Well, I’m not going to go as far as to say I hated it, but I definitely did not like it. This is a film that looks like a very badly-made music video. To be frank, the only actor I enjoyed here (both the acting and the musical numbers) was – surprisingly – Jamie Foxx. Everybody else was decent, but I simply can’t comprehend why anybody would put Cameron Diaz in any film at all. She’s a horrible, terrible actress! Her over-acting was giving me sore eyes and this experience once again reinforces my own private rule: never watch a film with her in it because it’s guaranteed to be crap.
The singing itself was not cringe-worthy, but obviously not live in a painfully apparent way and the voices of some singers were digitally enhanced to the point it got ridiculous and annoying. Boo.
On the plus side, the directing was truly fantastic here, as well as the editing. This had some hard sequences with all the singing and dancing and stuff but they got through that without any hitches.
All said, this is not one I would watch again.
