Movie Info

In this delightful musical romance, Jeannette MacDonald stars as a countess who would much rather play the tables at Monte Carlo than marry a doltish Austrian prince. Unfortunately, she is on a losing streak. When the touch of a handsome stranger brings her luck, she hires him as her valet.

Critic Reviews for Monte Carlo

All Critics (3)

'A silly story, possible only with music,' yet what despair it masks

September 25, 2009 | Full Review…

A fluff musical that never quite works.

February 17, 2008 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Features the best screen performance by Jeanette MacDonald, an actress usually notable for her great soprano instead of for her acting chops.
