This review is from: Swing Time [VHS] (VHS Tape)
In my opinion this is easily the best of the Astaire and Rogers films.
It follows the basic Fred and Ginger formula - boy meets girl, boy falls for girl but she doesn't return the sentiment, boy wins girl over with song and dance - but the thing that lifts it head and shoulders above the rest (yes, even Top Hat) is the perfect balance of comedy with the best song and dance routines the pair ever commited to film. There are no dud numbers, no tiresome sub-plots that make you want to reach for the FFD button, just one classic after another and some genuinely amusing moments.
I'll simply never tire of watching it.
