Good News Meets Anything Goes
24 November 2002 | by lzf0See all my reviews

This disappointing MGM musical steals some of its plot from "Good News" and the rest from "Anything Goes". Durante is top billed, but he is only used for comic relief for the sappy romantic plot. And there isn't much in the way of comedy. The musical numbers were written by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed and I was looking forward to hearing some buried gems. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Except for Durante's specialty number, which I believe he wrote, the songs are not tuneful or memorable. The performances of these numbers are dreadful. There just isn't much here.
