...Kiss Me Kate had nothing on Singin' in the Rain.

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

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.

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

A mostly zippy showbiz paean.

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!

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

A little weak in acting at first, but warms up nicely. Quite entertaining. And even more welcoming in 3D.
