A great cast elevates this musical-comedy but it can't quite reach a good level. The story itself is pretty simple as business partners (Richard Lane, Rudy Vallee) try to get Frances Lewis (Rosemary Lane) into the big time. The duo eventually break up so the Lane character tries to make Kitty Brown (Ann Miller) a superstar.
TIME OUT FOR Rhythm features a pretty good cast full of familiar faces but the plot is just so routine and predictable that the film never manages to be more than a decent "B" picture. I think the best thing the film has going for it is the cast, which is certainly good enough to keep film buffs entertained throughout the short running time. Lane is actually pretty good and believable in his role here and Vallee makes for a nice rival. Allen Jenkins is also good in his supporting bit as a piano player and there's no question that Lane is good. Ann Miller easily steals the film in her role and her dancing is certainly the highlight. THe Three Stooges appear throughout the film in brief skits as they are constantly trying to break into show business. I found their skits to be decent but at the same time they take away from the main focus of the story.
As I said, there are some problems here with the screenplay being the biggest issue. There's a love conflict that's thrown in but just adds a bunch of boring scenes and you know where they're going to go. The musical numbers are fairly good considering the budget. TIME OUT FOR Rhythm isn't a classic but if you're a fan of the cast then it's certainly worth sitting through.
