    Overwrought, overlong, and with not much to say, this faux-musical love story is pretty to the eye and the ear but not much more than that. The only drama comes by way of forced arguments and a weakly explained, and off camera, separation. This movie is a pretty fantasy. With painfully heavy handed nods to old Hollywood and its five musical numbers it's a shoe in for best picture, and that's the real shame.

And this film contains all of his hallmarks: cliched story, pointless cliched romance, unremarkable characters, cliched dialogue, etc. etc.
