Even when it's not quite running on all cylinders, LeRoy's Gypsy is never less than cute, and sometimes, it's a good deal more. [Blu-ray]
You'll be swell, you'll be great...not!
Mervyn LeRoy's screen version of the popular musical is passably entertaining, due to Rosalind Russell's turn as Mama Rose, but something is missing
A bloated musical that is far from great and more like average.
Entertaining adaptation of the Broadway musical.
Lavish old-school movie musical.
An annoying musical.
This is a good movie based on the real life of Gypsy Rose Lee. The actors in this movie give good performances. Plus, it gives the audience a look at vaudeville too. I liked it.
The best numbers of any musical, essentially thanks to the amazing performance by Rosalind Russell, even if she was dubbed.
Rosalind Russell is a force to be reckoned with as Mama Rose in this biographical musical about the humble beginnings of her daughter, 'Gypsy Rose Lee'. Natalie Wood shines in an appealing performance as the title character, a nice counterbalance to Russell's strident display as the stage mother from hell. An eight-minute monologue at the end drags on the film's 144min running time, but overall an entertaining, lavish movie adaptation of the 1959 Stephen Sondheim / Jules Styne musical.
Roz Russell is a force to be reckoned with but not the force I need for the greedy powerhouse that is Rose. There are some moments in which she shines but I admire her more than I am appalled by her. Also, she can't sing. Actually, a lot of people in this movie can't sing, except for June. But I didn't mind it so much this time because the screen personalities shined through. I don't think anybody really got that much material to work with except Rose, and Roz could've been better...I wish I had seen Ethel Merman in this role. She was so noisy and annoying in It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad World I KNOW she OWNED that role. Also, Natalie Wood fleshed out her character as best as she could, better than Cynthia Gibb.
