While the use of colored filters will always be controversial, this is a musical I have always enjoyed. I never saw the stage play, so was introduced to the music by the movie. It's not perfect, but has a high nostalgia factor for me. The disc completely flew under my radar when released and as a fan I am thinking of picking this one up. The Kauai locations are great, the music unsurpassed, and if the transfer is truly great then this will be a buy for me.
