Movie: Singin' in the Rain

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 9
Main characters: Don, Cosmo, Kathy
Genre: Musical, comedy (somewhat), life, romance
Primary actors: Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds
Length: Not quite 2 hours
Based on: I believe it was inspired by the song "Singin' in the Rain" but other than that...
Time period: 1920's
Year it came out: 1952
My overall opinion: I enjoyed it a lot! Some of the costumes on the women were way too much leg, and I seem to remember reading that some of the dancing was a bit sensual (though I didn't notice that it was terrible), but other than that, this was a really fun movie! The songs, like Singin' in the Rain, Good Morning, Make 'em Laugh, All I Do Is Dream of You, they've been running through my head constantly ever since. :) Definitely catchy! I recommend this movie.

Oh, fast fact. Cyd Cherisse, who stars as the sweet and pretty heroine in Brigadoon, (one of my favorite films) was also in this one. However, she was a much different character. One of my least favorites in the movie.

Oh, yes, the music is SO catchy. And after getting some of the songs today onto my Mp3 player, I know what I'll be listening too! I got my favs, except Make 'Em Laugh. ;) Which as you know, Ang, should be my theme song. LOL!

This has been on of my family's favorite films for a long time, it's such a classic musical! I love the songs and it never fails when I'm out in the rain "Singin' In The Rain" pops into my head and when it's morning and I'm trying to wake my sister up "Good Morning" comes to mind! The songs are terribly catchy and the actors were just fabulous!

By the way the photo of Cyd Cherisse isn't showing up.

9?!?!?!?! How can it be a 9? This is one of the all time best movies! This should be an 11! :)
If for nothing else, at least for the imortal pole leap.

Lol, Josh. I must say I prefer Pride and Prejudice. I suppose we must agree to disagree!
