Singing in the Rain

Many people think of Singing in the Rain as a family movie. Considering such content as this, does that make sense? I understand the part this sequence plays in Don's decision about Kathy, but how old do you have to be go "get" it and get beyond the steamy nature of the thing? Opinions?

Oh right, that sequence. We all tend to find those type of sequences in that era/genre of movie weird and just skip them when watching them with the family.

I see. Eviscerates the story, though, since I think it is related to Don's ultimate choice. Or am I wrong?

What is a family movie anyway?

Beautiful sequence by the way.

HeeHee. Can I be semi-intentionally difficult?

Hmm...I usually hate sexual things but couldn't get it out of my mind that he was dancing with the Jolly green Giant. I want to eat green beans now. I think of it in almost cartoon terms. The actors are caricatures...stereotypes. She is supposed to be nasty and seductive. Everyone knows what she is and the movie isn't making her out to be virtuous. She is supposed to be bad news.
