  • Easter Parade may not strike the perfect balance between song-dance interludes and story, but it's an appealing show just the same.

    Aug 8, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Easter Parade is the sort of musical to put your feet up for.

    Jan 26, 2006
  • A fantastic movie, featuring two of the finest motion picture performers ever, Astaire and Judy Garland, in their only cinematic pairing. Ann Miller also stars in there, too, to spice things up even more.

    Apr 21, 2005
  • The Irving Berlin score is bright, and Walters is one director who knows when to leave Astaire to his own devices.

    Jan 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • ...has the advantage of Fred Astaire and Judy Garland in the lead roles, Irving Berlin numbers throughout, and hats upon hats upon hats.

Audience Reviews for Easter Parade


Another great Irving Berlin musical, with some superior talent in Astaire and Garland. The only thing that I am worrisome over is the entire concept that this movie ties in with the Easter Parade, when in fact it's barely mentioned.

Okay, seriously, Fred Astaire - who are you kidding picking Judy Garland over Ann Miller? No man in his right mind would ever reject the always charming Ann Miller after that dazzling tap number for that lame-o tramp (and by tramp I mean bum, not slut) routine. Nevertheless, this was solid. The songs are great, Judy Garland's vibrato voice always works for her, and Fred Astaire taps dat off the walls! It's a delightful confection. Like eating an Easter candy.
