It provides an invaluable example of how not to make a movie out of a stage classic.
Truth to tell, it's exactly the kind of musical pointed out by people who say they just don't like musicals.
It's a trifle, but was pleasantly presented and I found it to be an adequate though not a scintillating production.
The movie musical is practically a dead horse in Hollywood, and The Fantasticks does little to kick it back to life.
Presents an inviting opportunity to 'try to remember' a cinematic art that has sadly been all but lost.

- Hucklebee: And what exactly would this literary rape cost?
- El Gallo: Here's my rough estimate. [hands Hucklebee a piece of paper]
- Hucklebee: [peers and then squints at the document as he says cynically] My...You really get screwed on these Literary Rapes.
