Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 10/19/1994
"...Near-perfect musical comedy....It's funny and fast-paced..."
Total Film - 12/01/2000
"...A movie about movie-making, in which sound is married to image, it smoothly integrates its several superbly choreographed song-and-dance numbers into the storyline..." -- 5 out of 5 stars
Chicago Sun-Times - 02/14/1999
"...There is no movie musical more fun that SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, and few that remain as fresh over the years....SINGIN' IN THE RAIN is a transcendent experience, and no one who loves movies can afford to miss it..."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/27/2002
"...More than ever, the sheer formal discipline of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, from costumes to choreography, feels like a lost art..."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2001
"...Sublime..."
Premiere - 12/01/2003
"[O]ne of the greatest movies about Hollywood. With in-jokes galore and effortless breaks into song and dance..."
Total Film - 11/01/2012
5 stars out of 5 -- "[P]erhaps SINGIN's most remarkable achievement is how fresh it feels 60 years on..."

Plot Synopsis:

This joyful musical sparks the desire to splash around in puddles and smile at the sky. Musical numbers glide from poignant ("The Broadway Ballet") to gleeful ("Singin' in the Rain"), with Gene Kelly lighting up the screen in scene after scene.
Hollywood in the 1920smust adapt: The unexpected popularity of talkies pushes studios and stars to reinvent themselves. Lockwood (Kelly) and his lovely but screechy-voiced costar's first talkie is a disaster in previews, but he convinces the studio to turn THE DUELLING CAVALIER into the musical THE DANCING CAVALIER. But this solution means dubbing his costar's voice, ensuring sparks will fly!
