Leslie Caron stars as a young foundling reared by two veteran Parisian courtesans to be the mistress of a wealthy young gentleman. But Gigi (Caron--An American in Paris, Daddy Long Legs) shocks everyone when, despite the best efforts of her mentors to teach the importance of champagne, jewels and independence, the irrepressible girl falls in love with the man for whom she is intended. Maurice Chevalier, Louis Jordan and Hermione Gingold also star in this blockbuster Lerner and Lowe musical.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: It may not be one of Vincente Minnelli's best, but the charming and flawlessly acted Gigi still offers enough visual and musical treats to satisfy.

Common Sense Says
Charming, pretty 1950s musical with dated gender roles.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, scratch below the pretty surface of this iconic 1950s musical and some dated and slightly racy themes appear: about how important it is to make your man happy and whether it's better to be a wife or a mistress. Still, tweens and teens who give it a try will be entranced by the splendidness and charm of it all, and will likely put such plot points within the film's historical context. There's no swearing or nudity, and any drinking and smoking is done so socially.
