    Sorry, the beloved "Singin' in the Rain" isn't the finest of the legendary MGM musicals. "The Band Wagon'' has better music, better dances, better direction, more lavish sets and costumes and a wittier script (by the same writers).

    The musical becomes a frenetic meditation on pop art versus high art, coming down hard on the side of the former.

    Widely considered one of the greatest movie musicals of all time, Vincent Minnelli's "The Band Wagon" connects a jumble of comedic backstage Broadway shenanigans with mix-matched show tunes via Fred Astaire's impeccable dance routines.

    A fun musical with creative choreography, but far too little substance.


    July 27, 2006

    Minnelli's best musical is sparked by witty allusions to real-life showbiz persona like pretentious actor Jose Ferrer and birlliant but aging dancer Fred Astaire, the film's star, who shines when dancing, both with Cyd Charisse and alone.

    On the whole it's one of the best musicals ever made.

    ...it's hard to dislike something so cheerful and uplifting as this movie.

    A love song for the narcissistic, and theater people are sure to eat up the film, commentary, extras, and first rate DVD packaging.

    It has its moments and the stars are good, but it's really overrated.

    "the undisputed highlight of Astaire's post-Rogers career"
