Very likable little comic drama gives Liza a nice showcase for her considerable dancing skills, her singing is a matter of opinion but she can belt a number across like few others. The supporting cast is a good one all with little quirks, Shelley Winters stands out with some truly affecting moments.
An enjoyable 'let's do the show right here' film based on a play. Gilbert is mostly remembered for his Bond films and Alfie but in the 80's and 90's he did a few adapatations of plays to films, including 'Educating Rita' and 'Noises Off'. This has a great ensemble and you end up caring for them and hoping they do well. It also ends with some brilliant dance routines. However it is Minnelli who shines here. She is adorable as the teacher and you can't help but warm to her. If you like dance and comedy with real heart you can't go far wrong with this.
