It's like a meal consisting of cheesecake, and one quickly longs for something solid and vulgar to weigh things down.

A silly feel-good film, nothing that happens is in the least bit surprising.

The great Minnelli was surely one of the masters of the American musical, but Gigi was one of his misfires.

How much one likes it, depends on how much French pastry one can eat during one sitting.

Gigi is dressed to kill, but if all the French finery impresses the customers, it also smothers the story.

With so many outstanding performances in the film, it is to Maurice Chevalier's great credit that he is able to steal the show.

In the hands of a master craftsman, even this otherwise iffy musical becomes lively, lovely entertainment.

Given the shortage of dancing and soaring vocal melodies...Minnelli must lean heavily on personality and a spectacle defined by the pageantry of historic locations, sets and costumes. [Blu-ray]

Feminist musical, with Minnelli's taste and visual style, makes for an involving experience.
