[first lines]
Curly: [singing] There's a bright golden haze on the meadow, / There's a bright golden haze on the meadow. / The corn is as high as a elephant's eye, / And it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. / Oh, what a beautiful mornin', / Oh, what a beautiful day! / I got a beautiful feelin' / Everything's goin' my way.

User Reviews

I enjoyed it personally
25 November 2003 | by emilygraceySee all my reviews

However, my one setback is that everyone is too busy praising Hugh Jackman to the sky (Not that he doesn't deserve it) but no one really says a word about Shuler Hensley, who I thought was the best thing about the entire show! He took someone who I thought I would never feel sorry for and did just that. He reminded me a lot of Lennie from 'Of Mice and Men.' Basically, not the sharpest tool in the shed (which is pretty ironic considering that's where he lives :P) I enjoyed most of the cast, with the exception of Vicki Smith who just annoyed the crap out of me as Ado Annie. I really liked Maureen as Aunt Eller too! She was so cool! Little old lady with a ton of spunk :D

I'm excited that it's released on DVD here in the states and can't wait to go and buy it!
