Sometimes funny, but this has a lot of singing, as the title says. If you want to see a lot of singing, this is the movie.

1938 was the height of the screwball comedy, and MGM attempted to cash in on the craze by meshing it with a musical; although the results were less than stellar, the film does offer a chance to see a pre-OZ Judy Garland, and the great Fanny Brice.

This awkward picture is a glance into the curious missteps of MGM before they found the right ways to put the talents of their all star cast, and, in particular, Garland, to use. The film pieces together several out of place musical numbers, the racially insensitive Minstrel show entertainment of the time and even Fanny Brice's popular radio persona as Baby Snooks, which fails to capture the humour and ingenuity of the real Baby Snooks Show and comes off as a cheap, lackluster imitation. Billy Burke fails to charm as the eccentric, distant mother, and the story line muddles along at an awkward pace, never really taking off to the level you would expect from stars of this caliber. It's no wonder why "The Wizard of Oz" is seen as Garland's real introduction to film stardom, while this peculiar predecessor is left behind along with "Every Sunday" and several other MGM-Garland experiments.

Despite being overly cheesy and a little slow at times, the story is very nice and has some great songs. Even though Judy Garland shines on camera, Fanny Brice steals the show with her wit and charm as Olga Chekaloff.

A great musical comedy for the entire family! Allan Jone's character and songs are a bit of a bore, but when Judy starts to sing it will make you totally forget the boring parts! Billie Burke and Fanny Brice add to the enjoyment with their comical characters! This is just an overall fabulous movie!

Judy Garland takes star billing in this fairly flimsy musical when MGM was still experimenting with her talents! It's pretty routine stuff except for one little comedic gem -a song called "Why, Because" which Garland performs with Fanny Brice who re-creates her 'Baby Snooks' character.

[font=Arial Black][color=black]I watched this movie a couple of nights ago and it made me laugh so much. It was a very funny movie but I also loved the singing. Judy garland is a wonderful actress.[/color][/font]
