    The old style picture might be difficult for some viewer’s because they are accustom to high definition and colored pictures like modern productions, but once you give it a chance, your opinion might change. I personally am acclimated to old style film and thought it added suspense and dramatic effect with still incorporating several good laughs. It is neither too long nor too short and are not any identifiable drawn out or pointless scenes. All scenes throughout the film have relevance to the design of the story and include details of importance. My favorite element of the film would be the music because the dramatic instrumental music fit the emotional tone of the film.…

    She sings it very well and it is those kinds of songs that get stuck to your head for quite a long time because it is just very addictive. It was also the setting of the performance that made me love it even more; especially since it was live it felt more real than hearing it on the radio.

Hollywood Bowl is what gives the performance a bit more…
