People seem to watch this show to hate it
5 January 2013 | by (Birmingham) – See all my reviews

And curse the covering of songs, the plot and everything. Let's not forget that this is one of the few 80s movies where the characters are seem to be singing and not have the songs in the background. OK, the songs aren't 80s songs (well neither were the songs from Dirty Dancing, Fame, or Footloose), the vocals people say are terrible (urm can you guys sing yourself? And how can you take a swipe at Britta Phillips who took the lead in Mr. Big Stuff)...

The plot is weak but so are the plots of Footloose and well Dirty Dancing. Love pairing? What's wrong with Nesson and Bateman? Everyone who criticises this movie seems to think they know it all and can direct movies or choose the right songs.
