    Billed as the happiest musical ever made, Easter Parade features an early dance number in a toy store that's guaranteed to make you smile, so maybe the hype is true! Otherwise, it has the same slim plot most Fred Astaire movies do. He walks down the street, trains a new dance partner (Judy Garland), is romantically standoffish, and wants to get married by the time we get to the last scene (not all characters necessarily arc, so it may leave you hungry for scenes that never were). It's all just an excuse to do song and dance numbers. Irving Berlin's songs are often silly and dependent on rhymes, but like Astaire's feet, they're light and fluffy (my favorite is the one with the hobos). The reason to watch this one, however, is the attention given to the bit parts. Every character in the service industry is given a little comedy to play, like they find this whole romantic musical foolish. The highlight is the restaurant waiter Fran├žois and his incredible salad. One of the great random scenes in all of cinema. 1 year 1 month ago
