good variety in Varieties on Parade
20 February 2011 | by froberts73See all my reviews

No this ain't not no MGM musical. Big names do not abound. Colors are black and white. Plot? They don't even try for one unless you count the four minutes or so where ushers and other somewhat pretty types look you in the camera, take you to your seat and tell you they hope you will enjoy the show.

And, you will. There are variety acts after variety acts and, with one or two exceptions, all of them are thoroughly enjoyable.

I will not bring up the obvious - you know - mentioning Ed Sullivan. At any rate it's fun to sit for an hour in awe and wonderment - those are two towns in Arkansas - and enjoy the entertainment without a plethora of annoying commercials. Gotta pee? Hurry. This fun flick moves without letup.

It's another VCI - very cool individuals - presentation that is rated G - for - well - great.
