LOL aw man!! Yeah I forgot to mention the extreme high-level pranciness. That movie barely even has a plot. Too bad you didn’t make it because the end is the best part – it descends into a dialogue-free ballet for like the last half hour. One thing that always creeped me out about this movie though – why is it okay that three 40 year old men are lusting after a 19 year old? Granted one of them is Gene Kelly, the dreamiest dreamboat of the 50’s, but still, ew.
