Spirituality and Practice says,
Thousands of talented dancers and singers flock to New York City every year with hopes of landing a role in a Broadway musical.... This screen adaptation of the Broadway musical offers a loving tribute to these "gypsies" and the gusto they bring to their craft.Time Out doesn't like it. DVD Talk calls it a "badly filmed play" and the "movie non-event of 1985". Roger Ebert gives it 3 1/2 stars.
