Critic Reviews for Babes in Arms

All Critics (5)

One of the most popular musical movies of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland as youngsters.

April 24, 2011 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Strictly for the fans of Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland, and those with a soft spot for vaudeville.

September 23, 2008 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Full of vim and vigor -- maybe a little too much for some viewers

Audience Reviews for Babes in Arms

I'm not a big fan of the early Mickey Rooney stuff. Yeah yeah. Its cute and sentimental but it just doesn't translate well anymore.
