Chief Chick Comments
Well, despite the big names, this movie based on a Broadway Musical is corny, a parody of past musicals. The songs all sounded the same. However, the main message about inclusion is worth watching this film. Found on Netflix and nominated for two Golden Globes, James Cordon and best musical.
I agree with the Chief that this musical gets major points for supporting inclusivity. But I can't recommend it for much else. The storyline was a bit predictable -- super-conservative parent wants to ban the prom so a gay student can't attend. But...wait for it...gay student's girl friend is the conservative parent's own daughter. Another thought: is there anything Meryl Streep hasn't appeared in? :o)
At first I found this movie a bit odd, but then I remembered how much I loved campy musicals. Seems like we're getting inundated with political correctness these days, and this movie did the same thing. But I thoroughly enjoyed the song/dance numbers, loved Nicole Kidman's long legs, and overall enjoyed this movie. I'd see it again even.
