Audience Reviews for 1776

  • Jul 04, 2019
    Granted, a lot of this works better on stage but its still a mostly historically accurate musical with some great songs.

    Undoubtedly, the best Fourth of July film ever. The songs are -- for the most part -- unmemorable. The acting varies from good to pedestrian. Cinematography is bland and uninspired. Sets are -- well, early 1970's studio-chic. Costumes are marginally good. Nevertheless, "1776" is captivating and a wonderful, family-friendly history lesson on America's independence journey, with warts and all.
