All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

there are a lot of now-mysterious impressions of famous Broadway stars of the period, but otherwise the show is pretty darn good.

Rousing but corny musical.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A superb sequel to Babes in Arms, also directed by Berkeley, this musical sees Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney impersonate Carmen Miranda, George Cohan; the couple's appearance in black face was not controversial at the time.

Audience Reviews for Babes on Broadway

Possibly Garland & Rooney's most elaborate musical together; overlong and overly sentimental, but the score includes the Oscar-nominated "How About You?"

Great fun, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland are so much fun to watch. The highlight is Mickey Rooney imitating Carmen Miranda! It is hysterically funny and a must see. Great musical numbers and of course Judy Garland's magnificent voice would enhance any film. Great score, well written. It's a little overlong but I was never bored.
