Critic Reviews for A Date with Judy
A Date with Judy features a song called Strictly on the Corny Side, which might serve as the movie's theme song.
A Date with Judy is loaded with youthful zest, making for gay, light entertainment.
Taylor is breathtakingly beautiful, but Miranda walks off with every scene she's in.
It's ridiculously old-fashioned, but it's also spectacular entertainment, with wonderful songs, a big heart, and plenty of laughs.
Audience Reviews for A Date with Judy
Sweet comedy, a time capsule of teenhood in the movies in the 40's. Elizabeth Taylor is very young and very beautiful and Jane Powell is charming and pert. Carmen Miranda is a delight as always, her clothes are outlandish, take special note of her shoes and wonder how she could possibly walk in them! One quibble, the technicolor is unusually garish and at times the cast pratically glows orange.
Jane Powell sings like an Angel, Elizabeth Taylor at the Height of her Beauty, Carmen Miranda & Xavier Cugat, Ohhhhh, Be Still My Heart!
I enjoyed this more than I was expecting. Just seeing Wallace Beery rumba with Carmen Miranda was worth watching the film for! Great score, nicely done songs. The costume design is good. The very young Elizabeth Taylor is clearly budding into one of the greatest beauties to grace the screen. Solid support from Selena Royle and Leon Ames, It doesn?t rank among the greatest musicals ever made, but it is light, entertaining and fun.
