Aspiring actress serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions and jazz musician Sebastian scrapes by playing cocktail-party gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.Written by

Before the end of the 'Another Day of Sun' sequence, as the camera pans up over the freeway, we don't see Mia or Sebastian's cars. After the 'La La Land' and 'Winter' title cards and the camera pans back down, their cars suddenly appear, replacing the other cars that were there before. Mia's Prius replaces the white SUV with the dancer in orange on top, while Seb's car replaces the gray sedan behind the SUV with the dancer in green. See more »
My summary basically says it all. I had so been looking forward to seeing this movie particularly as l love musicals - but am sad to say that I was hugely disappointed. It started brightly enough with the traffic jam dance scene - but from there on in it was all downhill for me. I felt the whole film was terribly disjointed and it felt like they were trying too hard to recreate the magical musicals of years gone by. The singing was poor - and the 'dancing' - if you could call it that - equally uninspiring. Some reviewers have even gushed about this being one of the 'greatest musicals' of all-time. What?? Have they never seen West Side Story, Grease, or any of the old Hollywood greats? Obviously no, otherwise they would never have made such a stupid statement. For me this was 2 hours of ZZzzzzz.
