Inside opinion
18 January 2016 | by nrs-22269See all my reviews

First off, I enjoyed this movie.

Disclaimer * - Too many posts are written "anonymously" when in actuality the author was involved with the film, or had personal experiences with individuals involved with the film. With this in mind, I would like to disclose that I personally know an individual involved in the making of this film.

It should be known that Denise Downs, the actress playing Mercedes, was placed in a situation where she ethically could no longer work on this project, despite attempts to resolve any issues. Subsequently, her voice was replaced by another individual many times throughout the film. Any discrepancies should be noted.

Additionally, in the scene where Mercedes was performing her burlesque routine, the song used for the filming and choreography was replaced after her departure from this project. The song used in the actual film therefore does not match her dance routine.
