| Trite Rubbish
I'm beginning to think I'm blind or delusional. Blind: because reading through the user comments, I can't believe my eyes; delusional: because this film seems to've garnered an overwhelmingly positive response, yet I think it's a pile of trite rubbish.

The actors are good looking but they don't exactly fulfill their job descriptions - their acting skills are well and truly second-rate. (I can't say a whole lot more for their singing talent, either.) Walt Disney, in his day, was a pioneer. It's such a shame that much of the garbage being released these days isn't doing Disney any justice. But in a century where film and TV is fuelled by ratings, I suppose the influx of sensational material is hardly surprising.
