Swingtime Mess
17 May 2012 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Are you a fan of the Andrews Sisters? Because that would be the only excuse to watch "Swingtime Johnny", and from a studio that made some pretty good musicals in the 30's and 40's. This one is a misfire, with an incoherent storyline about a group of gals (the Andrews' plus Harriet Hilliard) and guys (a swing band) who work in a munitions factory but mostly concentrate on music. The Andrews Sisters are, of course, very energetic and eager to please (like the Ritz Bros., you watch the one in the middle). The rest of the cast probably signed on because they needed the work.

The musical numbers are passable but the comedy is very lame and seems forced and suffers from bad timing. The whole production needed a better director to pull the story together and to afford better continuity, but maybe fans of the Sisters won't mind - they can just wait for the songs.

Memo to website users; please get serious. The rating for this picture is inflated. Rate movies like 'Shrek 3', and leave the grunt work to us bottom feeders.
