A mostly zippy showbiz paean.

A little weak in acting at first, but warms up nicely. Quite entertaining. And even more welcoming in 3D.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The theatrical antics are a bit forced and the musical numbers aren't the best in the history of musical cinema, but this still stands as an 'important' film of its era, albeit a minor and relatively forgettable one.

One of the all-time best movie musicals, with Fosse choreography and Porter's vunderbar music.
| Original Score: 5/5

A fun musical with tuneful Cole Porter songs and a fun script.

The picture's brio is quaint and disarming, for the most part getting its laughs when it needs them.

Thanks to the genius of George Sidney at the helm, there's never a dull moment nor a single instance of a song or dance simply shoehorned in with no bearing on the story. So brush up your Porter if you must have a background before seeing this, and go!
