VERY GOOD, BETTER THAN THE CRITICS SAID IT WAS
20 March 2003 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

think this movie is much better than the credit it has been given. I saw it on HBO years ago and cannot find it on video or cable since, and have looked for a long time indeed. Rex Smith is an excellent actor with a great voice, the musical numbers are way above average, and the story, while told many times over in musicals about stars heading for the stage, is very well done. The excitement builds and the climax is a very good heart warming finale.
