    AFI 100 Greatest Films - #55: This film is a prime example, for me, of nostalgia winning out over a hokey plot or performance. It had probably been 25 years since I last watched this musical yet I was shocked at how well I remembered the story and songs, evidence of the lasting impression that has remained on popular culture. I know many people from my generation grew up with mothers who loved this film, as I did, and part of the fun in watching in my house growing up was poking fun at the corniness and unintended laughable aspects of the film. While some of the acting could definitely face criticism Julie Andrews delivers the type of performance that makes envisioning anyone else in that role impossible. The scenery and set design is exquisite throughout the whole film, in both the natural environments, as well the constructed indoor sets. And the marionette scene, always my favorite, didn't disappoint with age.

    Three hours is way too long for a musical.

    A slick musical with very catchy tunes but I don't really see what all the fuss is about.

    Thank God for my mother who raised me watching amazing classics like "The Sound of Music" among many others. This has always been and will always be one of my favorite movies for so many different reasons. Too many to list here, for sure. I can only say that if you haven't watched it yet I envy you that first time experience of seeing this charming film. The songs in this movie alone are worth watching it for, but the story is also wonderful. It may start out kind of light and fluffy and then comes the second half of the film and you realize that this is so much more than a just a light hearted musical. The costumes and scenery are also fantastic! I still come across people who love the movie, but didn't realize that the Von Trapp family was a real family in Austria who fled the German occupation.
