Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Holiday Inn offers a reason for celebration not printed in red ink on the calendar. – Theodore Strauss, New York Times, Dec 4, 2013

Fresh: Crosby's easy, casual banter is just the right foil for Astaire's precision acrobatics, his wry, offbeat humor. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Loaded with a wealth of songs, it's meaty, not too kaleidoscopic and yet closely knit for a compact 100 minutes of tiptop filmusical entertainment. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Between the toe twinkling and ivory tickling it's still a comfortable, cosy way to pass an afternoon. – Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine, Dec 12, 2014

Best Holiday Movie Ever!

I first saw this movie as a child in 1979 on PBS television during Christmas Time. I have loved this movie ever since. It is a little known fact that Irving Berlin actually wrote the song White Christmas for this movie. Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire are incredibly entertaining. This movie is for the entire family. It is now a holiday tradition in my home. Even if u aren't a fan of musicals give it a try, it just may become a tradition in your home.

My favorite!

This movie is definitely on my top 5 favorite Christmas movie list.

Great movie, but contains the racism of its time

This is a true classic and contains some of Irving Berlin's best songs.

But... If you're watching with kids, you'll want to discuss some of the racism (and misogyny, too) that was the norm of the day. The blackface scene -- well, it's pretty bad, and usually cut from TV showings.

So enjoy it, but know that it's a product of its cultural period.
