This is one of my favourite musicals to watch. What is it about musicals that is just so appealing? The story is, as always, unbelievable, but the music and dancing more than makes up for that.

The eldest of seven brothers heads into town one day with the intention of leaving with a bride---despite the fact that people barely know him, and despite the fact that he hasn't courted a... read more

It is a profoundly sexist musical, with splendid choreography and direction; it’s also got a great score with memorable tunes.

Best musical of the 50s...

Seven Brides For Seven Brothers is a beautiful classic musical that has touched many hearts for many years. It certainly did touch mine and it touched it hard. Everything about this musical was just too beautiful to watch. It is a very underrated musical that I personally think should be treasured and loved as much as Singin' In The Rain. Seven Brides For Seven Brothers has only one slight flaw an... read more

Description: Well, bless my beautiful hide! Director Stanley Donen invests this rollicking musical with a hearty exuberance. Howard Keel, with his big-as-all-outdoors baritone, stars as a bold "mountain man" living in the Oregon woods who brings home a bride (plucky songbird soprano Jane Powell) to his six slovenly brothers. Taming the rambunctious brood, Jane proceeds to make gentlemen of them so they can woo sweethearts of their own. But old habits die hard: their flirting gives way to fighting in the film's celebrated barn-raising scene, a lively acrobatic dance number exuberantly choreographed by Michael Kidd. Big brother chime ... (more)

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

“I’m on the fence about this one. Stanley Donen’s direction is effervescent, Michael Kidd’s choreography is unique and lively, the score is pleasant if unmemorable, but that story is just so aggressively archaic. I suppose the sexist overtones of the film’s second half could be overcome with more distinct characters, but both the brides and the brothers are largely shades of beige with no discerning traits or personalities to speak of.   Seven Brides for Seven Brothers exists more as eminently watchable than as a must-see classic for me. It’s missing a distinct sense of something more that is easily identifiable in more obvious musical classics like Singin’ in the Rain or A Star Is Born. It’s main distinguishing feature is Michael Kidd’s choreography, which is a flurry of” read more
