It seems that every time Joe breaks into a song, people of both sexes swoon.

Thunderously patriotic (the navy is wonderful) and sentimental (kids are wonderful), it's heavily dependent on Kelly's charm and Sinatra's supposed little-boy appeal.

Tepid and slow.

I absolutely loved this film. It's like musical cotton candy, a feast of great songs and dance numbers and bright colors.

Producer Joe Pasternak is not Arthur Freed and director George Sidney is not Minnelli, but this fun and inventive musical, which blends live action and animation, has some good musical numbers, sung by Sinatra and Gene Kelly (who also choreographed).

A very thin story stretched out for over two hours, this is a melange of the wonderful and the pompous.

Kelly is perfect as usual, Sinatra is his ideal partner and the plot never gets in the way of the songs.
