I’d give it 0 star but I watched it with my kid who enjoyed its chaos so the half star’s a handout
I was skeptical as I love WSS the musical and the 1961 movie but this was a solid remake. Relevant, inspired and raw. Where the 1961 film was a stark contrast in realism to its contemporary musicals, the 2021 film lends even more authenticity. Choreography and cinematography are top notch. And finally, Hollywood gives us a musical film where actors can actually sing and are actually of the right ethnicity. Rita Moreno and Adriana DeBose are queens. I still think they could have picked a better Tony though. I can’t believe they made the same miscast twice.
