I'm not a big movie fan and I've never been tempted to watch most old movies, but this is definitely an exception. I know (and love) the song, of course. So I was eager to see if the rest of the movie was as catchy as its title song.
We picked out a rainy evening in April and cuddled up on the couch.
I love the movie more than I thought I would! The story felt very modern and we even had a few laughs. Some of the songs went too long for me, but I guess that's just personal taste.
When the movie was over, I did look it up on IMDB and one of the things that I thought was amazing, was the fact that Gene Kelly actually had a very high fever during the day they were supposed to film the "singing in the rain" scene. So they only had one take to get it right and they didn't have the dance routine ready. So he improvised most of it.
Knowing this makes the movie even better!
