It's all completely ludicrous yet quite charming.

Audience Reviews for April in Paris

Story is predictable, but Doris Day is fabulous, Bolger's dancing gives the movie a boost, and there are some funny moments.

Colorful, breezy minor musical. Doris is full of her usual verve and Ray Bolger, although an unusual leading man for her is a dancing wonder especially in the number when he dances with Washington and Lincoln.
