Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Although the audible devices worked exceedingly well in most instances, it is questionable whether it would not have been wiser to leave some of the voices to the imagination.
Rotten: A tedious musical comedy embedded in a routine story like a fly in celluloid.
Rotten: The Broadway Melody has not stood the test of time in ways that many of its more artistic contemporaries have.
