I would like to start this off by saying that I have never even heard of this musical before the movie, thus I have never seen the Broadway production. This review is only based on the movie. I was aware of this movie after the soundtrack was suggested on my spotify and I loved it. I watched the movie hoping that I would be able to understand the songs more. This movie has wonderful music and the songs are addictive. I thought the chemistry between both characters was very good. However, individually, I liked the leads unevenly. Anna Kendrick as the female lead was lovely to watch and I believe her voice is very nice. However, Jeremy Jordan's male lead, Jamie (yes I know, lots of J's), was much less likable. His voice was lovely but because I didn't care for his character made me not want to listen to his songs. I know that this is an indie darling in the Broadway community, but, as an outsider, I thought /,because of this dislike of one of the leads, the movie's story was lacking. I probably won't watch the movie multiple times but i will get the soundtrack so I can listen to it all the time.
