Trivia

Instrumental music from Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music" is heard twice: the Festival music is "Night Waltz", and the harp plays "You Must Meet My Wife". There is an irony to this. While based on a film by Ingmar Bergman and possessing a wonderful score, the film adaptation of A Little Night Music was a critical and box office failure. See more »

Goofs

A "Blue Moon" is a full moon, the second one occurring in the same calendar month (which happens infrequently). But the pictures shown of the moon at midnight are all of new moons, just a thin sliver visible. See more »

wretched
28 December 2014 | by snyderpa-198-217501See all my reviews

A wretched musical with rotten musical score, plot befitting a porno, and only one scene with character development. Maybe the special effects were OK if you go to movies just for special effects. The all-star cast were given roles without sufficient emotional depth to allow them to be authentic. From the start, the musical phrases are trite and awkward, no doubt partly because there is not much to sing about other than 'going into the woods' which apparently is supposed to have some metaphorical significance that doesn't really develop. The whole thing reminds me a lot of the old Wizard of Oz yellow brick road trip. This was a waste of money and 2 hours of life.

p.s. If you knew me, you would know just how awful a movie would have to be to move me to register for IMDb to write a review -- and this movie crossed that line very early on in the two hour ordeal. It's badness is epic. It fails to entertain. The trailers should have just shown people singing boring music, because that's all this show is about. If you see good reviews on here, trust me they are not from general movie-going public, probably they are shills with some interest in this movie's success. And don't fall for the Emperor's New Clothes line of how ignorant the bad reviews are -- this movie is unforgettable, and that is a bad thing.
