Critic Reviews for Carefree
Shtick crept its way into the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers dynamic with this later collaboration.
Though not one of the best Astaire-Rogers musicals, this screwball comedy has a nice score and Oscar-nominated song by Irving Berlin.
You could probably call Carefree more of a screwball comedy than a typical Astaire-Rogers musical.
Audience Reviews for Carefree
an odd entry in astaire/rogers filmography with only four dance numbers. ginger's shooting spree is pretty frightening!
A very funny dance/musical movie with Fred and Ginger. I really like the story.
Never saw this before. Why? No idea. I'm a Turner fanatic, for one. Is this the first time they've shown this?
Whatever, I'm glad I saw this before I die. There are not a whole lotta movies I'd ever say that about, boy. In fact, there are way more movies where I'd more likely say I'm sorry I actually saw that one before I died. Wasted time, you know?
You know that sport? I think it's called something like "urban jumping" or "urban freestyle" or maybe even "urban freestyle jumping"? The stuntmen in the newest James Bond movie do a great job of it. Climbing all over the landscape, sliding down stairs, jumping through windows. Exciting stuff. If I weren't 107, I'd give that sport a try. Anyway, I just want to say that Rogers and Astaire would have made great urban jumpers. They can dance on, over, around, and through anything. As I've said before, for me there is no greater dancing duo in the history of film, and I don't think they'll ever be topped. So glad I finally did see this.
And I'm still sorry that Jack Carson never had a greater acting career. He should have been given more chances to play leading roles, as opposed to functioning merely as a character actor. Carson is a first-class act.
