This film is so odd that I'm not quite sure what to say about it. It was made in the brief era of MGM history where they had no clue how to use Garland's talents, and the result is a clunky, unimpressive and often bizarre flick that leaves a lot to be desired from its talented cast (including Fanny Brice, Billie Burke and, of course, Judy Garland). I did love the bit at the beginning where Judy starts singing a swing song at that uptight girls' school, which made me wish the entire film was about a rebellious girl trying to be an individual in a snooty and repressive environment. That would have been a much better film than this! Admitedly, some of the songs are fun, like when Judy sings "Down on Melody Farm." Of course, there is that regrettable bit involving blackface, which leaves me highly disappointed as a Garland fan and serves as further proof why this film should be avoided. The Baby Snooks bit was very disappointing, too, seeing as how I am a fan of the original radio broadcast (and if you're familiar with it, you know just how funny and witty it is) and this was a pale, watered down rendition that did not resemble the show in the slightest. Overall, this film has been largely forgotten by the populous and deservedly so, as it wastes its talented stars with a shoddy script and forgettable (and sometimes offensive) musical numbers. Skip it.
