Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You love this old style of musical. Nice to have a strong leading lady, though. Other shows have more catchy music.

Don't see it if Old fashioned is not your thing.

Funny, Slow, Dated, Entertaining, Dolly-esque

See it if You enjoy hearing those classic Jerry Herman songs like Bosom Buddies, Open A New Window and the title song (natch.)

Don't see it if You are expecting riveting plot points. Guessing they probably felt a bit dated when La Lansbury spoke them way back when.
