Going My Way 
Review - Going My Way (1944)
3.5/4 stars

Father Fitzgibbon (Barry Fitzgerald) was getting along in years when the bishop sent Father Chuck O'Malley (Bing Crosby) to help the church out of financial trouble. The two learn to get along in the Best Picture winning film “Going My Way.”

What I like about this movie is that it makes you feel good without forcing it on you. The emotion is subtle and yet impacting. Crosby gives a charming performance, while Fitzgerald gives a classic and lovable one. I might add that both of them won Best Actor and Supporting Actor, respectively. The film won four other awards (Director, Song, Story, and Screenplay), all of which it rightly deserved.

The film does have many faults though. While the story is relatively solid, there are a few events that seem either random or unnecessary. There are also some editing problems, but on the whole the editing is superb. The main problem I had was that it seemed like the film was only made to showcase the singing talents of the cast members, particularly Crosby. The music was remarkable, but it seemed overdone at times.

“Going My Way” is heart-warming, to say the least. It's a must-see for anybody who likes a good story with a lot of good music. Just don't take it as seriously as Father Fitzgibbon.

Acting: 9/10
Writing: 7/10
Video/Editing: 8/10
Audio/Music: 9/10
Entertainment: 8/10

Final Score: 8.2/10
