Director Bob Fosse broke new cinematic ground with this freewheeling, visually stunning story of a lovelorn New York dance hall hostess, Charity Hope Valentine, who dreams of old-fashioned romance but gives her heart to one undeserving man after another.

Excellent - Sweet Charity review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

It is excellent and Shirley MacLaine act so well in this film. The major thing I didn't like is too many close shot that you cannot see the group dance.

Dated musical lacking class - Sweet Charity review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Sorry Shirley but you were too old to play this role and your voice is not good enough. To be fair the songs were poor and the story lacked invention or interest, from the opening scenes you just knew that no man in his right mind would marry a girl like Charity, they would run a mile instead. One good comment - the group dance scenes were excellent and very original.

Terrific film but this DVD is not in the correct aspect ratio - Sweet Charity review by LE

Spoiler Alert

This DVD version moves to the proper widescreen aspect ratio(2.35:1) for some of the songs but frustratingly reverts to a bog-standard 16:9 for everything else. Very annoying. It's a great film but I hope Cinema Paradiso soon get hold of one of the newer Blu Ray versions which retain the proper aspect ratio. My advice (if you are as bothered by these sorts of things as I sadly am) is to buy the Blu Ray rather than rent this from Cinema Paradiso. It IS a great film though.
