It’s terrible. The hit song was changed to mean something completely different. And for a show about dancing, you never actually see Audrey Landers dance.

I remember thinking that Michael Douglas was so hot in this movie.

And "Cassie" was a bitch for getting on the Chorus Line because she was fucking Michael Douglas.

In the "what might have been" category, Bob Fosse was coming off Star 80 which made him persona non grata and later said he would have loved doing the movie of ACL but was never asked. Then again, we might have had to contend with Ann Reinking as Cassie. Vicki Frederick said that nothing made him madder than when fans came up to him and said that his show A Chorus Line was their favorite show of all time. He would be able to claim the show. I can see it. The finale with bowlers.

In fairness, it's very possible that the E&O attorneys asked for this change as there may have been a Judy Turner who was deemed too close a resemblance to the character. (In short, it may not have been a creative choice.)

[quote] What's an E & O attorney?

Errors and Omissions. Basically they vet anything in the film you could be sued for. In this particular instance (and I'm not saying this actually happened), let's say that since 1975, there was a a dancer named Judy Turner in real life who had many things in common with the character, enough so that she could conceivably sue the studio for appropriating her life story.

Now, the chances of this happening are slim to none, but if there's even a chance that the above scenario could happen, then the attorneys advise the studio/filmmakers to make a change such as changing the name.

That's a super simplification of the the whole concept.

I've tried to watch this film at least three times. It's so flat and dull. There's no joy. No razzle dazzle. I agree with r34, All That Jazz does it better in its opening number than the two hours of this dull film.

And the '80s drum machines used to adapt the score did not age well.

And Reed's Cassie has zero charisma. She's like a blank void throughout the whole film.

Not even a single mention of Gregg Burge? He was one of the three best male show dancers of his era (along with Don Correia and Hinton Battle) and his work in Surprise Surprise is so outstanding it almost seems from a different movie. After seeing that and hearing Zach say Cassis is too good, you can only realize what a letdown the character and number is. And although Let Me Dance for You is a bomb (it was a throwaway from the workshop), Music and the Mirror is one of the most lethal and overrated numbers in theater history. Bennett was on the right track when he staged it with four backup dancers so it was essentially the story of how Cassie became a star but alone it's long and boring.

R25 & 29, it was a creative choice. Judy Turner's line in the original script makes reference to Lana Turner: "I'm Judy Turner, but my real name is Lana Turner". Her last name was was changed to Judy Monroe because they thought that Marilyn Monroe was more well known to audiences of that time than Lana Turner, and make a better joke. It's one of hundreds of mistakes in this poor adaptation of the show. I was doing the World Tour of the show as Mark a year and a half or so after the film was released. Matt West, the Bobby in the film, was playing Bobby in our company. His presence in the show was noted and he was singled out in the press in Europe and especially in Japan, since audiences there had embraced the film. We were all ACL purists, and even he knew the film was a misfire. I'm pretty sure there isn't a dancer who has done the show with the original choreography and script who doesn't feel the same way.

Today, I know it isn't a great movie or anything, but I will watch it and have fond memories. And there was a ton of armpit hair shots, which fascinated me to no end at the time.

The guy who played Paul was also in the Oliva Newton-Jphn video for "The Rumor," which I thought was THE most glamorous video in the world.

A Chorus Line




Those shows are firmly set in NYC in 1975, 1970 and 1971, respectively. A major crush on Robert Goulet didn't have to be explained nor did a telephone service, and there were still annual reunions of Ziegfeld Follies girls. The NYC that the audience walked out into was the same NYC they'd just seen on the stage. Now they play like period pieces. That original immediacy can never be recreated.

Alyson Reed was one of the biggest WTF? castings ever. She had zero spark and looked like some frau on her way to an aerobics class in Greenwich CT than an accomplished dancer. Vicki Frederick or Ann Reinking would have been much better choices.

I remember reading on IMDB years back that Allyson Reed was scheduled to do the Carson show the day after the films premiere, but when she flew out to LA, she found out she'd been dropped from the guest list of that night show due to the terrible reviews the movie got, so she took the next plane back to NY. I have no idea if it's true or not, but it's amusing nonetheless.

Poor Nicole had to spend that entire movie pigeon toed, as if that would show innocence. That was a Fosse signature, however. And she was very cute in it, so that's a nice reminder of how adorable she was at that age.

Perhaps the best female dancer of that era was Sandahl Bergman but she couldn't convey vulnerability, either through acting or especially dancing. I mean at that stage, you'd practically have to bring Gwen Verdon back. I think I might have gone for Vicki. Ann's voice and square jaw were not meant for the movies.

Listening to Ann croak out "Let me daaaaance for you" is terrifying to even think of. The LA Times noted that within her limited realm, she's a star but out of it, she's something of a pain. I think that's one of the more astute criticisms about her.

The more I watch this movie, the more the Cassie character ruins the movie for me.

Not only does she just waltz into the audition late, but she totally distracts the director's attention from all the other dancers.

They have to keep stopping the audition because he's so irritated with her.

Then when he finally lets her audition, he keeps stopping the audition to yell at Cassie.

If I were one of those dancers, I would have been pissed!

And then in the end, she gets a spot on the Chorus Line because she's going to end up sleeping with the Michael Douglas character!!!

The weird thing about this movie is that it's titled "A Chorus Line," but the plot of the movie is how Cassie is too good for a chorus line, because she's a solo "STAR" dancer.

So what's the message here?

It's on right now.

Anyone watching?

R119 she's actually a really good dancer but I guess David E Kelley didn't spring for choreography! I think this was as the show was in its death throes in season 5. Jane is really talented

I love CZJ's tribute to Michael where she takes the Mick out of him for A Chorus Line

I have very fond memories of this movie but not because of the movie. My mom had gotten a VCR but never used it. We watched the movie while recording it and then watched the tape to make sure it was recorded. Mom loved the movie and would watch the tape whenever she wanted to. RIP, Mom. ❤️

Call me Mary! but the last number always makes me tear up.

I wonder where the cast is nowadays.

Alyson Reed and Terrence Mann are the only two who seemed to continue on as working actors.

(and Douglas too obviously.)
