Based on the popular novel which has been depicted many times in film, we have a Holiday winner with this cast. The leading four actresses, the sisters, have good chemistry and I will say that this is the best performance of these characters that I’ve seen (only one other have I seen). A must see this Season in theatres.

No other way to describe this film than whimsical and eye-popping dazzling! Disney at it’s best for the Holiday Season. I actually have never seen the original film in it’s entirely…but it’s on my list. I truly loved this heartwarming family film. I saw it in Dolby and it was great.

Okay, lots of the music is a duplicate from the first film eight years ago. I found the storyline to be slow and not interesting and fun like the first film. Although, one of the original characters has now passed away, she’s still in the movie. Also, Cher’s appearance so to speak saves the movie.

Follow my movie reviews via FB M.U.S.E. Enthusiasts:
Journalists and those who work in government will really like this movie. The movie is slow in retro topics that in depth didn’t compel me to engage in this movie. The acting is good but not enough for me although with this being a film based on true accounts. Maybe I need to watch it again.
Based on a true story, Meryl gives a great performance of a woman who wanted to be an opera singer yet can’t sing a note in a key that anyone would want to hear. Although, a horrible singer it’s hard to not feel sorry for her and want her to win yet singing is not where her talent is. Lots of humor. Vocals of the real Florence are played at the end of the movie and you can compare to Meryl and hear how similar they are.

This movie is, of course, based on a true story of our fore-mothers who marched and became rebels for equality of women. It was really horrible when women had no rights and had to fight for everything. Carey gives a stellar performance as Maud Watts (I wouldn’t be surprised with an Oscar nomination; she also does well in period movies). Now, I would be surprised if Meryl gets an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Emmeline Pankhurst. The role is quite small yet Pankhurst was the rebel leader. Great acting and story well told. Immediately after the movie, there’s a scroll of countries showing when women gained equal rights…astonishing on years the rights were made lawful and shocking on the 2015 country addition.

Lots of decent singing and music yet it was also heartwarming to me. Basically we have a dead beat mom (Ricki breaks that down in the movie) who leaves her husband and children to pursue of dreams of becoming a rock star. Her husband remarries and his wife raises the three children. When one of the children’s life is in distress, Ricki, returns to hopefully help. I enjoyed the mother-daughter scenes. I also enjoyed seeing Rick Springfield on the big screen (they never sang “Jessie’s Girl).

I found this musical fairy tale of sorts to be funny and entertaining (the singing is not so good to me other than from those I know who can sing). This musical is a bit dark and not for children in my opinion yet it is being marketed towards children. Overall, a good cast…not a must see but if you want a laugh, check it out.

You really have to pay attention to the storyline to “get” this film. It’s a bit slow yet there are biblical principles throughout the whole film. I liked the sci-fi genre of the film and the transition of the screen from black and white to color. I think this is a thought provoking film yet the delivery could have been better.

Here’s a small town family with lots of dysfunctional issues! Good acting yet the movie isn’t spectacular. Slow in some parts and was a little boring until the next family issue came up. Still in select theatres or on vod via your cable provider. We’ll see this evening if Meryl wins again, lol.
