“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.” (Film.com)
If you’ve seen Singin’ in the Rain before, it’s time to see it again. And if you’ve never seen it—especially on the big screen—drop everything and get your ticket now. Smart, funny, charming, and 100 percent entertaining, it’s simply one of the greatest films ever made. With memorable songs (including “Make ’Em Laugh” and “Good Morning,”), lavish routines, and Gene Kelly’s iconic song-and-dance number performed to the title song, it’s also got some thoughts on its mind as it portrays the movie business making the bumpy transition to sound. Kelly’s costars include the delightful Debbie Reynolds, the extraordinarily athletic Donald O’Connor, and the hilarious Jean Hagen as a silent movie star who has an especially hard time being in a talkie.
