Critic Reviews for Summer Holiday

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • Where Mr. O'Neill's reminiscence of adolescent youth back in the days of peg-top trousers, of the Rubaiyat craze and the five-cent schooner of beer was a subtle and sensitive understanding, this picture is largely a big lark.

  • The Eugene O'Neill play, Ah. Wilderness with its account of a turn-of-the-century smalltown New England family, provides admirable setting, story, color and mood for the musical numbers and script.

    March 26, 2009 | Full Review…
  • It must be conceded that the film is a gay enough lark, with fine production numbers and good songs -- one in particular, "Stanley Stamer" being outstanding.

  • A pleasant turn of the century musical remake of the hit 1935 MGM comedy-drama Ah, Wilderness!

    October 24, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Mickey Rooney may not be the ideal actor to play Eugene O'Neill's alter ego, but as a nostalgic evocation of small town life at the turn of the century, Mamoulian's musical version of Ah, Wilderness is evocative, charming and nice to look at.

    July 22, 2009 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • A sweet movie with good work by all the actors, Summer Holiday benefits immeasurably from director Mamoulian's inventiveness and the handsome cinematography and production values.

Audience Reviews for Summer Holiday

  • Aug 16, 2013
    Musicalization of Ah! Wilderness is okay with Rooney one of the oldest high school graduates you'll ever see. It's the supporting cast of Huston, Morgan, Selena Royale and Marilyn Maxwell that make the picture worth seeing. Agnes Moorehead, who looks great in the period costumes, is wasted as Cousin Lily which has been reduced from the original.
