The musical numbers are robust and fun, although there aren't enough of them.

Audience Reviews for Those Redheads from Seattle


Middling musical has some decent performances, the always reliable Agnes Moorehead chief among them, and colorful costumes and photography but forgettable songs and a very weak third act. Not awful but not worth going out of your way to catch either.

I am not a fan of musicals, but I do enjoy 3-D. Well bad music, boring plot, and gimmick less 3-D makes this film hard to watch. Only about 4 scenes in the whole film had a real 3-D effect on it, that's just not enough. I would only give this film 1 star if I watched it in 2-D.
