The modern day equivalent of a Busby Berkeley musical. Lightweight, fun, and glamor to spare. It's not on Berkeley's level in terms of filmmaking skill, but it serves a similar purpose. A frothy, glittery good time.
Even though everyone around me hated this movie, I somehow enjoyed it. I have to say that I did not pay any money to see this movie and this could simply be a reason for an additional star. It was an enjoyable 90 minutes of television. If only the director chose not to turn the movie into an Xtina show, and put some effort in developing other characters, I could have even considered another star.
Two hours!?!? Are you serious? Haven't these people heard of something called 'Editing'? I wanted something mindless and trashy, and boy, did I get what I bargained for. Unfortunately, I was also hoping for entertainment. The male romantic lead was a little off - which is quite an achievement for such a hot guy. He did have a pretty charming little strip segment that brings new meaning to the term 'product placement'
You get what you pay for, especially with 2-for-1 drinks of watery cola-colored whiskey and bar stained elbow wrinkles, too tired to clap, less interested by the second inning. Score tied at zero, no ups, no downs, don't bother.
