Living in a Big Way Reviews

  • Nov 10, 2020

    A partir d'une sombre histoire de mariage annulé pour cause de Seconde Guerre Mondiale, Living in a Big Way est une comédie musicale de très bon niveau pour Gene Kelly qui joue le cocu de service. Avec autant de charme que de talent, il survole le film de la tête et des épaules, film qui possède quelques jolies chansons et quelques morceaux de claquettes beaucoup plus intéressants qu'attendu. Dans le rôle de sa femme, Marie McDonald fait des merveilles. Living in a Big Way n'est pas inoubliable, mais c'est une comédie mordante, piquante et surtout assez osée pour son époque.

    It's a comedy! It's a drama! It's a musical! Odd MGM hybrid gives Kelly a chance to perform three (uninspired) musical numbers.

    I thought it was much better than the reviews had stated. Kelly gave an excellent and understated performance. Marie McDonald was the weak link in this film.

    Funny and entertaining. An interesting post war story that reflects todays society.

    An entertaining, somewhat meandering film. Good dance sequences from Kelly, with a highlight being "Fido and Me" and the dance number with all the kids. A good film.

    NOT AT ALL A SUCCESS WHEN RELEASED, ALTHOUGH ITS NOT GREAT, IT'S HARDLY THAT BAD. IT'S AN UNEASY MIX OF COMEDY, DRAMA, SOCIAL COMMENTARY AND MUSICAL NUMBERS, OBVIOUSLY TRYING TO TACKLE TOO MUCH AT ONCE. SOME GOOD PERFORMANCES, ESPECILLAY BY BYINGTON
