Entertaining, Funny, Delightful, Great singing, Clever

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Overrated, Confusing

See it if It takes a story of racism and societal acceptance and makes it about white girls. If that's your thing, go for it.

Don't see it if It underplays racism and the role white privilege has it in.

Excruciating, Overrated, Fluffy, Dizzying, Cliched

See it if You are looking for a musical for a girls night out

Don't see it if You aren't looking for a musical or something very feminine
