As the public continues to argue over whether this film was miscast I will go and see it for a second time in the theater.This was one of very few movies in my lifetime that had me smiling from opening credits to closing credits.Toe tapping and very enjoyable.Julie Walters and Christine Baranski were the perfect addition to this cast and their performances alone make this movie worth seeing.
Buy the soundtrack, skip the movie.

My friend begged me to go. Yes, I knew I was going to see a musical. But really - can they please get through ONE conversation without bursting into song? Just one? The film seemed horribly miscast to me - the movie makers obviously wanted to say, "Hey Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan are in our movie." Too bad they seemed awkward and uncomfortable - let's face it - Meryl Streep is no Dancing Queen.
