I saw it on video the day before the Oscars. I found it to be an awful lot
of fun. Nevertheless, I think I require a second viewing before I can say
whether it was satisfying, or successful. I, like Susan, was greatly put
off by the trailers and things I'd read about it. That's why I didn't see
it in the theater. I rarely enjoy musicals, but I try to give things I
don't like a new go every now and again, The farcical quality made it a
very different type of musical than those of the golden age, which usually
leave me scratching my head or are so sugary as to make my tummy hurt.
