    LOL!
    I enjoy the DVD I have of the original play. Saw it live on Broadway with my family when they brought it back a couple of years ago. I've seen the story bashed as lacking a strong plot, but I see it as related vignettes, and not a long form story. I also think people look at this "Movie" the wrong way. I see this as a play on screen, and as such the CGI is just more advanced makeup and set design. I'm looking forward to it myself, hoping the singing, choreography, and dancing live up to the original :smile:

    Why do film makers keep trying to make musicals work on screen?

    They work fine if they were written for screen. Its the adaptation that rarely works. Although some notably have.

    Yes, like maybe 2001's Moulin Rouge or Across The Universe. But adapting a stage play to screen is tricky, and a musical doubly so. Mostly they suck. It's just more evidence of Hollywood's lack of creativity.
