Bloody hell Gene Kelly was a genius.
I only watched this because I was curious about the bit they use in Wall-E and WOW! As a man who really doesn't appreciate the musical this is a cracking bit of cinema.

Deserving of its best picture nomination in 69.
This was a rewatch in 2D with friends and even though I focused on some problem areas like the 'Short Round' character and the lack of Tony in the suit I still enjoyed it as much as the first watch. It's better than 2 and not as good as 1.
And Paltrow with her toned abs in yoga pants? schwiiiinngg!!!
