movie: rinse and never repeat

Can someone explain to me the significance of Shampoo, or any rationale for this movie being considered noteworthy enough to be remembered more than five minutes after it opened in theaters? Well it did have two saving graces, Warren Beatty's ass (wow, he was good looking in '75), and Goldie Hawn was decent at the beginning of the film (she later slipped into the angry girlfriend routine that she perfected in Bird on a Wire blech), but on the whole I found it terrible. George's actions appear to have no motivation, and his desires change faster than his clients can rip off their panties. The last major shift of his made no sense at all, unless you make an argument that George is just imitating Norman because he has no desires of his own, so he now wants to have a family.

I just don't know. Please comment if you have any insight.

p.s. I guess a movie that has the quote "I want to suck this man's cock" can't be all bad. In my experience, I've enjoyed other movies that have that line, anyway ;-)

    Who's That Girl. How did I love this movie? I remember watching it 6 times when we rented it, but couldn't watch 15 minutes of it a few years ago.
