Filters in Paradise?
- Robert Craig
A great musical, well sung and acted, but nearly ruined by too many camera filters. How can one justify being so artsy about color when facing the most exotic scenery anywhere in the world.

South Pacific (1958)
- Jay Higgins
This has many of the elements that make me dislike musicals. It's overblown, WAY overlong, too many poor songs, too lively and colorful and soooo fake. The acting isn't particularly good. It does have top notch production values, but overall it was too nauseating for me.
I think this is one of the Greatest Musical love stories ever scripted,I think I have seen it at least 80 times .we need more films of this genre,and the world would be better off.
I watched this movie years ago and I love it as much now as I did then. I always loved the song "Younger than Springtime". Whenever I watch the movie I can't wait for it to be springtime! This movie is deffinantly a classic!
I think this movie is the best!!! The scenery and the music is excellant! I am only 18 and I love old movies, especially musicals. I think this is one of the best I've seen. I watched it with my twin sister,and we both LOVED the song "Younger Than Springtime". It's one of our favorite songs now. I also think the other songs by Rogers & Hammerstein are wonderful and beautiful. This movie is definetly worth watching!!!!!!!
'Younger Than Springtime'...
- Bob Galvin-Oliphant
I saw "South Pacific" on a huge theatre screen as a boy, and the beautiful scenery and Rodgers & Hammerstein music amazed me. Seeing it as an adult, those things still impress my senses, but this film is a little dated. However it has to be seen as a product of the 1950's. Mitzi Gaynor sang her own songs, but the singing voices of Rossano Brazzi, John Kerr and Juanita Hall were actually the voices of Giorgio Tozzi, Bill Lee, and Muriel Smith, respectively. A good movie, worth watching.
