  • 5 stars "Only movie I have EVER watched '5' times!! Absolutely AMAZING job by director, and all of the cast gave 100%! I LOVED IT!!!"
  • 5 stars "Absolutely wonderful movie. I am going to see it again for the 4th time. Wonderful uplifting story with terrific music that leaves you in a joyful, happy mood."
  • 3 stars "It was good but did not expect it to be a musical. Reminded me a lot of La La Land but I knew that was a musical. Would have preferred much more dialogue and much less singing. Otherwise, a touching show that was well done and wholesome. Proves again that crude language, sexual content , and violence are not necessary for a good film."
