    Luhrmann is a director with the style and snap to have these tired routines on their feet and kicking like a line of Rockettes. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The movie is funny, energetic, and enjoyable -- the perfect film for a night or an afternoon out, regardless of what mood you're in. While the plot and characters don't boast any special depth, there's enough freshness to hold just about anyone's interest. show more

    It's silly, it's serious, it's outrageous, it's mundane, it's blowsy, it's lovely. Yet this fickle film has a constant heart - warm and very likeable. show more
