This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The moral of the story is B.J. Novak is always the villain.
I watched the Encore cut.
I really enjoyed the gangster/musical mash-up. The whole cast is fantastic and entertaining—especially Gregory Hines and excluding Richard Gere (except for his cornet playing) who sounds as flat as Harrison Ford's narration in the theatrical cut of Blade Runner (1982).
I think I may have seen the theatrical cut at some point in the past but it might have been a different movie about a Cotton Club type of place…
