a nice try
17 February 2009 | by godspellgroupieSee all my reviews

This film is a less pretense than chorus line,but not as entertaining as Fame. It sets up and unfolds in sort of a predictable fashion as it presents a story of four wannabees trying out for Broadway-A country girl who is always the star of the local plays,a Los Angeles hot shot, a brooklyn street dancer and a poor girl from harlem.One makes it,one takes a secondary role,one doesn't make it but has something to fall back on,and one dosen't make it and loses something else in the process.

This film has its moments but never really reaches a climax. Still with so many people addicted to American Idol and Dancin with the stars,this film deserves at least another look
