Critic Reviews for Thoroughly Modern Millie
Very underrated Julie Andrews musical, a cult favorite for many, including myself.
The current Broadway show has way more energy.
A bit overlong, but thoroughly enjoyable period musical.
Audience Reviews for Thoroughly Modern Millie
A true childhood favourite of mine, a very memorable tale with song and dance made famous by Julie Andrews.
It's probably not as great as I remember it being, but there is still lots about this film that make it an enjoyable watch.
The movie version is a ton longer and more boring than the musical. Definite upgrade when Sutton Foster did it.More
A trio of talented dames took hold of this musical and breathed life into it. Set in the age of the flapper, there are references to the silent picture era, beautiful musical numbers, and the always flamboyant and full of zeal Carol Channing. The entire production went a bit long, and got sidetracked by easy to miss add ons, plus there was the entire side story of white slavery perpetrated by the Chinese overseers of a hotel for single young girls, which took away from what was important. The ending itself was unfortunate, and could have done with a bit of a rewrite. Otherwise, amazing.More
If I grit my teeth during the unnecessary musical numbers, there's quite an enjoyable pastiche of silent movies and the roaring twenties in general lurking underneath. The cast cheerfully send themselves up and it's infectiously daft.More
