We gave it a B-

As in Rio, Roberta has the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers team turning over much of the floor to a less interesting pair: This time it’s Randolph Scott and Irene Dunne, who are running a fashion line in Paris. Too much plot, too many pretty dresses, and not enough dancing make this the weakest Fred and Ginger.
