Time Out says

Unusually lavish Paramount musical with a generous quota of 21 Irving Berlin songs (only four of them new). Negligible backstage plot, but the numbers are fine (even if Crosby does groan his tiresomely soulful way through 'White Christmas' and 'How Deep is the Ocean'), with a particularly spirited Carmen Miranda-ish rendering of 'Heat Wave' by Olga San Juan. High spot is undoubtedly Astaire's great interpretation of 'Puttin' on the Ritz' accompanied, courtesy of trick photography, by a chorus line of Astaires each doing a solo act.
