|United Artists | Release Date: September 22, 2000||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
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.
A brave but ultimately futile attempt at adapting a piece that is so quintessentially theatrical that it defies translation to another medium.
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.
