The story is just enough to make it interesting, but it shines where it matters most: the charm and the musical numbers. Sure, the very end feels cheap and the romantic part of it (the BIGGEST part) feels a bit underdeveloped and one sided, but it still is a whole lot of fun. It is one of the most cinematic musicals put to screen and not once did it occur to me that this was something that was adapted from stage, they really used film to its greatest extent.

It's ridiculous fluff, but at the same time hardly aspires for anything more, and with respect to its function as fluff is an admirable film. It's a riot of colour and movement, never unattractive. I still couldn't swallow this in the right mood, because of the overriding superficiality/artificiality of the narrative and emotional core. If you care about that sort of thing this comes across as obscene.

At times it's hard to imagine why this frothy MGM musical won Best Picture; the story is exceedingly thin, and there's a misogynistic quality to the character of Milo which bothered me. And the numbers themselves are a mixed bag; well done but variably memorable. But there are some great moments, the final ballet is undeniably impressive, and the Technicolor is glorious--justifying the Oscars for the sets, costumes, and cinematography. The Oscar for Alan Jay Lerner's script is another matter.

Shines in the dance department - particularly the final sequence - but otherwise this is probably the most overrated specimen in Minnelli's filmography. While the director's audiovisual chops are ever-impressive, and the Gershwin music has some great moments -- the script is crap, and Gene Kelly's incredible dancing is nearly overshadowed by his incompetence as an actor. I much prefer "Meet Me in St. Louis".

Average-to-decent musical, not very memorable in any way. The movie musical didn't really find its feet as an art form until the sixties.

Beautifully directed, utterly vacuous nonsense, even by musical standards. Nowhere is this more telling than during the lengthy ballet dream sequence, which is completely captivating compared to the underwritten, lazy plot that surrounds it.

Exemplary of an era in which characters are in love simply because they tell us so, as any other plot would be far too complex. The overindulgent dance sequence at the end is the only remotely interesting thing in a film that is ultimately a glorified showreel, featuring boring characters, uninspired songs and stakes that border on farcical. This movie can go to hell for winning Best Picture and ruining the chances of the following year's true technicolor musical masterpiece.

"An American In Paris", for the most part, is a very enjoyable picture, with clever humour, some fantastically inventive song-and-dance numbers and a great feel overall. The end is definitely underwhelming though: the story becomes way too trite for my taste and that final, overstretched number borders on seriously dull. A fun little film overall.
