Audience Reviews for Reaching for the Moon (1930)


a nice romantic comedy, I didn't know Fairbanks could be so funny! Plus, you get a cameo from Bing Crosby and he was like 26, he looks like a teen he's so young! This movie was fun, but of course it is a predictable romantic comedy, and could be better, especially the picture and sound quality.

Super Reviewer

Sweet romantic comedy, with a rare appearance of Douglas Fairbanks in a talking motion picture. Edward Everett Horton offers capable support, good story.
