Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...Kiss Me Kate had nothing on Singin' in the Rain."
‑ Jessica Winter, Village Voice
"A little weak in acting at first, but warms up nicely. Quite entertaining. And even more welcoming in 3D."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"A fun musical with tuneful Cole Porter songs and a fun script."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"The picture's brio is quaint and disarming, for the most part getting its laughs when it needs them."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"The theatrical antics are a bit forced and the musical numbers aren't the best in the history of musical cinema, but this still stands as an 'important' film of its era, albeit a minor and relatively forgettable one."
‑ Christopher Null,
"A treat, on no account to be missed."
‑ George Perry,
"A mostly zippy showbiz paean."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"One of the all-time best movie musicals, with Fosse choreography and Porter's vunderbar music."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"Thanks to the genius of George Sidney at the helm, there's never a dull moment nor a single instance of a song or dance simply shoehorned in with no bearing on the story. So brush up your Porter if you must have a background before seeing this, and go!"
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
