Audience Reviews for My Sister Eileen
A lightweight musical w/o much of a plot (2 small town women try to make it in New Yawk) but still interesting for a coupla reasons. One is the performance of Mr. Bob Fosse. He does sincere engagingly well. Then there's a song by Lemmon at which he fails, but he goes down gallantly fighting. And there's Janet Leigh trying the musical/dance genre. Whoda thunk it? These and more make this interesting while still not altogether entertaining.More
I know it's a remake, but it's got Jack Lemmon, and he's really funny in this movie. I want to see the original now.More
Bland average musical, Betty Garrett is good as is Jack although he shouldn't have sung. Some of the dances are fine some blah. Worth a view but only one.More
