  • Anchors Aweigh

    This is the one where Gene Kelly dances with Jerry the Mouse, a classic bit of animation that Disney wouldn't have been ashamed of. more...
  • Annie (PG)

    This millennial update of the 1977 Broadway musical transplants the story from the 1930s to the present and adds hip-hop beats to most of the original songs. more...
  • Annie (PG)

    John Huston is listed as director of this elephantine Ray Stark production, based on the Broadway musical (which was based, in turn, on Harold Gray's Little Orphan Annie comic strip), but this is the kind of overproduced monolith in which even better directors can easily lose their way. more...
  • Belle of the Nineties

    Director Leo McCarey, whose obsessive Catholicism in the midst of anarchic humor sometimes made him the Fritz Lang of comedy, seems slightly ill at ease when faced with the unbounded libido of Mae West in this 1934 production. more...
  • The Big Broadcast
  • The Big Broadcast

    Bing Crosby was once bigger than the Beatles, and this 1932 musical comedy from Paramount must have been an inspiration for A Hard Day’s Night—early in the film there's a slapstick sequence of Crosby being mobbed and chased by crazed women, and the ending hangs on whether he'll make the big radio show in time. more...

  • Corn's-A-Poppin'

    Robert Altman contributed to the script of this 1955 musical comedy, shot in his native Kansas City, Missouri; he later disowned it, and given its rinky-dink sets, hambone acting, and convoluted story logic, you can hardly blame him. more...

    Israeli director Eytan Fox (Walk on Water, Yossi) has never been much of a visual stylist, and this feeble musical comedy all but points a spotlight on his failings. more...
  • Dames

    It takes longer than usual to dispense with the plot (something about a public decency campaign waged against a Broadway show) and get down to the three Busby Berkeley numbers that are every Warner musical's raison d'etre. more...
  • Earth Girls Are Easy (PG)

    This delightful 1989 pop-fantasy musical about Valley girls and extraterrestrials gives the talented English director Julien Temple an opportunity to show his stuff in an all-American context. more...
  • Ecotopia

    In this old-fashioned musical comedy from Turkey, a group of "eco-anarchists" from Istanbul move to an isolated backwater to set up a farming commune; interspersed among the familiar (but still winning) bits of fish-out-of-water comedy are some thoughtful observations about democratic responsibility and environmental stewardship. more...
  • 8 Women (R)

    A factory owner is found dead, and the finger of guilt passes from one occupant of his glamorous home to another: his coolly fashionable wife (Catherine Deneuve), his willful daughters (Virginie Ledoyen and Ludivine Sagnier), his morally loose sister (Fanny Ardant), his miserly mother-in-law (Danielle Darrieux), his neurotic sister-in-law (Isabelle Huppert), and the home's two domestics (Firmine Richard and Emmanuelle Beart). more...
