Goofs

When Rosita's automated recording plays on the tape recorder, there's a dice sitting on the table. Number "1" is on top, and number "6" is facing the camera. All six sided dice are manufactured with the 1 on the opposite side of the 6, so this representation is inaccurate. See more »

Sensational dramatic experience. Full of joy, tears, laughter and pleasure
17 December 2016 | by toshani2003See all my reviews

I did not like the trailer, nor the poster. I got a free voucher and I had to use it. I was surprised that the movie got a high rating at IMDb (>7), "what the hec" I said; I will just see it. From the 1st five minutes I was attracted to the amazing characters and the plot. It was a totally different experience to me than any other movie; I literally burst in laughter in some scenes and cried in others; my feet were dancing whenever they sing a song and it all reach a breath-taking climax at the end. The plot brings amazing background story of each character and dramatically shows us how they all overcome their troubles to reach their goals. You should see this movie and enjoy the music and the character development. I rated it 8
