      Kate Saccone Vague Visages It may not be the most innovative or exciting of Kelly’s films, but it’s an unpretentious movie that delights in the pure pleasure of musical entertainment, from the outright silly to the romantically sincere. Dec 12, 2023 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine One of the better musicals, largely due to the winsome singing and acting of Judy Garland as a country lass whose barn is taken over by a bunch of stage-struck screwballs. Oct 18, 2019 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The classic number belongs squarely to Judy, as she's nothing less than sensational as she belts out "Get Happy." Rated: 3/4 May 11, 2019 Full Review Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilm ...has a certain looseness compared to other MGM musicals. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 16, 2018 Full Review Susan Granger www.susangranger.com Rated: 4/5 Jul 14, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 4/5 Nov 5, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alec B A silly, predictable trifle, but for Garland and Kelly (as well as the dance sequences) I will always enjoy it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/10/23 Full Review Dylan M Fun, and Entertaining. The Portland Fancy is the best part of this film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/28/23 Full Review Steve D I am not a fan of the cast but this is ok. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/24/23 Full Review CodyZamboni Movie is fun, energetic, with amazing choreography and one great song, Get Happy. Hot 1950's ladies offer lots of eye candy. In a lot of scenes, Judy Garland looks healthier with more weight on her bones. But to me, the ending is too abrupt, but understandable knowing the troubled production and Garland's drug problems. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Audience Member This picture is so entertaining. How can you miss with Judy Garland and Gene Kelly? Great fun Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/21 Full Review s r A feel good musical that didn't quite ascend to something more than that.
