The brothers claim that there were no F names in the Bible. While there are "F" names in the New Testament, all the names shown are from the Old Testament, so presumably that was the only part of the Bible they were referring to. See more »
An all-time classic, no matter how many times you see it!
I've seen this movie about ten times over the years, and it is such a joy to watch! This movie was nominated for Best Picture, and rightly so. The snappy, well written, melodic songs, coupled with the first rate dancing is a match made in Hollywood musical heaven. By the way, did you know that the guy playing "Frank" was borrowed from the New York Ballet?
This film will put a warm fuzzy feeling in you throughout the entire two hours. This movie stands up against "Singin in the Rain", and "On the Town" any day!
See it in the wide-screen version for the full effect!
