No body in High School breaks into song for no reason - Beast1499
This is a musical? They never Break into song or anything
Entitled teenagers complaining about how the world doesn't cater to them... But it's in SONG, so it's okay.
Worst musical ever. All versions of the songs are horrible
Very overrated. That's all I can say.
It just feels wrong without the original cast. Aside that it's fine I guess. Kinda duller than the movie
Darn I LOVE this show! It may be only my opinion but I love it so much.
So! Stupid! I couldn't bear to watch it for very long.
Come on you guys! The movie's crappy, true, but the show is a masterpiece!V1 Comment
Where to start? Well first of all, the land of Oz looks like crap, every shot is filmed 300 feet away, the tin man has an ass-numbingly slow song, when Michael Jackson sang they tied him to a pole instead of letting him dance, speaking of which, if this version of Oz was supposed to be like a version of New York why the hell was there a corn field? The wicked witch doesn't make a single appearance until the climax, the flying monkeys got turned into a motorcycle gang, and just when you think Dorothy is finally going home, she stops and sings another song, in which the entire time it just shows her standing in front of the camera staring you down
Crappy movie but the live show is good
Peter Bogdanovich's tribute to Cole Porter musicals starring Cybill Shepherd and Burt Reynolds? It's a dreary waste of time.
The ghastly 1973 remake of Frank Capra's classic, this features an awful score by Burt Bacharach, second rate choreography by Hermes Pan, and stars that great movie musical couple, Liv Ullmann and Peter Finch. Didn't they learn anything from Goodbye Mr. Chips (1971)?
MGM's entry into those movie musicals that ended the 1960s starring an actor who can't sing in the leading role. This time it was Peter O'Toole, given fine support by Sir Michael Redgrave. True, Petula Clark as his love interest, playing a music hall star, gave it some credibility, but it's long and tedious. Along with Lost Horizon, it proves that James Hilton's material doesn't sing. What next? A musical version of Random Harvest?
$35 million dollars! Everyone complained about movies like Doctor Doolittle and Hello, Dolly being overblown elephantine movies, but they were still entertaining. This movie, directed by John Huston, is one of the coldest, most mean-spirited and overblown movie musicals of all time. Taking, what is basically a charming stage musical, this one stars Albert Finney, Bernadette Peters, Tim Curry, Geoffrey Holder and the marvelous Anne Reinking. The only one who finds a comic strip sensibility, and the only reason to sit through this Turkey, is Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan. In the opening number, she appears to be single-handedly in charge of 200 little girls. No wonder she is being driven nuts! Released at the same time as Steven Spielberg's love letter to aliens, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, there's no excuse for this $35 million disaster!
