"Like the movie it comes from, this album is a piece of fluff - but a fine, delightful one. The arrangements and performances by the (excellent) musicians nicely recapture the Big Band flavor they're supposed to; and, of course, the album showcases Kim Basinger's unsuspected talents as a singer, and affinity for the vintage material. That gal could easily earn a living as a crooner - wonder why she never got around to cutting an album in that style. Be warned: once you plop this CD in your player, you'll be coming to it again and again."
One of the Best Movie Soundtracks I have Ever Owned.

"I used to watch The Marrying Man over and over until I made myself nauseous with it. The soundtrack is the best part of the film, and I was delighted to get it when it was newer and not so expensive. If you like big band music polished to a sheen and perfected with the benefit of modern studio technology, I recommend this album highly. The big band sound is great, authentic, and high quality. The real surprise is what a great vocal performer Kim Basinger is on tracks such as "Let's Do it," "Honeysuckle Rose," "Murder He Says," and especially the beautiful "Love is the Thing." Few people know that Basinger actually started out as a singer before she got into modelling and acting. This soundtrack more than demonstrates that she has a very able gift at interpreting song, and she has the added benefit of great studio musicians backing her up."
