Under rated Crosby, Wyman romantic musical with Capra touch.

February 24, 2008

Capra desperately tries to capture his prewar whimsical mood.

Audience Reviews for Here Comes the Groom

Sprightly semi musical with the four leads all giving energetic performances. All four stars play well off each other, not just as male and female couples but in all there varied interactions. The supporting cast led by Connie Gilchrist and Robert Keith is perfect down to the smallest roles and Capra keeps it all moving at a lively clip.

Super Reviewer


Weakest Frank Capra film I have seen so far. The few musical numbers just seem way out of place and some of the acting is pretty bad. Crosby is charming and excellant and shines.

Anthony Stevenson

Very fun romatic comedy musical. Great cast, and a wonderful supporting creew, especially Alexis Smith, giving one of her most memorable performances. Great music especiallt the Oscar winning "In the Cool Cool Cool of the Evening."
