Very light and fluffy
20 September 2000 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

There really isn't much to this movie. The plot is so silly that no one takes it seriously. Music is forbidden by the Princess because her subjects are having too much fun to work and to pay off the nation's debt. So music goes underground as Durante and the tenor try to change her mind. There's romance and lots of singing and it looked as though everyone was having a light hearted good time. It was the spirit of the people in the film that rubbed off on me, lots of smiles and laughter, people enjoying themselves that made this fluffy film fun for me too
