The music is eloquently timeless. The lyrics unparalleled, even illuminating. Yes, it's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable...it's De-Lovely.

...employs a bizarre structure that makes it virtually impossible to connect with anything or anyone on screen.

Emotionally week and distant, like watered-down soup. It provides poor nourishment.

De-Lovely, de-Nearly delectable

...if I didn't already enjoy the composer's music, this movie would never have swayed to like it.

Kline and Judd are both good, but Cole Porter seems to have more sophistication than depth.
