Really embarrassing! YANBU.

I liked it the first couple of times, but DD has since become obsessed with it and after the millionth viewing, I can no longer stand it!!

FunLovinBunster Sat 20-Jul-13 21:03:50

DD is trying to persuade me to take her to see Smurfs 2.
Over my dead fucking body....
Oooh BBC3 have a Family Guy Speshul on later. Now that I LOVE.

Yanbu! The French and Saunders piss take of it is brilliant though.

BigW Sat 20-Jul-13 21:05:26

YANBU (I think, but I've never got further than the first 10 minutes and that was like torture)

I have never agreed with an AIBU thread more

YADNBU

The woman who plays Sophie is a good singer, the rest sound like cats with their tails trapped in a window.

FunLovinBunster Sat 20-Jul-13 21:07:18

Meryl Streep is caterwauling again.
If she doesn't stop I'm staging a dirty protest...

squoosh Sat 20-Jul-13 21:08:49

YANBU it's a soppy, saccharine, singy, snoozefest.

Considering the calibre of some of the actors in it Meryl Streep, Stellan Skarsgard, Julie Walters, Colin Firth......................those must have been some big fat cheques that they waved at them.

I like plenty of crappy films myself (Three Men and a Baby anyone?) but am baffled how this hogwash became one of the highest grossing films of that year.

FunLovinBunster Sat 20-Jul-13 21:09:37

Three men?? Holy shit.

Ooh I like it so does my dd so took her to the musical stage version and that too was great

Thank fuck. I thought I was the only person in the world who hated every millimetre of this 'musical', stage or (especially) screen version.

YADNBU.

squoosh Sat 20-Jul-13 21:11:41

All musicals, aside from Oliver, are shite.

Jamdoughnutfiend Sat 20-Jul-13 21:11:43

God it is so awful! But DH seems to like it so can't turn over (bah!)

suchawimp Sat 20-Jul-13 21:11:53

Love it!!

Just pure sing a long, kitschy, pop fun!

FunLovinBunster Sat 20-Jul-13 21:11:56

Right. Dirty protest it is then.

Leeds2 Sat 20-Jul-13 21:12:06

I loved it at the theatre, and on DVD!

dirtyface Sat 20-Jul-13 21:15:21

ha ha i am watching it

and i like it blush

and that dominic someone (who plays the daughters husband to be) is just ridiculously FIT

Ujjayi Sat 20-Jul-13 21:15:21

YABU.

Yes, it's utter piffle; agree no one can sing tunefully; it's schmaltzy and camp. BUT it is totally wonderful, escapist nonsense in which the cast look as though they are loving every second smilegrin

squoosh Sat 20-Jul-13 21:16:43

The Dominic actor guy is so not fit, he looks like a Mediterranean leprechaun.

fatlazymummy Sat 20-Jul-13 21:18:25

Hate the film, love the songs when they are performed by the original artists.
I agree with those posters who say all musicals are shit. Unless Dirty dancing and Flashdance count as musicals (I don't know, there's a lot of music in them)

FunLovinBunster Sat 20-Jul-13 21:19:46

Grease is the only decent musical.

YANBU, I remember getting it out on Lovefilm, I only managed to watch 10 minutes of it, it's tripe!

FunLovinBunster Sat 20-Jul-13 21:21:00

The biddy at the end of the TouchNet ad looks like she is in need of a TenaLady

Nice scenery, hellish film.
