Trivia

This film was slated to premiere in April 1991 to coincide with Liza Minnelli's record-breaking 3 week engagement at New York's Radio City Music Hall which was entitled "Stepping Out at Radio City." Alas, the reins at Paramount Pictures changed hands, the premiere was pushed to October 1991, and when the film was given a token platform release. When it did not open to huge numbers, Paramount lost interest. See more »

Terrific in parts
12 September 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This quasi-musical featuring Liza Minelli and Julie Walters is in the classic mode of those "Let's put on a show!" flicks Liza's late mom used to make with Mickey Rooney. Minelli and Walters are both fabulous, and they are lent able support by several veteran comic actresses including MY BIG FAT Greek WEDDING's Andrea Martin and ALLY MCBEAL's Jane Krakowski. If the creaky plot evokes some wincing moments, it is better to simply relax and enjoy the silliness and fun of it all as a group of amateur performers struggles to become a real troupe. And Minelli closes out the movie with one hell of a Big Number. That alone is worth the price of admission.
