• Though this film has plenty of talent in the lead roles, it has an unimpressive story and the songs are not inspiring as a whole. However, the film grew on me as it progressed. By its end, I found myself actually enjoying it.

    The female leads are very strong. Consider Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds and Ann Miller. But the three leading men do not generate as much on-screen magic, leaving the production imbalanced and the love stories uninspiring.

    "On the Town" (1949)---in contrast---is a much stronger film, that possesses energy throughout.
