An original musical portrait of American composer Cole Porter, filled with his unforgettable songs.

Through elaborate production numbers and popular hits, Porter's elegant, excessive past comes to light - including his deeply complicated relationship with his wife, Linda Lee Porter, who was his inspiration.

I like the DVD. I recommend it to all ages. It is not too sexual. There is no violence. The music was nice. It is emotional shallow. The biography was well done. It represents what people will do for love in their life.

Top-notch production - costumes, music, lavishness - sensitive biography of Cole and Linda Lee Porter. Wonderful entertainment.

This is the story of the life of composer Cole Porter. A little weak plot-wise, but gorgeous costumes and snappy musical numbers.

The story isn't anything great, but Kevin Kline does a masterful job of acting his "age" at the various points. The production is excellent and imaginative, seamlessly moving between the revue and the life.

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!;)

As a big Cole Porter fan, I had high hopes for this movie, and I wasn't disappointed. Worth watching.

Linda Porter: Your song was absolutely delirious.
Cole Porter: Thank you. I'm never quite sure if they get the joke, especially when it's on them.
Linda Porter: You should learn to trust your audience.
Cole Porter: I trust it. I just wish I could expand it.
