      Zinjx W Another Great Performance by Leslie Caron, but not my kind of a movie with old Fred Astaire as "sugar daddy" he is too good for that kind of storytelling. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/18/23 Full Review steve d I just find it uncomfortable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The best musical romance movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member This teaming of Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron should have been a cause for celebration; unfortunately, the film is slow-moving and the romance is creepy - the only assets are a score by Johnny Mercer (including the Oscar nominee "Something's Gotta Give") and choreography by Roland Petit. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Lovely to see a film that shows that love knows no boundaries. Also, very nice dancing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member The song and dance is nothing out of the ordinary for Fred Astaire. The story was kind of creepy though. It was a colorful movie that wasn't bad. I think it is similar in style to An American in Paris, but Daddy Long Legs isn't as good.
