      Steve D Despite Jimmy there isn't much here. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Audience Member good chemistry between the leads, Stewart & Goddard Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review kevin w In this unhappy experiment everyone (but unhappy people) are in on the groove of hep music (which was swing music at the time). It's as uncomfortable to watch as imagining your Grandmother rapping ("Yeah, baby, yeah! Go cat, go!"), and maybe more so. I couldn't make it through it. Maybe you'll do better. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member the always lovely James Stewart couldnt do no wrong :) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely wonderful, charming sleeper of a musical comedy. It is a favorite of our whole family (including nine kids)! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member What stood out to me and I was really impressed with was that music quality and performances were outstanding. I was surprised when the music boarding house helped out a stranger based upon his performance with a harmonica so much so they were giving Jimmy Stewart a place to live and sacrificing all their musical instruments to be sold off in order to pay for Jimmy Stewart's bail out of jail. I also thought the opening scene stood out as memorable when Jimmy Stewart and his acting uncle tried to have a discussion in the loudest musical room in the building. I really liked the film and was extremely impressed with the musical talent in the film. The music is excellent. The scene at the dinner table is the most impressive scene out of the film to sync the actions so well with the exact timing to the movements. It is a very complex movement for so manny people in the film. What I like most is the way they use the music. It is not presented in a cheesy way where people are just singing to sing but there singing and playing for a reason. This film is also funny. It is ironic how Jimmy Stewarts uncle is almost a complete opposite of Jimmy Stewarts character. His uncle is a wealthy business man, despises music, and has few friends where as Jimmy Stewarts character is in debt, loves music with a talent for the harmonica, and has many friends.
