First, I want to thank you for ruining my day and almost forcing me to shoot my computer screen with your avatar....Just kidding...but not really.

I've seen it...infact, it brings back memories....14 cast members crammed into my tiny basement with our 65 year old director watching this...
and "Here's to the ladies who lunch BLEGHHHHHHHHH" has to be the best part
Was that a fat joke?

it's ok. It has it's good and bad moments. I do enjoy it at times but by no means is it a good movie.

I had to tell him, 'No, no, darling. Opening nights don't usually look like this.'

the music is fun but i have to agree with zippyjen. did they have to cast such bad actors for a film about acting?
Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Terrible film really but worth seeing for the musical numbers.
Anna Kendrick rules, love the "Ladies Who Lunch" scene.

"She's f*cked, I'm ready, and the g**damn show must go on. So let's get cracking, shall we?"

EDIT: I can't believe we haven't mentioned the Sondheim cameo!
"We are engaged in two wars, one on drugs and one on terror, that can never be won. I mean, one is a group of inanimate objects and the other is an emotion. We might as well fight a war on pasta, which I guess the Atkins people are actually doing."

I love this movie just because i know the girl in it...The girl that plays the girl who hooks up with the guy lives up the street from me.

That "Ladies Who Lunch" scene made the film for me. With the Sondheim cameo, too.
I just love when she smashes that glass and has that insane look on her face, it cracks me up.

Come on Munk, I mean it is bad, but there is some total dreck out there. Although come to think of it the acting and plot of this movie is dreck. But I loved going to camp and showtunes, so it has that.

It's ok. Certainly not good but as it is a record of these kids accomplishing their dreams of musical performance there is a sweetness to it. OBviously Sondheim gives it his blessing- if he hadn't the rights to the songs alone woulds bust the bank.

It's a movie people love to hate but I love to watch.

Not perfect, but God, how enjoyable to watch!

My only complaint is that they act like the Camp never does any "Black" musicals and are forced to do the most miscast version of Dreamgirls imaginable, but the film opens with that great scene from Gospel at Colonus.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I do like some of the performances - they are amusing.

But did they bother to audition people before casting them? Did they try to cast the least attractive people possible?

The kid that played Michael repulsed me. If you go to your prom in drag - your problems are far deeper than just being Gay - but don't be shocked and depressed when people kick your ass. He asked for it. It just pissed me off.

I loved this movie! I mean, yeah, it's cheesy, and yes, a few of them can't act, but still, it's just so cute!

bwaysinger: That's not the same thing at all, and you know it. He goes to the prom dressed in disgustingly hideous drag. Then when he gets beat up, he's literally depressed and hates his life. DID HE THINK PEOPLE WERE GOING TO THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA?
