    I wanted them to start the film over the second it had ended. Magnificent. 5 years 11 months ago

    In all honesty, I wanted to enjoy this, but I just found it boring. I'll sit through tons of movies other people might find boring and love them, but this just left me waiting for something to make me care. Some moment of frisson or magic that made me get involved, but I found myself finding it lackluster. I mean, the singing wasn't pretty in the least, the songs didn't move me. I mean, I'm not saying I don't respect that the actors used their own voices, but it just wasn't catchy to me at all. Nothing ever felt high stakes emotional, it was kind of dull. Did they delve into anything, really? Was there anything special here? I just don't see it. I couldn't relate to these characters for the most part. And, that sort of "what if" ending, what for? I mean, sure, it's humanly relatable, but it didn't strike me as special enough to be there.

    All my other comments aside, I just had no enjoyment watching this. I kept waiting for just one thing that might sweep me off my feet. It could have contained 5 seconds of something special and I would probably have liked this movie, but I never got it. I felt like a depressed person watching this film, just staring at the screen expressionless for 2 hours.

    I didn't hate this movie, I'd say I was pretty much apathetic to it. Which is extremely, extremely, rare for me.
