| Horribly overacted
I have no wish to be unkind, but the music seems to be the only decent thing about this production. The entire cast of this TV series act as if they were part of a slide show, with one expression each, and overact as though they were performing at the Yankee Stadium to a hearing-impaired crowd with glaucoma. The film's attempts at being funny are lamentable, whereas its attempts at being touching are truly risible. I bought it due to my renewed interest in Dickens after seeing the unmissable 2005 TV version of "Bleak House", and I must say that this version of "The Old Curiosity Shop" is nowhere near it. However can Dickens go so wrong? I should have bought the Peter Ustinov version.

Would You Watch 'Crazy Rich Avengers'?

Captain Marvel star Gemma Chan would ... so she created the ultimate Crazy Rich Asians crossover, and even assigned Avengers roles to co-stars like Henry Golding.
