| Entertaining.
I can't really understand why everyone's making such a fuss about what a bad film this is- maybe it's because the stage production's so good.

Taken out of that context, this is actually a pretty decent film, especially if you're planning to watch it with kids. The singing/dance numbers are great, and there are some really fun scenes. Granted, the story doesn't string together very well- it's very bitty.

However, I don't think it's at all deserving of the bad rep it's been getting; if you don't go in expecting something Oscar-worthy, you'll probably enjoy yourself. There's a lot of talent in here, and if you try to compare it to the previous incarnations, you're not going to see it.
