    What the critics had to say.....

    BEN BRENTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says �A monochromatic symphony in the key of beige.� HOWARD KISSEL of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says "Strives for nothing more than unabashed entertainment. It succeeds." ELYSA GARDNER of USA TODAY says �Mind-numbing bunk.�

    GORDON COX of NEWSDAY says "Vibrantly colored spectacle that, like candy, is mostly empty calories."

    MICHAEL KUCHWARA of Associated Press says "Surprisingly bland musical."
