What to Know

Critics Consensus

With the combined might of Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and Irving Berlin working in its favor, Holiday Inn is a seasonal classic -- not least because it introduced "White Christmas" to the world.

Angie Errigo Empire Magazine Between the toe twinkling and ivory tickling it's still a comfortable, cosy way to pass an afternoon. Rated: 3/5 Dec 12, 2014 Full Review TIME Magazine Crosby's easy, casual banter is just the right foil for Astaire's precision acrobatics, his wry, offbeat humor. Dec 5, 2008 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Loaded with a wealth of songs, it's meaty, not too kaleidoscopic and yet closely knit for a compact 100 minutes of tiptop filmusical entertainment. Nov 27, 2007 Full Review Elena de la Torre Cine-Mundial Everything here is entertaining and attractive, with magnificent musical numbers and beautiful songs. [Full Review in Spanish] Sep 17, 2019 Full Review Scott Nash Three Movie Buffs Although all the holiday's are covered, this is really a Christmas movie at heart. Overshadowed by its more famous (and overrated) remake, Holiday Inn deserves more credit than it gets. Rated: 3/4 Dec 4, 2013 Full Review Dick Fiddy Radio Times This classic musical paired Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire for the first time. Rated: 4/5 Dec 4, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

Isaiah Y Memorable dance numbers from Fred Astaire Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Vince D A fun movie with 2 Legends. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Tamara H I mean except for the blackface number it's what you'd expect. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review Pete V Great Christmas movie. The scene with Astair dancing and the firecrackers is amazing. Even 80 years later despite all the technology we have , it is still stunning to watch . I watch it every year. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/11/23 Full Review acsdoug D I'm not used to seeing Fred Astaire as the jerk, but the dance numbers are good. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/23/23 Full Review Bourn1ad It's a little outdated especially in one scene. But aside from that it's a great musical and has a lot of ❤️. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/22 Full Review Read all reviews
