Delightful musical
4 November 2003 | by (Midlothian, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I have always like Frank Morgan and he was fun to watch in this entertaining movie. Excellent voice-overs done during his impersonations, lip-synch was perfect. Good direction, and the rest of the cast was a lot of fun. An easy 7.
