Movie Comments Aren't the Place for Political Statements
9 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's been a long time since I saw this movie, so I don't really remember enough details to rate it fairly. I do, however, dislike the preceding review in which the reviewer is commenting more on Kelly's life choices than on the movie itself. If you don't like movies about children running away, I have a suggestion: Don't Watch Them! That's like buying tickets to the ballet knowing you don't like ballets.

If you ready Kelly's biography, you'll find out there were several reasons he chose to live and work in France for some time. One of the chief reasons being that the golden age of musicals in Hollywood was winding down and he wasn't finding much work here in the states.

Yes, I realize I'm guilty of filling this post with commentary on Kelly's life choices as I just admonished the previous poster for doing. But I felt Kelly was unfairly pigeon-holed as being a Francophile by an under-educated reviewer with an innate dislike for this type of movie.
