This is an updated classic MGM musical executed brilliantly. Don't expect any intricate plot. This is a languid train ride that take one from point A to a very precise destination. This is the Beat Picture that you will love to see over and over, again. Finally!
I think I'm probably the only person I know who didn't like this movie as much as all the hype tells you so.
For me, parts of the story dragged and I almost fell asleep. I also wasn't that caught up in the emotions during some of the sadder/more tender moments, and I wasn't particularly impressed with the acting either.
I dunno. Maybe it's just me. I still give it a solid 3 stars out of five though. It was nice, just wasn't that nice.
