    "The Girl Getters" is kind of a hackneyed tale of disenchanted youth, but it benefits greatly from its' on-location shooting and using real people. The actors manage to invest their characters with energy and veracity, including a very young David Hemmings.

    This is your standard 60s, alienated British youth pic, a genre that seemed to come in with the angry young men of the late 50s and stuck around through the Beatles era. I like the atmosphere of an upscale English seaside resort that still manages to be a bit seedy, but that's about it. It's hard to sympathize with the main character, a summer gigolo named "Tink" Taylor, who falls in love with a woman who ends up rejecting him because, as written by Peter Draper and played by Oliver Reed, Tink is the kind of utter jerk who feels superior to everyone around him, be they rich people, fellow townies, working people, and of course the women he picks up and discards. And since you don't like the guy you feel not a shred of pity or compassion for him at the end. Indeed, you're kind of happy that the butthole finally got some payback, which I doubt was director Michael Winnner's intention. Basically, Michael Caine did the whole youthful ladies man thing better two years later in "Alfie." At least Caine's gigolo is a regular guy rather than a reverse snob. Give it a C.P.S. Did Oliver Reed ever play a character who wasn't at least 75% shitheel?
