Critical receptionEdit

TCM wrote, "episodic in the extreme, Just for Fun plays like an evening of Vaudeville, with the various singing acts punctuated by broad comic bits that are more miss than hit but retain, at least at this distance, an undeniable vintage charm...sweet relief comes in the form of the assembled musical talent, whose contributions are well-staged by director Gordon Flemyng."[3]
