- Romance & Cigarettes Wouldn't it be fun if life were like a musical? ... everybody signing and dancing all the time? Well, although this idea sounds utterly appealing to me, I must admit I didn't like the film. It had everything going for it: witty musical numbers, Susan Sarandon, Christopher Walken, sex, cigarettes and romance. Unfortunately the end result didn't meet expectations. Most of the musical numbers are great but the plot of the film and the characters are not so interesting. By the end of the film we don't care about them and the film never ends - it just goes on and on and on. This is the feeling you want in most musicals—after all, like Selma in Dancer in the Dark, don't we all want to leave after the next to last song in musical so that the film goes on forever in our mind ?—, not for this film however. »
