Another dud, moreover the squandering of a great talent or two. As the over rated Monsieur Jourdan would say "what a bore!" Boy, I sure can pick 'em!

Great songs. But can't quite understand the relationship between a girl and a man.

an absolutely delightful musical, set in the glorious Paris of the Belle Époque, the very early 20th century, with glistening costumes, elaborate sets, and a cast to make inexhaustible magic despite the controversial topic, where Maurice Chevalier cavalierly, and ever so effortlessly, nevertheless walks away with the show, the epitome of the French boulevardier roué

Gigi. An amazing movie though not suitable for children younger than 12, has excellent music, excellent acting and excellent scenery! A Five-Star Movie!

A wonderful musical. Reminds me of a more charming version of the unbearably long My Fair Lady but with worse music. The length of this one is much shorter and Paris has never been better.
