Quotes

Princess Eminence: Youre a man with needs, and I like to help the needy.
Bradley Darnell Lyle: No sex, remember? I promised.
Princess Eminence: Off course. No sex. Just a little tension release. You know. Think of it as a, say a, lapdance... with benefits.

Great musical!
24 February 2013 | by l-vandressSee all my reviews

I'm a middle-aged housewife and know little about the world depicted in this film, but still found this one of best musicals I've seen in the last 10 years. Well-written songs, fabulous dance numbers, and good acting--what more could you want? The music is so infectious I'm hoping to find the soundtrack to purchase. Put your prejudice aside and try watching it. I dare you not to get up and dance! Not sure what the previous reviewer's agenda is but, this is a musical! No one would ever have assumed that Oklahoma, Chicago, or West Side Story was trying to portray everyone who lived in those places or during those times. Lighten up or don't watch musicals.
