      Jeremiah Kipp Slant Magazine Indulges in drawn-out hokum. Rated: 2/4 Mar 12, 2005 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 4/5 Oct 3, 2002 Full Review Barbara Shulgasser Common Sense Media Magical Scottish village, singing, dancing, and romance. Rated: 3/5 Jul 25, 2017 Full Review Austin Kennedy Film Geek Central It definitely has a dreamlike quality to it that is simply endearing. The story is charming and the dancing is entrancing. Apart from Johnson's heartless character, this is a very enjoyable movie. Rated: 3/4 Sep 7, 2013 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com The score of Lerner and Lowe's Broadway hit is lovely and Gene Kelly is good but Van Johnson is weak Rated: C+ Apr 3, 2011 Full Review Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Lifeless, downbeat musical fantasy, with a few decent dance numbers. Aug 8, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

      Steve D Some good actors but unconvincing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review Phil S So madly in love with Cyd which frightened the neighborhood until they realized I meant Charrise, not Caesar! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/05/23 Full Review Josh G A dull and drawn out color festival on a studio back lot. It has all the charm of Gene Kelly trying to make this work but the script, music and director giving up and making it long and dull. Meh........ Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/12/23 Full Review s r I finally committed to watching this and it was average, but still a well made musical. The whole plot was weak for me and I couldn't get past that. Saw it on TCM. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Liam D It has musical numbers and dodgy Scottish accent a plenty and it's paint by numbers Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/10/22 Full Review mary c Embarrassingly bad. It is not only the worst Lerner and Lowe book, Gene Kelly is no singer, neither is Syd Charisse. It was lack luster in every way. Too bad Robert Goulet's version done for Armstrong, was it? didn't survive. It was filmed on a crappy soundstage, too, but at least there were real singers involved.
