"In a role that was one of her favorites, a 22-year-old Judy Garland headlines this warm turn-of-the-century delight presented for the first time on DVD. Set in 1903, this captivating musical is a slice of Americana about the Smith family's experiences during the year of the St. Louis World's Fair. Directed by Vincente Minnelli (whom Garland married soon after filming, later becoming parents to daughter Liza), Judy Garland has perhaps never been more winning as she pines for 'The Boy Next Door,' comforts seven-year-old Margaret O'Brien (awarded a special Oscar as 1944's outstanding child actress) with 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' and whisks along to the clang-clang-clang of 'The Trolley Song.'"--Container.

Nothing but a big fat Judy Garland vanity project. Its one redeeming quality is the unintentionally hilarious scene where the youngest daughter beheads all her snowmen.

A highlight in Vincente Minnelli and Judy Garland's career, and a treat for classic movie fans. The music is all great, the story is endearing, oftentimes funny, and Judy is at her peak, career-wise. Also, Judy's performance with Margaret O'Brien singing Martin and Blaine's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is poignant. A prime example of the great, classic American musical.

A heartwarming musical comedy from the golden age of Hollywood, "Meet Me In St. Louis" follows a year in the life of a family who live in-where else?-St. Louis. They're all looking forward to seeing the World's Fair come to St. Louis--until Dad announces they're going to be moving to New York before the Fair can open.

It's a fun filled slice of turn-of-the century Americana, particularly the Halloween scene and the Christmas gala. My own personal favorite is "The Trolley Song", but Judy Garland's beautiful, mournful "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" runs a close second in a movie full of romance, comedy, and glorious Technicolor.

Age has not been kind to this film. It feels old-fashioned, and not in the good way.
