Trivia

The first adaptation to include the title song as part of the story (a group of teenage girls sing it near the beginning as a farewell to Conrad Birdie). The song is not part of the original Broadway score and was added for the 1963 film. In that version, Ann-Margret sang the song as a prelude and reprised it as the film ended. See more »

Goofs

The telephone that Albert J. Peterson (Jason Alexander) uses in Harry MacAfee's (George Wendt) home has a modern plug-in cord, which was not yet in use in the period in which this film is set. See more »

could Vanessa Williams be any better?
10 July 2003 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

when you add up all the aspects from the movie---the dancing, singing, acting---the only one who stands out as the best in the cast is Vanessa Williams...her dedication, energy and timeless beauty make Rosie the perfect role for her. Never have i ever seen someone portray Rose with such vibrancy! Vanessa's singing talent shows beautifully with all the songs she performs as Rose and her acting skills never cease to amaze me! Her dancing is so incredible, even if as some people say the choreography was bad---her dancing skills were displayed better than ever before! I'd recommend this version over the '63 just because i find that although lengthy the acting by Vanessa is superb-----not to mention the fact that Jason Alexander and the rest of the cast are very impressive as well (with the exception of Chynna Philips...what in hell were they thinking when they cast her?)

All in all I'd say this version is wonderful and I recommend that everyone see this version!
