149min + 7min
Certificate PG

Bob Fosse adapted his Broadway hit with such verve that it kicked new energy into the Hollywood musical. MacLaine is a delight as unlucky-in-love taxi dancer Charity and Davis Jr revels in his scene as new-age guru Daddy. Key highlights include the iconic ‘Big Spender’ and ‘Rich Man’s Frug’ – inspiration for Beyoncé’s ‘Get Me Bodied’ and Austin Powers.
