Mixed feelings...
13 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about this movie. Over all, I enjoyed it. I've seen 5 movies with Donald O'Connor and Peggy Ryan and this is definitely not my favorite of them all.

I'll start with the negative. Ann Blyth is one of the things that I don't particularly like in this musical. I've seen her in "The Merry Monahans", also with O'Connor and Ryan, and she was quite different. This was her first film. So she might not have been so confident. But her singing is very irritating. In "The Merry Monahans", her singing is great and her acting is amazing, too. But in this one, her singing sounds very bad and her acting is far from good. Maybe it's just because I dislike her character in this one, Glory Marlowe III. The character is an annoyance and she was not very enjoyable in this one. There was also some broken direction here and there. And the plot is an real cliché. But, really other than those, it's a good movie.

O'Connor and Ryan sparkle in this one. They get to do one great dance called "Is it Good or is it Bad?". This song alone is enough to make you buy this one. They also dance to "I Gotta Give My Feet a Break" and they get to do a few comedy bits. These two are dynamite and carry the movie through. If it weren't for these two, the film would have been a disaster. But these two take the picture to the end and make it full of life.

I don't recommend this that much. If you want some great stuff from O'Connor and Ryan, check out "Mister Big" or "Patrick the Great". But this one is good, too. Not their best. But pretty good.

7/10
