All Critics (6)

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are particularly shoved to the side in this outing...

Feb 22, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Enjoyable if not one of the great Astaire-Rogers musicals, Roberta received nomination for the Best Song Oscar (Lovely to Look At).

Jul 12, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

You have to put up with a plot that's so sticky it doesn't fly.

Weary book, still wonderful score.

Good Astaire-Rogers musical that suffers slightly from subplot.

What a cast! And, of course, it's Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Irene Dunne as a super bonus as well. Must say this again: Rogers and Astaire are the dancing couple of all time. More than anyone else, they dance as if they are in love, and their dancing acts out this love. Dancing, for them, is the same as acting.
