Despite a game cast giving it their all, this is one White Christmas that I will never be dreaming of.

...not a great musical, just a pleasant little piece of fluff trying to capitalize on past accomplishments.

Feels...like the time of night where it's almost time for bed, the fire in the fireplace is beginning to die and the house seems just a little cold.

is it un-American to say this is a woefully overrated mediocrity?

Director Michael Curtiz has made his picture look good. It is too bad that it doesn't hit the eardrums and the funnybone with equal force.

The whole thing is rather forced and antiseptically cheerful.

A good musical with a lot of star power.

Kaye is superb, especially in his knockout dance routine with Vera-Ellen, and the direction from veteran Michael Curtiz rightly embraces the sentiment rather than keeping it at bay.

Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, along with VistaVision, keep the enteratinment going in this fancifully staged production, clicking well.

Paramount's first film in (lavender-hued) VistaVision was this pornographically soppy but, nonetheless, hearty and humorous 1954 festive romp.

White Christmas isn't as delightful as its supposed predecessor, but if for no other reason, it's worth seeing for a gorgeously simple arrangement of the title tune, which Crosby croons accompanied only by a windup music box.

White Christmas is the cinema equivalent of an inappropriate festive snog under the mistletoe -- you know you probably shouldn't enjoy it but you just can't help yourself.
