Critic Reviews for South Pacific
Joshua Logan's stiff screen version leaves much to be desired, and Mitzi Gaynor is miscast and charmless, but the score is undenibaly glorious
Might not be musical enough for some, and it's certainly not going to be substantial enough for some. But it's entertaining and more emotionally true than you might expect.
What the hell could anyone have been thinking in literalizing an "enchanted evening" as a toxic cloud?
Despite the reddish hues, one great Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.
One of the most popular musicals of the decade, despite artistic problems
Audience Reviews for South Pacific
mitzi gaynor is absolutely stunning. south pacific is a fine musical with wonderful landscapes and really solid music. i did feel that the war story could have been used a little more and the love story a little less, but overall this is a great musical.
Out of all the Rogers and Hammerstein musicals South Pacific is probably the best. Still it's a wildly uneven piece with a few really good songs scattered among some very mediocre one's. As for this film, it's a very poor adaptation. The color filtered scenes gave me a headache and its really boring because almost none of it is at all interesting.
A mere shadow of the stage play. Overproduced and almost painfully overbright.
