Review: The concept is familiar to anyone who’s seen the trailer, but there’s nothing that really sells it to the uninitiated.

Review: The snappy choreography is the best part of the trailer which seems crassly crafted in some ways. Musicals struggle to find an audience and while this almost succeeds, there’s something inauthentic about it that might create some audience hostility.

Oscar Prospects:

It all depends on how good the film is. If it’s a smashing success critically and at the box office, it could be a major player.
