    ★★★★½ Watched 11 Oct, 2015

    "A kiss on the hand maybe, quiet continental. But Diamonds are a girls best friend."

    I love a good old time fashioned musical. You know the ones I'm talking about right? The overly produced musical numbers, the sexist and nostalgic attitudes of the past. The sassy woman and their charming men.
