Less Curls, More Quality

If you're a musician, this is the one you want—the performers all did it justice. The arrangement of "NYC" is just terrific. And as a bonus, the revisions in the story line and the upgraded performances made the whole thing a little more more believable and considerably more enjoyable. So if curly hair is not essential, this is the one you want!

Not a movie for young kids

I was disappointed with this movie, especially the scenes that included shouting, violence and drunkenness. I did not find this to be a good movie overall, and wish my young children had not watched it.

OK if skip/block some parts

Can prompt discussions about the plight of orphans, what we will do to help, etc. The con-man's girlfriend dresses (and dances) lasciviously, which I would skip or block from view.
