Larry W. (Blackettle) from NAMPA, ID
Reviewed on 3/22/2011...
What a terrible film. This has such a big cast I was really looking forward to watching it. The singing and dancing is poor and the camara work is shot from so far away you feel like your standing outside the fence at a drivie in movie. I fell asleep several times and finally just turned it off. Is it racist? It sure feels that way. Not one person of color in any of the background dancers. I'll do the world a favor and throw away this copy. Bad movie.
