Film Snobbery

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.

An underpopulated, cliched Romeo-and-Juliet affair that only comes to life during its song sequences.
