Audience Reviews for Star!


Julie's in fine form and some of the production numbers, especially Jenny, are eye popping but it's just too long.

Super Reviewer

My favorite Julie Andrews musical, it's an epic, it's a bit longer than LOTR, and as the main review says, she's on screen all the time. This movie shows off her many talents, faces, voices, and dance moves. But the best of all is when she does the Saga of Jenny. This movie will make you gay, or a lesbian depending on your sex.
