Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Audiences in 1937 couldn't get enough of Waikiki Wedding, a tremendous hit in its day. To say that it's dated now is an understatement, but for those looking for a pleasant, undemanding little musical, Waikiki will more than fit the bill. Some have observed that this film plays like an Astaire-Rogers film with out Astaire and Rogers, and to some degree it does: it has a similar antagonists-who-must-be-brought-together set up, and both the main and the supporting characters could be dropped into one of the famous duos films with only minor alterations. But Waikiki doesn't have the singular dancing of the team, nor does it have the superior scores associated with their films. Waikiki's songs are good, but they are not special. And though Bing Crosby does quite well as the star, Shirley Ross lacks that extra zing that his co-star should have; she's good, but not outstanding and not a match for Crsoby. Martha Raye and Bob Burns certainly impress as the comic duo, but their styles -- especially Raye's -- may strike modern viewers as a bit overblown. Still, Waikiki is breezy and playful; if it's not a top drawer musical, it's still good fun.
