Goofs

During the finale, the line "Would you like to dance with me?" is repeated many times. The first time, the DVD subtitles mis-transcribe it as "Would you care to dance with me?" All the other times it is written correctly. See more »

Dancing Ruined by Schlock Direction
4 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This filming of what is probably a very good theatrical performance has been completely ruined by the director's insistence on jump cutting and slo-mo effects. I don't think that any camera angle is held for more than 3 seconds before a cut is made.

I detest directors who think that a focus on the subject is not worthwhile and who would rather the viewer has the attention span of a gnat. Perhaps in the theatre this would have worked. On video, it appears to me to have been subjected to the Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

This is a perfect example of how not to video the genre. Bad, Bad, bad.

Absolutely ghastly! Save your money for something else.
