Two stars and that's being kind. No story. Bad dancing. Even if the stars were not good dancers they could've had actual dancers performing around them. This is not a throwback to old Hollywood. Those movies had good story lines and talented dancers. Watch Singing in the Rain - now that's a musical!

Darn near perfect!!!!

Very good Emma stone is awesome in everything she does but this one is a game changer she has a singing voice like an angel and Ryan gosling plays a very cool collected character just hits it out of the park

Unique movie for these times. But as far as musicals go, it is flat and a flop; compared with the famous musicals of yesteryear (My Fair Lady, Oklahoma, Riverboat, The Music Man...). the dancing and singing are very "lite" - no emotion. Opening sequence of dancing is dreadful- comprised of simple twirls, spins and flips on cars in traffic.. Some attempts at dream sequences, but do not succeed. The pace drags in many places. Gosling plays his character believably; Stone plays her character too superficially. No melodies that one can go away with humming. One star for the uniqueness, one star for Gosling's performance.

I knew it was a musical so... I loved the music and dance. I didn't feel it was too much. Fun story, I recommend it if you like this type of movie.

Didn't like the ending, was very good until then. It kept me attentive. Great movie to bring your girlfriend to.

A refreshing change from the usual run of movies. They might have chosen main characters with better singing voices.

Not sure what movie did all these negative reviews saw - I saw a great re-imagining of the traditional movie musical genre that is very much for today. The fact that the two leads are not the strongest singers or dancers makes the film more approachable and realistic. It's a great companion piece to Chazelle's earlier work, Whiplash. Both films are about dreamers - how far will they go to attain their dreams and what are the consequences once attained. Chazelle is the real star of this; excited to see what he does next!

save your $$, even the big new seats can't save this flop. gosling and stone are not strong in the song/dance parts, miscast, plot is dragging, didn't wait to see the end, how does Hollywood hype this sad attempt at entertainment?

The frequent song and dance numbers sabotage an otherwise compelling narrative.

How in gods name did this stupid movie goet the nomatied and win golden globe awards

Ryan and Emma cant really sing. The plot is slow and plodding, particularly in the middle. I was bored.

Expected it to be much better given all the hype. Would have liked more dancing and singing. Story was weak. Emma Stone however was the only bright spot. And the best part of the movie was the end but it took a long time getting there! Ryan Gosling. Please don't sing

Monday, January 9, 08:06:14 PM

Cannot understand the Golden Globes,this movie sucks..!

Monday, January 9, 12:44:23 PM

Loved this movie!!! It was beautiful to watch and took you away. I love that it simply entertained me and left me with a good feeling when I left. We need more delightful movies like this! Musical score was perfect

It was a fun musical but it missed being a grand musical like those decades ago. The actors seemed to just miss the connection between the characters. The acting was OK but not particular great. Some of the dance scenes were unique and creative; the storyline was a little confusing initially. The best part was toward the end of the movie when Ryan Gosling's character takes a moment to re-live the romance with Emma Stone with a few seconds of silence before playing "their song" on the piano. It was touching and nearly took my breath away.

Ethereal and complex

Boring boring boring????????

My wife and I both fell asleep because the plot was so shallow and slow moving. When the plot finally got going a little bit, about 90 minutes into it, it flashed forward five years. The music and dancing were good, which is the only reason we did not rate this movie a 1-star, but it did not have a happy ending. It lasted over 2 hrs., but it could have easily been over in less than 90 minutes.

Sunday, January 8, 09:38:31 PM

Choreography and singing not good enough. No comparison to old Hollywood musicals. Very disappointing.

Sunday, January 8, 09:07:34 PM

A return to the old-fashioned Hollywood musicals. Never meant to be more than simple eye-candy enjoyment. If you want to be depressed or can't suspend the disbelief enough to get a kick out of a song and dance number on a freeway, this isn't the movie for you. It's entertainment, pure and simple.

Sunday, January 8, 08:23:37 PM

A beautiful romantic-musical!! Loved it!

Saturday, January 7, 01:06:02 PM

Previous review said I walked out after 5 minutes. I meant to say 45 minutes. Sorry.

Saturday, January 7, 01:04:50 PM

Walked out after 5 minutes. The opening should have been telling when a phony freeway dance scene opened up during a traffic jam. Both main characters were card board cutouts of what was to be a boy meets girl love story. The purist jazz pianists could manage to improvise effectively on Xmas songs to make them sound like anything but a Target store shopping score... The girl was vapid and dull.. Finally could take anymore. But then -- The only musical I've ever really liked was Three Penny Opera.

Didn't live up to the hype. It's only fair.

I was disappointed in this movie although I was ready to embrace the idea of and old-fashioned musical. I found it somewhat long and slow, and the singing wasn't as good as I hoped for....maybe that's why they don't show any clips of Ryan Gosling or Emma Stone singing in the trailers. The storyline and the dancing were alright, but the movie is overrated in my opinion.

Thursday, January 5, 07:39:56 PM

Loved this movie - I'm not usually a fan of musicals, but I loved this. Kind of an old Hollywood feel. Great story

Wednesday, January 4, 11:19:06 PM

Lame dancing, choreography and singing. Complete disappointment.

Wednesday, January 4, 08:18:36 PM

You must remember it is a musical fantasy It is charming Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are great together. But she is luminescent. Emma Stone gives. Fabulous performance.

Wednesday, January 4, 04:05:01 PM

Just loved it!!!, so beautiful, great acting!

Tuesday, January 3, 04:53:57 PM

Left after 20 minutes. Thought it would get better after opening scene. Not worth my time.

Tuesday, January 3, 12:54:58 PM

Casting for this movie was poor. The first 20 minutes left me sleepy and the rest was just disjointed

Tuesday, January 3, 10:37:19 AM

it's perfect

Monday, January 2, 03:21:42 PM

This is a complete reinvention of the musical for our time. As the W. Post said "Characters do not break into song as much as slide into it." More than palatable - for the right audience member - I suspect most - it is a perfect film from start to finish, with a poignant and lingering reward and feeling,.

Monday, January 2, 12:10:16 PM

Sleeper. Boring...

Sunday, January 1, 03:15:53 PM

This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time...I loved every minute of it

Sunday, January 1, 01:01:04 AM

Loved the movie. It had my attention from beginning to end. Loved the story, the dancing, the acting, the photography...Loved all of it!
