This musical does not actually seem to be a musical although it is clearly filled with music and dancing. Who knew Ryan Gosling could play piano and dance as well? Set in Los Angeles, Mia and Sebastian, both struggling, meet, meet again, and finally meet and fall in love. Sebastian wants to run a jazz club and Mia aspires to be an actress. Parts of the movie seem almost magical. For the most part very lovely and enjoyable. Men will be split on whether they like this. If they are anti romance and musicals, well they should stay home…perhaps. At times, I was so drawn in that I felt 22 again and falling in love for the first time, or second or third…but definitely the Spring romance we hopefully all remember. Gosling is magnetic, as always, and Stone fantastic as well. No one else has a particularly large part but you will see a bit of John Legend. If you adore Casablanca, maybe you will love this too. I loved it but...

I loved this movie and also thought my wife would love it, which she did. However, she said it is not a chick flick. What am I missing?

I loved the movie. However, my wife did not think this was a chick flick. What do people think? It got five chick's. That would mean it has to be a little bit of a chick flick, at the least.

Personally, I was very disappointed. I had high hopes but thought the movie was disjointed on whether it wanted to be a 1950's musical or a 2016 one. Emma Stone's face seemed rather large and bug-like. Maybe the camera angle. Neither Emma or Ryan could be deemed good dancers (mediocre at best) and the musical numbers were too long for the quality of their skill. Ryan does play a 'wounded bird musician' well which to me was the best redeeming factor of the movie. Chemistry between Ryan and Emma didn't seem to be all that magical to me. I clearly am missing something with all the hype and Golden Globe Awards it won.
