Gold Diggers of 1935 ★★★½

It lacks the social punch that made "Gold Diggers of 1933" such a surprise, supplanting it with a frothy farce of a story and stock characters that wear on you pretty quickly (alright, I get it, the old lady is cheap, now MOVE THE FUCK ON).

But the movie is still infectiously cheery, the romantic leads an appealing pair, and, as usual, the dance numbers not of this earth. Not a totally enriching film, but it's still pretty darn entertaining.
