Rating = B+
As I watched this movie, I couldn't help but think
about the movie Chicago and how much better edited this one was, so that the
song and dance numbers had visual coherence. The movie looks great, with
clever interspersing of realistic and stagy scenes. The acting is uniformly fine, and
the singing is uniformly excellent (even amazing in some instances). The movie
is a lot of fun to watch, and the music has a strong beat. However, the music
is also (with some notable exceptions) not very good, in my view.
