Fred and Ginger are magical, naturally.  And the movie has a lot of terrific verbal humor, good songs, and wonderful supporting performances from Edward Everett Horton and Helen Broderick.  But I really hate when the comic premise is a wacky misunderstanding.  Especially in a case like this, where the mix-up would be quite easily dispelled, if not for a series of miraculous coincidences and people constantly speaking obtusely.  The film’s more charming aspects kept me from getting too annoyed, but still I enjoyed Swing Time more.  Rating: 7
