Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Some folks dream of the wonders they'll do before they're time on this planet is through. Some just don't have anything planned, they hide their hopes and their heads in the sand. Now I don't say who is wrong, who is right. But if by chance you are here for the night, then all I need is an hour or two to tell the tale of a dreamer like you.

The Music Is Super
29 December 2003 | by (Grand Rapids, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I was highly impressed with the music and vocal performances of all the characters/actors. The acting was very good, if not a bit over the top at times. The only negative thing I can say would be to two scenes where the "ladies" are dressed a little to revealingly and the dancing in one scene is a bit too suggestive for younger eyes.
