A very funny twist on the musical comedy genre
19 April 2004 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a while ago in Los Angeles. I thought it was hilarious. Everyone in the audience were laughing their heads off. The muscial numbers were really funny and the dialog was clever and funny too. It reminded me of the film the PRODUCERS.

The story follows a talentless girl and her dominating stage mother. The girl is cast in a broadway play set to fail. The mother ends up taking her place and making the show a hit. It was funny

I wish I could find the video for this film but I don't think it's available. If you get a chance to see this, do it, it's really really funny.
