Excruciatingly awful attempt to entertain - hodge podge of mediocrity.
21 February 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This is an incredibly UN-entertaining hodge podge of comedy skits, dance and song numbers and an attempt at drama. The excellent review on this page by "lugonian" enumerates all of the pieces so no need to repeat them here. One would think there'd be a few gems, considering the variety, but it is all extremely mediocre stuff. Even the Merman number "THE ANIMAL IN ME" which garnered the film's only Oscar nom for best choreography (dance direction) is nothing more than using stop and start editing to make it look as though elephants are dancing ala Busby Berkeley - it's over in three minutes and is completely unmemorable and undeserving of this Academy recognition. It's a surprise that Norman Taurog, one of Hollywood's better directors, was responsible for this mess. This is so bad I gave it a vote of "one" - awful. I'd avoid it like the plague if I were you.
