      Steve D Too long, too cluttered. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/31/23 Full Review Audience Member fluffy but fun remake of 'grand hotel' of sorts Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review ashley h Weekend at the Waldorf is an entertaining film. The cast is incredible which includes Lana Turner, Ginger Rogers, Van Johnson, and Walter Pigeon. The screenplay is well written and witty. Robert Z. Leonard did a good job directing this movie. Weekend at the Waldorf is a must see. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty mediocre effort. At times it degenerated into a hotel advertisement for the Waldorf Astoria, complete with voiceovers! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Fluffy remake of Grand Hotel, on its own enjoyable but a mere patch on the original. Ginger and Walter come off best, Lana is at the peak of her beauty but is poorly matched with Johnson, it's highly unlikely that the doofus that he plays would ever be able to attract a dish like her. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A truly grand film. A remake of Grand Hotel I hear! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
