Will there be skipping? I hope there isn't too much of it. No wonder Jake dropped out. This could set the gays back decades!
It's got an impossible to film libretto! It's full of scenes that do not follow the preceding scenes, and too many characters! How are they going to film the numbers that are full of fugues? The show is a real B- Sondheim, and very maudlin, with a couple of great ballads....AFTER the two hour mark. I think it has disaster all over it.
Have I ever received a Razzie nomination? Will this be my first? Will Glenn and Viola see this at the mall and mock me? MAMIE, fire my team and get me a new one!!!!!!
it could use a few cuts
Not to worry. Director Rob Marshall will screw this one up, just like he ruined NINE and CHICAGO and MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA and single-handedly killed the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise. Doesn't matter the cast - he can't direct traffic, let alone a big-budget film.
(and yes M, you got a Razzie nom for your last musical, MAMMA MIA!)
