Critic Reviews for Whoopee

All Critics (5)

Snappy stage-bound musical comedy.

March 1, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Absolutely charming--and gloriously dated--Cantor vehicle. In two-strip Tech...and Cantor recreating his Broadway sensation.

August 1, 2005 | Rating: 5/5

Probably as close as we'll ever get to seeing what a 1920s Broadway stage musical was like.

August 24, 2003 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
