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.
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 PE
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.
