  • 5 stars The "Blade Runner" of movie musicals.
  • It's unlike anything that's been done before. I loved it and will go again. Bernadette Peters played the witch in the stage play. I saw it online.
  • Very creative. A Musical masterpiece - just really different. Read up on the story line first and pay attention to every word. The actors are singing their thoughts.
  • The people who wrote the bad reviews have very bad grammar, so I can see why you didn't "get" the movie. It's not your ordinary musical.
  • 5 stars You have to really pay attention to understand it. Meryl Streep is amazing.
  • 5 stars It was very cleverly written. The words must have been really hard to learn. Good acting. Anna Kendrick and Emily Blunt have great voices.
  • 5 stars Sondheim writes musicals so obviously it's a musical and it was written for the stage. If you saw Les Mis, every word was also sung.
  • I have been in the stage play so needless to say, I loved this movie and I'll get the DVD and watch it many times. It is complicated and the parts are intricately woven together but if you pay attention, you'll see that the whole thing is a lesson in being careful what you wish for because the answer to someone's wish can hurt someone else. It says "Wishes are like children" - you have to be careful and look after them.
  • 5 stars Of course it's a musical - it's a Broadway musical and Sondheim is a musical genius. The parts all intersect with each other in a very clever way. If you want a happy ending leave when the Prince marries Cinderella. Otherwise, stay and see what happens because of the wishes that were made. Someone said Johnny Depp plays a pervert - no - he plays a wolf, dummy.
  • 5 stars I saw the movie twice and I will get the DVD. I saw it 3 times on stage and it helps to know the story ahead of time so you can follow it more easily because it's complicated. Contrary to some reviewers, it does have a plot and lots of lessons to be learned.
