A marvelous restoration of the 30-year-old musical, precisely the kind of high-class popular entertainment that Hollywood can't seem to make these days.

The well-nigh-irresistible...My Fair Lady...comedically softens Shaw's ending but nevertheless nearly single-handedly transcends the material's sexist leaning through the sheer humanism of Hepburn's deeply felt performance. [Blu-ray]

The Blu Spot

Despite a somewhat flawed and erratic third act, My Fair Lady rises on the strength of its lush costumes and settings, as well as several great and memorable songs, turning this into a musical that one can't help but enjoy in all of its grandeur.

I can't stand Audrey Hepburn's voice, those songs, or Rex Harrison's being. Why, oh why, did it win that Oscar?
