Royal Wedding Reviews

December 29, 2018
...for just a moment in Stanley Donen's Royal Wedding we believe that love can make us weightless.

Almost wall-to-wall dancing, with a vengeance.

It looks like a million bucks, and it's easy to like, and for [producer Arthur] Freed, that was what mattered.

When all is said and done, Stanley Donen's first solo directorial assignment, after his work with Gene Kelly, is a lovely bit of frou-frou.

The plot of this Stanley Donen musical is slender, but it doesn't matter as it features some of Astaire's best dancing, including a number in which he dances on the walls and ceiling.

Family entertainment doesn't get any livelier.

Embarrassing nonsense that is barely saved by three classic musical numbers.

The slight story is considerably improved by the lively music.

This is an engaging concoction of songs and dances in a standard musical framework, brightly dressed in color to show off its physical attributes.

Fine MGM musical with wonderful highlight of Astaire dancing on ceiling, walls, etc.
June 24, 2006
A pleasant enough score by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner, helped out by Donen's stylish direction.

One swell number, three or four that are good, a laugh here, a laugh there; colored newsreels of the British royal wedding and so long pal. Mr. Astaire has fared better in his lifetime -- and he has also fared much worse.

Though famous for the number where Astaire dances on the ceiling, this is lower grade material.
May 3, 2004
An above average MGM musical, highlighted by Astaire's amazing dance on the ceiling.

The film's saving grace is Astaire, and the most famous number 'You're All the World to Me' has him dancing on walls and the ceiling in a tour de force by star, director and choreographer.
