    Could've been funnier. Yet, when it comes to Gooding Jr. picking good films, this is simply a wiser choice compared to some of the films he has choosen..not saying any certian films...(SHADOWBOXER)...lol..I didnt say anything...

    Very funny. Especially when Gooding lies. At first I thought this is not a musical, but it is. The songs were great! The voices were also great. A bit predictable though but very good. It is not as grand as Chicago, Hairspray etc. but the simplicity of the film made it more than worth watching
