Critics reviews

A neat little story, predictable in parts, still manages to slyly toe the line between wholesome Broadway razzle-dazzle and ribald fun. The iconic opening number (“It’s a helluva…”) affords a rare look at the post-War Brooklyn Navy Yard, one of a half-dozen other tourist traps captured during nine pick-up days on the sidewalks of New York.

Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen take the MGM musical outdoors, the New York minute is stretched to 24 hours… Scorsese has a flashing memory of the Brooklyn Bridge chase in Mean Streets, from the top of the Empire State Building to the Coney Island fairground is one long carnival. The ascending crane at the close contemplates an industrial cityscape transformed by music, and perhaps the It’s Always Fair Weather hangover on the horizon.
