Rating: 5/5 -- A fabulously fast-paced cynical comedy in which the straight parts of the movie are -- for a change -- nearly the equal in quality to the musical numbers. Full Review
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 4/5 -- We're still in the money watching this Depression era classic.
Kansas City Kansan
Rating: A -- A seminal, vastly entertaining musical of the early Depression era and a showcase of the eccentric genius of Busby Berkeley in highlights like "We're in the Money." Full Review
The Depression as a period of artists in suspension, Busby Berkeley to the rescue Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Busby Berkeley's imaginatively-staged numbers steal the show; fun to watch, even today.

Rating: A -- Deliciously maddening extravaganza Depression-era Broadway musical. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
The movie thrives and survives on Berkeley's genius; for all his spectacular theatrical flair, he's a sociobiologist in rhythm.
Description by OLDIES.com:
A Broadway producer has the talent, the tunes, the theater and everything else he needs to put on a show - except the dough. Not to worry, say Ginger Rogers and the other leggy chorines decked out in giant coins. Everyone will soon be singing "We're in the Money."
