See it if you're a big fan of Samantha Barks, Andy Karl, or the film (well, maybe) and are able to forgive an utterly and inconceivably dull score.
Don't see it if you're looking for a good musical score. You won't find it here. You will a half-hearted attempt to update a story better left alone.
See it if you're workout playlist consists of Broadway showtunes...or you're looking to try something new!
Don't see it if you don't like cardio-workout classes (although this was low-impact and pressure, so all skill levels would be fine!)...or showtunes (??)
