Great review! Yes, the movie falters whenever Russell Crowe opens his mouth. :) I like the fact that the actors sang live, not mimed pre-recorded vocals. They could act with their voices and the movie doesn't look like a music video like Evita was.
Thanks A.J. my lone "commentor," even though commentor is not a word. :-) I'm actually considering closing this blog and plant sweet potatoes instead. Thanks :-)
