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

    It has that bygone style, in which impossibly innocent ingenues suddenly break into blissfully tuneful song.
  3. Has slow patches and requires a generous suspension of disbelief. But it's also sweet and optimistic -- a welcome antidote to gloom.

    Scrappy, sappy, and appealing.

    This is the first Broadway-sourced movie musical in umpteen years, and you should see it, because the score is gorgeous.
