I should have known better but I was curious. I don't dislike musicals per se but I just had a feeling that I wouldn't like a Stephen Sondheim musical. And I was right. I didn't. I didn't hate this or anything but I definitely liked the non song parts a lot more than the musical interruptions.
Visually, the film looked great and I dug the plot for the most part but those songs, those damn songs kept taking me out of it. And Sacha Baron Cohen was embarrassingly miscast - and I like him.
SHR said she was going to record a song in the style of Sweeney Todd as her review of the movie but unfortunately she changed her mind.
Directed by Tim Burton
