  • 5 stars "Best musical since Oklahoma!"
  • 5 stars "don't read all the stupid 1 and 2 star comments, bunch of trolls, you can clearly tell by their comments about this movie being a musical and how it would have been better without certain scenes. this is an ADAPTION of real events, some may be changed/exaggerated or what have you. Watch it and enjoy it and leave your prejudice and ignorance at the door."
