Mattie Lucas From the Front Row Berkeley was fired from the film after choreographic the "I Got Rhythm" finale, and as a result the film never quite achieves the same effortless charm his earlier collaborations between Rooney and Garland Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 1, 2020 Full Review Bill Newcott Movies For The Rest Of Us Judy Garland, then 21, and 23-year-old Mickey Rooney were clearly pushing the envelope when they played crazy kids who put on a show one last time. Rated: 3/5 Jul 29, 2020 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Here's another Rooney-Garland confection where not much of interest happens when everyone isn't singing or dancing. The Gershwin score is tops, though. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 27, 2020 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The highlight of the film is all the bouncy Gershwin brother tunes. Rated: B- Jun 12, 2010 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis The movie is helped by music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin. Rated: 7/10 Oct 3, 2007 Full Review Michael W. Phillips, Jr. Goatdog's Movies [Garland and Rooney] seem like old pros at making the plot machinations seem at least a little fresh. Rated: 3/5 Apr 22, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member ***DATED, BUT A REMINDER OF THE INNOCENCE, SELF-POSSESSION AND JOY OF ITS TIME*** Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Without a doubt the best of the Garland-Rooney MGM musicals, and their last film in which they starred together; great Gershwin score (from the Broadway musical) is a joy to hear, topped by Judy's "But Not for Me," and the Busby Berkeley-staged finale to "I Got Rhythm."
