Upon a repeat watch, this movie is just *slightly* worse than I remember it being. Nicole is still pretty delightful and gets to play around with some accents and comedy, and Tom Cruise is still very hot and very... committed to his part. Also this movie is basically Land Titanic.
I’m so thrilled the show I loved onstage last year is preserved on film and I’m very happy to say it’s still a goddamn delight. At times cheesy and certainly more watered down for a Disney Channel audience than its stage predecessor, this movie accomplishes exactly what it needs to: being a barrel of fun. Anyone avoiding this for nostalgia of any of the previous movies is sincerely missing out.
