Best scene: "It's De-Lovely" with Donald O'Connor and Mitzi Gaynor. That one sequence was everything I hoped the rest of the movie was (sweet, funny, lovely, intriguing).

Dedicated fan of musicals, especially the older book musicals. When the transition from stage to screen of a great stage show is as pathetic as this one, it comes as an unexpected, unpleasant surprise. The treatment of Cole Porter's music is a felony.
They should have left this in the can and floated it over the falls.

Pathetic plot aside, the best scene in this movie is the "It's De-Lovely" number performed sweetly by Donald O'Connor and Mitzi Gaynor. It's the main reason why I watch it!

This was a MAJOR insult to Cole Porter and all his fans. I couldn't last 20 minutes.

while this isn't an especially original film, it's still wonderfully enjoyable. the characters were interesting, the relationships showed some semblance of depth (unlike many other of this film's musical contemporaries), and the plot and dialogue were engaging and entertaining. part Golden Age musical, part zany romantic comedy, part Cole Porter revue. really a fun movie.

Donald O'Connor has to be the most talented underused guy in the business. Other than 2 rather good songs and a couple of scenes(all with O'Connor), the music was worse than average, Bing's getting up there and has done much better, the girls were not engaging at all and it really just wasted too much time.

The story's been told a billion times, but I love Donald O'Connor. Especially in the scene with all the children.

I did not really like this movie.

I really wish this movie would have stuck with the original stage musical because I think it would have been more worthwhile. I love the Cole Porter songs and the dance scenes with them, but that was all I watched it for. The rest was pretty lame.

Still one of those I like to see on stage (if at all)

You know how dumb horror movies have killings that have nothing to do with the story? And stupid action movies have car chases that have nothing to do with the theme? In 'Anything Goes,' every song exists for the sake of the song, and while the choreography and color certainly dazzle, most of the time I was like, "What the fuck, Cros." The song-and-dance bits are strung together so arbitrarily, the glitzy fluff comes off as pornographic.

Great Musical. Donald O'Connor and Bing Crosby did a great job acting together.

You would hope that the songs in a musical have something to do with the story line and that the leads can all sing. But not in this movie. And when they weren't singing, they were engaged in boring conversation like "I don't know why I burn toast but not crepes." We thought this movie would never end.
