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.
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!
Over-rought cliche hipster-adaptive possibilities aside, all in all a nice refreshment for the late musical model. Granted I don't need to see it again, now that the music is and was everywhere, and a broadway production and sequel in tow. Your star count is waning friends.
The soundtrack is the obvious standout of this movie but the simplicity of the story and the way it's presented to the audience through a nameless protagonist gives this cliché story of boy meets girl an interesting and emotionally relatable spin.
I recommend this to music and film lovers alike.
