The Stork Club movie is probably best enjoyed by those in their late 30s and upwards. The movies in the 40s generally provide adequate entertainment for either a matinée or an evening showing. This movie is no exception. The stars in this movie seamlessly perform their parts well. The plot is not that great. The movie drags a little in the middle, but many movies do. Betty Hutton is always entertaining. There is some musical scores and singing in the movie which leads to additional enjoyment. The plot like many 40s movies is highly predictable. Yet Barry Fitzgerald is very entertaining as well. The Stork Club provides a non-memorable, yet entertaining way to pass time. Not quite a "Busy" movie. You can enjoy the movie with a bowl of popcorn and some friends. Enjoy.
