The best of the Esther Williams swim-musicals is just bubbly.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Although it hasn't much story (or many good jokes), its characters and music are appealing.

Audience Reviews for Neptune's Daughter

back in the day exotic was exotic, forget where it came from, and so in this song and dance marathon south american/african culture is mixed with polynesian/asian for a seamless exotic faraway feel. and why team esther so many times with latin leading men? there must be an answer, but who gives a toot anyway. a fun time, some nice tunes, and, as ever, xavier cugat and his orchestra in a zany, convuluted, sycopated and choreographed...number, zowie! look for the man of a thousand voices in a bit comic part, too.

Kevin M. Williams

Super Reviewer

This screwball musical-comedy is light on the storyline, but great on the show-tunes and choreography. It's also super fun to watch these dated 50s films and all of the hockeyness.

One of the best of Williams' MGM aquatic musicals, with colorful comic support from Skelton & Garrett, and the Oscar-winning song "Baby, It's Cold Outside."
