    Spielberg does the impossible here (make a great new film adaptation of a classic stage musical that already had a classic film adaptation) and nearly all of the changes/ updates work. Hell even some of the new stagings are even better here ("Cool" and "I Feel Pretty"). Apparently Spielberg's old school craftsmanship is exactly what the movie musical needed.
