Most enjoyable MGM musical with an all-star cast; everybody gets to swim with Esther Williams, including Tom & Jerry.
½ February 9, 2009
Another of Esther Williams's better films; the swimming is worked into the plot well with the contest across the English Channel, and Williams and Fernando Lamas have great chemistry. Most of the songs are pretty forgettable and not very well-integrated into the story, but it's a classic for the sequence where Williams swims with Tom and Jerry in her dream.

A LITTLE ABOVE AVERAGE MUSICAL WITH AN UNUSUAL PLOT FOR A MUSICAL - A CONTEST FOR THE FIRST WOMAN TO SWIM THE ENGLISH CHANNEL. BUT, THERE IS A VERY MEMORABLE SCENE WHERE ESTER WILLIAMS SWIMS WITH CARTOON CHARACTERS TOM AND JERRY. NONE OF THE SONGS ARE PARTICULARLY MEMORABLE.

Fun, romance and melodrama. A nice clip with Tom and jerry swimming underwater with the heroine.

Esther Williams vehicle has great title and not much else. Story never really gels and songs are not very memorable. Greenwood and Demarest add a lot of fun, with Greenwood's dance number being a creepy highlight (old lady doing splits, yikes!). The Tom & Jerry dream sequence feels tacked on and was done better in Anchors Aweigh. Esther does look especially fetching in the black swimsuit given to her by Lamas in the swimming pool scene.

It's a cute movie at best, the Tom and Jerry scene with Esther is so classic.
