A funny thing happened on the way to Hollywood: A good musical-comedy lost much of its fizz.
| Original Score: 6/10

The middling low-brow slapstick comedy overdoses on the brassy Zero Mostel hamming it up.

Humorous to an extent, but lacking the bang you might expect from a big screen musical.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a classic in its own right. The songs are fun and the story is unpredictable (even if it does occasionally meander for too long).

A great mixture of slapstick, farce and music. Zero Mostel is a treat as is the underappreciated Jack Gilford.
| Original Score: 4/5

Hilarious, stagey version of hit Broadway musical comedy.

Perhaps the first modern film musical -- breaking with and even making sport of the theatrical artifice that had been bogging down the genre for nearly a decade.
