At the title credits it says the film was inspired by a song.Well it’s not the worst thing to inspire a film considering Pirates of The Caribbean was inspired by a Disney World roller-coaster.There’s quite a few songs is this.Not really my thing,sometimes just 30 seconds between songs,but the tap dancing and routines are well choreographed and look great.Some long shots between cuts too.The plot seems very similar to The Artist;talking movies are just coming into fashion and the old silent actors are getting laughed out of the cinema.Mostly because the technology is new to them and little sounds are amplified,also a big name actress has a funny voice too.Then just like The Artist they decide chance their style and do big musical and dance sequences instead. Because the female lead has a terrible voice they over-dub hers with a no name actress who has a good voice.The female lead then wants to blackmail the producer into using her voice for overdubbing every film with out giving her credit.As you can guess everyone finds out in the end.
IMDB RATING – 8.3

RECOMMEND? – YES
OVERALL – MUSICALS AREN’T FOR ME.BUT IT’S WORTH IF FOR A COUPLE OF THE DANCE SEQUENCES.
