In a reprisal of the credits gag from the original, Dick Van Dyke is at first credited as "Nackvid Keyd", only for the credits to unscramble themselves again. See more »
Excellent performances of thoroughly unimaginative music, a pale reflection of the original, which was all about the music. It's actually a little spooky hearing those lush Kostal orchestrations used on such dull new songs. The brief moments of excerpts from the original score were like glimmers in the darkness.
If you are a visual person and not concerned with hearing good songs in a musical you might like it.
It does look like they had a lot of fun making this movie, wish they had paid more attention to the score.
