Not Even a Nice Try
28 March 2001 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

The only person perfectly cast was Liat. Harry Connick, Jr. was an acceptable Lt. Cable. All the others were either too old, couldn't sing or act or a combination of the three. The orchestration was disappointing, no where near the original's fullness and liveliness. Ms. Close's singing was barely passable, all the others should have been dubbed. The photography, film location and production was excellent. Too bad they could not combine that with people that could do a better job with acting and singing. Kudos to those who put up the money to remake the movie. I guess not enough money was put into it to make it a world class film.
