Audience Reviews for Anything Goes

½

Anything Goes is just a light, romantic comedy. Also, a review of so many songwriter Cole Porter tunes woven through a story of Crosby and O'Conner dancing their way through business transactions. SEE the entire movie here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVy_x7q2jDw If you can get through the first hour of the film, the real show begins as the girls make moves on the guys. Ted (O'Conner) is a television phenom, young and new. Bing Crosby is in his fifties and could be a relic. They both fall prey to the girls they want for a new play on Broadway. The most telling thing about the subtle and stubborn rivalry between this duo is that O'Conner keeps referring to Crosby as dad, the older one from the past (that dreaded past). Early in the film, they meet for dinner in a new club in Paris... O'Conner calls it "a relief from that museum", meaning the stage theatre both he and Crosby initially had met.

If I ever want relief from the turmoil called todays movie industry, I just throw on one of these fifties goodies sure to make me smile and forget my troubles. Full of subtle humor, period slang and witty dialog. Zizi Jeanmaire is quite the stage dancer in this one. She and Donald O'Conner (no lightweight himself to dancing) set the sets on fire with their moves. Crosby, now at the near end of his many years, is set up with Mitzi Gaynor to fake their way through dance numbers. I want to advise you to watch the stage dance number by Jeanmaire in black right around the 20th minute of the film. This was pretty advanced stuff for 1956, but since she is French playing to a French crowd, I guess the censors didn't care much. Of course, today this would be very mild entertainment. The plot of the film revolves around filling a spot for a stage production in New York. Will it be the American Gaynor or the French Jeanmaire? For me, there is no contest. I never got interested in Mitzi Gaynor, so Jeanmaire was a lay up, slam dunk. The last 20 minutes of the film is worth waiting for as you get to see Bing Crosby and Donald O'Conner ham it up in a scene where they perform on stage on their cruise ship. Almost the whole movie is aboard the ship. At the near end of the film is a skit that Crosby and O'Connoer perform on their cruise ship. Its mildly comical but we can see Bing is seriously laughing at the antics of his partner O'Conner. Watch this one as a tonic to your sore eyes. But don't come crying to me if you need to air out your room from the nostalgia.

The main setting is a passenger ship. 60% I've always enjoyed this musical. It isn't top form, but it has some very good moments. The songs are great, the cast are credible, but there is just ... 100% It's a cute movie and puts you in a good mood each time you watch it. SO I'd get it a 10. It's one of Donald's best. It's a must see. NOTES: 1 This was the last film shown on a television network in the year 1966. It aired 9 p.m. to be followed by the usual New Year's Eve telecast on NBC. 2 The film features almost no similarities to the play or the stage production, apart from some songs and the title.

★★ (out of four) Big musical misstep with pros like Bing Crosby, Donald O'Connor, and Mitzi Gaynor. The main setting is a passenger ship headed across the ocean, but the entire plot is lost at sea. Bing Crosby and Donald O'Connor are scouting for the perfect leading lady to star in the lead for their new musical they are producing on Broadway. Each of them picks out a different woman for the part and invite them to New York. [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/Zeppo1/Anything.jpg[/IMG] The entire premise is pretty bad. Normal people just don't act this way. The Cole Porter songs are fine, but their delivery is way below the songwriters standards. French actress Jeanmaire has little screen charisma and no chemistry with Crosby.

Liked this movie, love musicals and hearing the song 'De-lovely'. Overall, thought it to be a light hearted musical.
