I watched this movie with my wife, because I am quite certain that I wouldn’t have watched it otherwise. That being said, it was fun to quietly hum along with the all-too-familiar songs. I thought the performances were fresh and fun.
Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan provided solid and fun performances, singing, dancing and general merriment. A fair movie, probably above average for a modern musical, but I docked it a star for suggestive action and language that just doesn’t belong in a move targeting a younger audience.
