Indulgent, Slow, Entertaining, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you like the old story of the composer/lyricist team who keep trying for a hit and never quite get there; have a best friend;like kitsch

Don't see it if you expect a surprise ending;expect perfect singing and elegant lyrics; do not give small time playwrights/composers/lyricists a chance

Mediocre, Cliched, Some good songs

See it if You enjoy pale imitations of Sondheimesque life crises about two-dimensional characters who don't sing very well.

Don't see it if For the same price you can see a good movie.
