Critic Reviews for Neptune's Daughter

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Neptune's Daughter is a neat concoction of breezy, light entertainment. It combines comedy, songs and dances into an amusing froth.

Once a year, about this time, Metro comes along with a great big beautiful musical, full of slickness and Technicolored plush, models and Xavier Cugat rhythm and Esther Williams in a water ballet, and everybody is happy -- if they like that sort of thing.

The best of the Esther Williams swim-musicals is just bubbly.

March 27, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Although it hasn't much story (or many good jokes), its characters and music are appealing.

Audience Reviews for Neptune's Daughter

back in the day exotic was exotic, forget where it came from, and so in this song and dance marathon south american/african culture is mixed with polynesian/asian for a seamless exotic faraway feel. and why team esther so many times with latin leading men? there must be an answer, but who gives a toot anyway. a fun time, some nice tunes, and, as ever, xavier cugat and his orchestra in a zany, convuluted, sycopated and choreographed...number, zowie! look for the man of a thousand voices in a bit comic part, too.
