Sep 05, 2013Astaire and Rogers often developed movies around dance numbers. In some cases it is annoying. In this case, it is entertaining. Although someone limited in their acting abilities, the duo comes across as believable and charming.John B Super Reviewer
Mar 25, 2012It's a terrific movie and a terrific musical. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers shine throughout. Rogers isn't as charismatic as Astaire is and Astaire doesn't let his charismatic ego overtake Rogers. I guess that is why they work so well together. The plot really bares no meaning except that Mimi Glossop (Rogers) is in England seeking a divorce. She meets Guy Holden (Fred Astaire)who is a dancer and is infatuated with Glossop. The plot also deals with hiring a lawyer and to plan a fake adultous relationship. The scenes that really swept me off my feet were the formal dance sequences. This alone should have won big honors because it is perfectly choreographed, the framing is just right, elegant, epic, and straight simple. The extras make the dance routines look so easy and i'm sure those scenes must have took months to master. "The Gay Divorcee" left a smile on my face which few pictures today do.
Sep 03, 2010This movie is really funny in some scenes, but the song and dance numbers are silly, and I just couldn't take it.
Oct 08, 2009Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire were the very personification of the Hollywood dancing team. The film is a comedy of mistaken identitties in which Rogers mistakenly thinks Astaire. in the guise of her supposed lover, is the man who will help her get a divorce. The film is driven by many wonderful dance sequences. The climax of all Astaire's dancing scenes is the one where his steps seduce Rogers to the strains of Cole Porter's "Night and Day" song and where she finally falls in love with him. Ginger and Fred are exceptionally and truly are Hollywood's legendary dancing partners.Cinema F Super Reviewer
