Even when it's not quite running on all cylinders, LeRoy's Gypsy is never less than cute, and sometimes, it's a good deal more. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Gypsy

This is a good movie based on the real life of Gypsy Rose Lee. The actors in this movie give good performances. Plus, it gives the audience a look at vaudeville too. I liked it.

Super Reviewer

The best numbers of any musical, essentially thanks to the amazing performance by Rosalind Russell, even if she was dubbed.

Rosalind Russell is a force to be reckoned with as Mama Rose in this biographical musical about the humble beginnings of her daughter, 'Gypsy Rose Lee'. Natalie Wood shines in an appealing performance as the title character, a nice counterbalance to Russell's strident display as the stage mother from hell. An eight-minute monologue at the end drags on the film's 144min running time, but overall an entertaining, lavish movie adaptation of the 1959 Stephen Sondheim / Jules Styne musical.
