    Musicals ARE hot right now...as is this show (actually Sarah got me to watch it and I generally enjoy it, at least the good singers, which there are 3-4 very good ones).

    The clip I saw looked like Beach Blanket Bingo or something. Love story set on beach, kids having fun dancing around singing to each other.

    As dumb and commercial as it first sounded, I could see it having a certain charm. I'll be waiting for some reviews of course. [​IMG]

    Certainly it can't be worse than Sweet Home Alabama or Rollerball.

    Cripes, even The Core is getting mixed reviews, so there is an audience for everyone.

    What does a picture of a poster and an, admittedly, bland title prove? I would have to have more information about the movie before I would decide that it is not worth seeing.

    Well, if I'm ever suicidal and looking for something to push me over the edge, I know where to look.

    *wonders how many HTFers would buy the DVD if it had a DTS track [​IMG]*

    Hmmm, perhaps the same kind of people who have been feeding the ratings cash cow of "Reality TV"; you know, the ones who talk about the latest American Idol finalists at work the next day...

    NEVER underestimate the stupidity of the ever-lowering-standards American public.

    The clips I've seen make it look more horrific than I imagined. It looks like what it probably is

    Something someone wrote in a weekend, then took some songs they had lying around and tweaked the lyrics. This is not a musical, this is a slapdash rush job. A musical is finely tailored with YEARS of work, and the songs have a point (unlike this shithole)

    Supposedly it's been pushed back to June

    I can only assume those people are part of that american idol thing that I've never watched. The show is quite popular so more power to them for getting a movie of their own.

    From the clip I saw on American Idol, it looked like it would be direct-to-video.

    To be followed by "Joe Millionaire: The Movie," no doubt. [​IMG]

    I would never put 'art' and 'singing' in the same sentence when talking about "American Idol" contestants. Like pop "singers", they are entertainers - meaning that there is more of an emphasis on the physicality of their performance. That's why none of them sing while standing statically against an equally static background. If you want to hear what a real singer sounds like, buy a Anne-Sofie von Otter CD.

    I think that's in reference to the poster. They let the fans decide which one to use.

    I guess.

    Yeah, I was talking about the number on the poster--I guess it does mean some fan voted thing.

    As for American Idol, this thread constitutes the first time I've ever laid eyes upon these two souls I'm supposed to be idoling.

    I'll probably skip this, though the girl on the left's kinda pretty.

    I work at theater near me and I was checking out the new posters we got recently, and this happened to be one of them. I will not be putting this one up for display that's for sure. I will put The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,Lost in La Mancha, and Bruce Almighty. We also got a new X-Men poster so I will replaced the first teaser poster with the new one. Anyways this looks like another piece of trash and I have no intention in seeing this whatsoever. This is coming from a person who usually see's every movie that comes out.
