My Mom was so angry when she came home from watching this movie. She could not think of enough bad things to say about it. She didn't like the music. I said, "Listen ... You were not the intended audience for this movie." I think she was thinking of old Hollywood musicals when she went. It doesn't have Hollywood music, and it doesn't have a Hollywood ending.
I found myself enjoying this movie immesly thanks to the lead duo and their musical numbers. The movie really has a heart and does not end up too cheezy and predictable. Both beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time.
Cripes. Yeah the sort of movie that makes you fall in love with falling in love and with love and with falling and all the rest of it. Great music, great story, and to top it all off they're actually together in real life. Love it!
