Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor star in Singin' in the Rain, one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed - filled with memorable songs, lavish routines and Kelly's fabulous song-and-dance number performed in the rain.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...this one's the Taj Mahal, Armstrong's footprint on the moon, the 2001 Arizona-New York World Series, the Clash's London Calling, and the perfect foamy head on an expertly poured Guinness."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"If you've never seen it and don't, you're bonkers."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out
"Kelly's delight - not in his own movements, but in the sheer joy of being able to move - is contagious."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"For humour and sheer energy, no musical betters Singin' In The Rain."
‑ , Film4
"Mandatory viewing for even the casual moviegoer."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"One of the shining glories of the American musical."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Compounded generously of music, dance, color, spectacle and a riotous abundance of Gene Kelly, Jean Hagen and Donald O'Connor on the screen, all elements in this rainbow program are carefuly contrived and guaranteed to...put you in a buttercup mood."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"It's tough to fight the consensus that this is the greatest movie musical of all time (although, to be honest, I would place it second, just a hair below Top Hat), but what's often lost in the praise is that this also qualifies as a great comedy."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"At the time, this film was treated as just another MGM musical but over the years it has gained in stature and is now considered as one of the best American films ever made--Read why."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The greatest musical ever!! A movie everyone should see over and over again. If it doesn't touch you, check your pulse."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"A fancy package of musical entertainment with wide appeal and bright grossing prospects."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Watching Singin' in the Rain is an exuberant, magical experience -- a journey deep into the heart of feel-good territory."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Often considered the finest musical of all time."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Come rain or shine, the Hollywood musical never got any better than this rip-roaring Stanley Donen/Gene Kelly classic."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"A big beautiful film! You can watch it 1000 times and still giggle!"
‑ Emily Blunt, Blunt Review
