Movie Info

A hit Broadway musical in 1957 and an equally successful Hollywood film in 1962, Meredith Willson's The Music Man was again brought before the cameras in this lavish made-for-TV adaptation. Standing in for the original's Robert Preston is Matthew Broderick as "Professor" Harold Hill, a glib traveling salesman who descends upon the town of River City, IA, in the weeks just prior to the Fourth of July celebration of 1912.

Fun and tuneful, but not up to Robert Preston original. Still, Broderick is very good.

Prof. Harold Hill may believe the "think" system will teach his..."band" to play. But no amount of brainpower could make...this Music Man ...anything but derivative.

Audience Reviews for The Music Man

Ouch! Matthew Broderick tries to imitate Robert Preston, but he brings out his asinine side instead. It's obvious that he was much better in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF and WARGAMES. And he makes the line "76 trombones led the big parade/with 110 cornets close at hand" sound like "76 trombones led the stampede/with 110 humans coming up from behind to request that Robert Preston come back and take over this awful, awful 'Disney Channel Original Movie'".

The original version was soooo much better. I didn't see much of it but I saw the scene in the library where they turned Marian into a princess and that was horrible.
