Saying that this film is a Musical is like saying The Martian is a comedy. I found the film extremely slow moving and it did not hold my attention. The story line was weak and it had me hoping it would improve. It did not improve and I walked out with about 40 minutes of the film remaining. Considering the exceptional reviews and ratings this film has been getting I was sorely disappointed. Films like Singing in the Rain are musicals. This is not even a fraction of a musical. I am an avid film goer and consider that I have enough musical knowledge, coming from a musical background, to give such judgments. I notice one other reviewer stated this could be classed as a poor man's Woody Allen film and I totally agree. Last year I saw The Cafe Society and this had far greater costumes, acting, depth and music .
