Rating: 2/5 -- The music is not exceptional, the rendering of the songs lacks variety, and the pace, under Richard Fleischer's direction, is slow and without surprise. Indeed, toward the end it is perfunctory. Things happen mechanically. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Not even a decent performance from Richard Attenborough can save this disappointing production. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- The lush sets and presentation are a big disconnect with the silly story, but that ultimately turns out to be part of the joy of the movie.

Rating: 3/5 -- Glossy, overlong, but still fun kids' musical with Rex Harrison in good form.
