  • Poster: C

Review:

At first, I wasn't sure if I was looking at a design from any number of other similar films. Then I realized that it was because it is virtually the same...that realization only took a fraction of a second, thoguh.

  • Trailer: B-

Review:

If it weren't for the rather glorious dance routines on display in the trailer, this would be a rote exercise in paint-by-numbers storytelling, hitting every plot convenience we've seen thousands of times over in similar films. I might watch it just for the dance numbers, though.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
