Critic Reviews for Gaily, Gaily

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

The resultant movie, Gaily, Gaily, is a kind of Tom Jones in Chicago, a broad-shouldered knockabout farce that has no business being so comic -- but is hugely funny because of Director Norman Jewison.

Top Critic

A movie of great and exuberant charm, one that pays homage to the classic conventions of American farce by defining them with nostalgia and cinematic wit.

May 6, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A lushly staged, handsomely produced, largely unfunny comedy.

May 6, 2013 | Full Review…

Regrettably, a silly script and some contrived comedy serve to highlight this as one of Jewison's weaker efforts.

May 6, 2013 | Full Review…

Based on Ben Hecht's colorful journalistic memories, this film is at first directed with care and style, then slowly erodes into mindless slapstick for a predictable Hollywood ending.
