Manages to honor the theatricality of the source yet becomes a fully cinematic experience. A gem.

Scrappy, sappy, and appealing.

Fans starving for some song and dance celluloid may be satiated, but this movie version really shows the material's age.

It seems like another misstep - the story just doesn't hold up to Ritchie's treatment.
50
A brave but ultimately futile attempt at adapting a piece that is so quintessentially theatrical that it defies translation to another medium.
50
Although dated, it's not a bad musical.

Shot five years ago by director Michael Ritchie. No release until now. Uh-oh. Disaster? Pretty much.
