Moulin Rouge of the 40's?
30 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect when I bought this movie. It was on sale really cheap and I just wanted something different to watch. Well, that's exactly what I got! This movie is sweet, silly, and completely outrageous. I was laughing out loud at the unabashedly large plot holes. They were just having fun and didn't care. Neither did I. Loved it. For its fun spirit, this film reminded me a lot of Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge - characters just breaking out into song and dance for no real reason. It's a musical that doesn't admit it.The last half hour is a little long and doesn't seem to really go with the rest of movie, but I'll forgive that because it was so fun to watch.
