  • A wonderful parody of the birth of talkies that has great wit, an intelligent script, terrific music and dancing that can't be beat. show more

  • With the names and versatile talents of Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds, supported by lilting melodies, wonderful dancing and some very funny comedy, the show just can't miss being another MGM top-grosser. show more

  • Singin' in the Rain is a transcendent experience, and no one who loves movies can afford to miss it. show more
