Snappy stage-bound musical comedy.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

August 1, 2005

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

Audience Reviews for Whoopee

Eddie Cantor made an auspicious feature film debut (he sings "My Baby Just Cares for Me" and "Makin' Whoopee") in this glittery Samuel Goldwyn production, with production numbers staged by Busby Berkeley.

i'm not a fan of eddie cantor nor of this star vehicle tailored 4 him i don't understand why he was so big he thought he was alot funnier than he is

One of Eddie Cantor's better movies, but it's still minor stuff. It's a lot of fun, and historically important due to the film being in color. The musical numbers are fair.
