Would have been better if it wasn't a musical
on January 2, 2014
I really liked the story, and I adore Peter O'Toole (so sorry to hear of his passing) so I gave this 3 stars. But this movie would have been so much better if it had not been a musical. Peter O'Toole couldn't sing, for one thing. And for another, the music was just a big distraction from the charming story. If you LOVE musicals, you may like this. If you HATE musicals, you'll probably hate this movie since it just doesn't make the grade as a musical.
