Solemplex To me, this movie is perfection.
GamerTab That was an excellent one.
BeSummers Funny, strange, confrontational and subversive, this is one of the most interesting experiences you'll have at the cinema this year.
Cristal The movie really just wants to entertain people.
jonathan-972-150139 I have no words. Every horror you could've conceived about this anathema has come to fruition. For the sake of you and your family, if you loved the original, stay as far away as you possibly can.
samrboman Firstly, I studied and performed in musical theater, so from a purely musical theater perspective I feel it was very good on its own. Not Broadway level by any means, but excellent at a college level. Therefore it gets a star and a half for that. From a story perspective, it was an abomination of the original storyline. Trying to apply political correctness to a 1940 period piece is like making a politically correct version of Les Miserable. The cultural diversity depicted is totally out of character to the time and place. The politicing at the beginning was also totally out of place and suggests a political agenda behind the production. The storyline was butchered from the original. If the period aspect of the production had been changed to a modern time period, and adapted as such, I would have gladly given it 7 more stars. As it stands, the most I can muster is 1 1/2. Unfortunately, there is no 1 1/2 and it doesn't deserve a rounding up, I am left with a one star option.
fripperiffic-48032 This was one of the most bloated, lackluster, and defaming pieces of garbage I have ever witnessed on television. It took the original movie's spirit and soul, and crushed it to a bloody pulp. The musical numbers were far too frequent, and just so freaking generic and bland, I truly don't understand how they could come across as anything less than the same re-hashed Broadway style cut and paste songs. How many times have we seen the frickin can can and heard the same basic show tune compositions? Just nauseating. I tried to endure the first hour with my family, but actually got angry and left the room. I have respect for the work put into a live production, but this should have never seen the light of day.
lisalea-97412 Cash grab for Fox views, plague with commercial spam. It was a book not a sing long. I bet no one can watch the musical for 24hrs straight, get worse.
