“Outrageous musical numbers… old-time movie musical”

“Outrageous musical numbers evoke most of the laughs in this movie funfest. Eat your heart out, Rockettes, because here comes a little old ladies’ chorus line (‘Along Came Bialy’) to rival your success. Watch out, real-life producers, for an actor named Gary Beach (‘Heil Myself’). Never, and I mean never, hire him if you want your play to flop! And stop spinning in your grave, Florenz Ziegfeld. Those ‘Springtime for Hitler and Germany’ showgirls are all in good fun. Finally, congratulations to director Susan Stroman, for making this Broadway gem into a film that old-time movie musical fans like me can cheer about.”
