  • SpacePirate's rating of the film Honolulu

    A good film, mainly due to Powells dance numbers and some Burns and Allen shtick thrown in. It seemed like MGM had no clue what to do with Powell at times. This just seems like such a wrong film for her. She does her best though, and her amazing dance numbers keep it from being a total trainwreck. Worth watching at least once for some of her performances.
