Great music. Uneven film.
Here's a little more.
- Confession: I didn't know this was a film based on a musical. But 10 seconds into it, I thought, "This sure seems like a musical."
- More about uneven? There are too many extended, uninteresting moments. I'd lose interest and then be brought back by something fun.
- As good or bad as this film may be, it's best feature is Tom Cruise. I didn't really like the film and I'd love to see it again just because of his performance.
- Come to think of it, I guess I liked everyone's performance. I just wasn't crazy about the film.
How's that for a "I didn't really like this, but somehow it's a good film - sort of" - review?
