Original, Great acting, Romantic, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You're a fan of the cast, Sutton especially. Music is fun, dancing is great. "Man in Chair" is a great role.

Don't see it if You're looking for something with more depth. It wasn't perfect. "Curtains," which was out around the same time, was much better.
