I can't believe this is on Itunes!

This movie really is a must see for all musical lovers. It's very cute and the songs are quite catchy! But I don't know why they label this a comedy. It's witty, but not funny enough to be a comedy.


I love this movie. Anyone who is a sucker for musicals and/or old movies will love it.


A musical?? Don't make me laugh. Not one of the lead actors in this flop of a movie could carry a note. And if you listen closely, you'll notice that they are not, in fact, actually singing- just talking through the lyrics while music plays in the background. I generally am a great fan of musicals, but this one doesn't even qualify for the genre.

No one in my family could tolerate it - and we all have a pretty high tolerance. It takes everything tacky and bad from movies of this era (late 50's) and wraps it all up in one big gaudy plaid package with a big red bow. The "plot" itself is hardly there, being loose-jointed, clunky, repetitous, and pretty darn offensive. It's a weird little film with weird little people doing weird little things.

For good musicals with good acting and - gasp! - MUSIC, my top recommendations are: The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, An American in Paris, and any of the Astair/Rogers films.
