    I was actually pleasantly surprised. OK, it's not a 10, but it doesn't deserve a 4. It was entertaining to see this documentary. I found many of the girls to be snobbish and one particular girl was extremely stereotypical, but I had fun laughing at some points.

    A must-see for fans of Broadway's favorite redheaded orphan.
