica of himself, except for the part usually covered by fig leaves. He accuses his wife of using one of her lovers as a model and begins a hilarious search for the original. Robert Vaughn has some good lines as the American Ambassador, discussing the couple's controversy with the President.

Critic Reviews for The Statue

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

I suppose a funny movie might have been made of this material. No, on second thought, I suppose not.

April 29, 2018 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

This is another in a series of adolescent adult comedies that indicates not that the movie industry has come of age but has simply grown tall enough to scribble on latrine walls.
