I was extremely disappointed with this movie. I only made it about 30 minutes before giving up. The songs may be good, but not if you have to watch this movie to hear them. This movie has none of the spark of Philadelphia Story. The cast may have excelled in other arenas, but they seem miscast here and they seem to know it. Everyone is just going through the motions. It's a drab, tedious, dull movie.
