Right off the boat: Incredible music score, and tall-tale telling of Cole Porter's life. Being ripped between many things at once is hard to bear, especially when love plays as a two-sided factor. For this movie, I give it (And this is the first movie to be graded like this by me) 4.5/5 stars! All in all,it's not Bad- it's De-Lovely!;)

Linda Porter: You should learn to trust your audience.
