Metacritic

75

For all its silliness, the musical also taps into something existential, thanks to its ticking-clock structure. As the hours slip away and impending separation looms over every note, On the Town becomes a bittersweet reminder that all our days are numbered.

Delightful, athletic stuff with some unusual - but wonderful - location shooting. New York never looked better.
