I was little late getting to watch the movie, but it ended up being great timing. Unknowingly we picked the show time that showed the film in the Showcase of the Warren Old Town Theatre. Much better than the Director’s Suite, I think. We had our own booth, basically. The only thing we both agreed we wanted were foot rests. The Director’s Suite chairs recline.
The movie as a musical was great. It had a lot of tongue in cheek humor. Some of it, though, bordered on awkward and even questionable. If you haven’t seen it yet, pay attention to the way The Wolf (Johnny Depp) describes Little Red Riding Hood in his song. My friend called it disturbing. There were a lot of side glances between my friend and I. And the Chris Pine aka Captain Kirk was charming and less than manly. I cringed.
My friend didn’t know it was going to be a musical. I think there were enough laughs though to make up for it. Definitely would not go see it again, unless it was free and I was bored, but it was a great time all in all.
Especially since we were in the Showcase.
