See this Movie, BUT the live show is still better
Myself, and the folks with whom I saw this movie, didn't feel it dated, nor did we feel the actors too old to reprise their roles, as some critics have said. It was so great to see the original players reprise their roles on screen. Minor complaints, like some of the music being cut out, except for one glaring issue: Rosario Dawson CANNOT sing. What a letdown to hear such wonderful songs as "Without You", "Out Tonight", "No Day But Today" etc., with no punch, no emotion, no passion, such as they were sung by Daphne Rubin-Vega, and everyone who played Mimi that we saw in three different touring companies. I find it hard to believe she was the best they could find for that role. It was almost as if Adam Pascal had to change the way he sung the duets, just to accommodate how poorly she sung. I own the movie, and I watch it often, but I have to skip the scenes where she's featured because they are such a letdown. She's nowhere near as strong as the other actors/singers, and was a very poor choice to play Mimi. That said, the music is still as relevant today as it was in the mid-90's, and it's heartbreaking to think Jonathan Larson never got to see audiences enjoy his work.
