Kelly and Donen take the MGM musical outdoors, the New York minute is stretched to 24 hours
May 3, 2013
Delightful, athletic stuff with some unusual -- but wonderful -- location shooting. New York never looked better.

One of the last great movie musicals.

On the Town is so energetic and vital that the screen barely contains it.

Its aww-shucks charm becomes hard to resist as the three sailors dart around Manhattan, looking for culture, sights, and, of course, 24-hour love.

The pep, enthusiasm and apparent fun the makers of On the Town had in putting it together comes through to the audience and gives the picture its best asset.

With Donen and Kelly at the musical helm, it's no surprise that the song-and-dance numbers are top notch.

It's romp, it's a romance, it's a songfest, it's everything that has now become rather passe in a musical comedy.

On the Town is exhilarating, brash spectacle, all rip-snorting, wisecracking attack, and maybe just a teensy bit unlikeable.
September 25, 2004
Disappointingly flat musical; if you're after a Kelly/Sinatra pairing, you'll do better with Anchors Aweigh (and even that is no masterpiece).
| Original Score: 2/5

Simply wonderful and a time capsule to boot!
