Reason to see: I'm a sucker for musicals

Oh my, what a fun movie. Although I don't think the premise sure wouldn't fly these days, it was still a joy to watch. Fun songs, charming characters and of course unlikely situations. I especially enjoyed the character Milly, I thought she was really inspirational - she didn't take any crap, but she also didn't give up on anyone and believed everyone could be a better person. I think that is what I got most out of this film.

Shannon's Overall View:
I enjoyed it
I would watch it again
I'd recommend it, especially to fans of musicals
