Filmed live on stage at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, CA, this not-to-be-missed high energy show stars Original Broadway cast members Jeremy Jordan as "Jack Kelly," Kara Lindsay as "Katherine," Ben Fankhauser as "Davey" and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as "Crutchie". They're joined by North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard as "Joseph Pulitzer," and Aisha de Haas as "Medda Larkin," and Ethan Steiner as "Les" along with members of both the Broadway and North American Tour ensembles, filling the stage with more "newsies" and more dancing than ever before. Set in New York City at the turn of the century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged 'newsies,' who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike and take a stand for what's right.

I have seen this movie many times and always enjoy it. The songs are catchy and the singing is good. The story line is simple and easy to follow. The cast is good and the actors are great. It is a great movie to see with the whole family. The music is catchy and it is fun to listen to. I recommend this movie to everyone. I also recommend the musical to anyone who likes musicals. I hope this review helps. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

In the beginning of Disney's Newsies, it feels like the music is not getting the job done for a real catchy tune. The songs, while not great, are still catchy. However, as the film moves along, the songs are more or less picked up and are good enough for the next song. In the end, the songs did get the job done, and were a solid sound track. The only weak link was the actress singing. She is not bad at all, but she could have been better at singing. Overall, the songs are catchy, and the director does a good job of getting the music right. The film is definitely worth seeing, and is not completely bad. Overall, this is a solid film, but it could have been a lot better.

This movie is one of the best musicals ever made. The songs are excellent, and the acting is very good. This movie is a true masterpiece, and it's one of my favorite movies. I have the original Broadway show on DVD, and I watch it every day. I have the movie version on DVD, and I watch it every day. I love this movie, and I think it's one of the best movies ever made.

I'll keep it short, if you haven't seen the movie already you'll probably like it. The film is really enjoyable to watch and they took a wonderful version of the story and made it more visually appealing. The animation was done very well and with a couple of exceptions the songs were pretty good. The music was also really good and had some really catchy songs. It was also funny. In the end this is not the best movie ever, but if you like Disney and songs it is a good way to pass the time, even if you didn't like the movie. I give it a B.

In the 80's, this movie was very well received, and is now being revived by Disney. While it is not exactly the same movie, it is a fun musical number with a great cast. The animation is beautiful and it is clearly a favorite with Disney fans. This movie was originally directed by John Musker and I think it is safe to say he didn't have the best ideas, but I am still excited about this movie. The animation is outstanding. The musical numbers are catchy and enjoyable, and I enjoyed the movie because I think it is fun and interesting. I do have a few problems. For one, it isn't as good as some of the other musicals Disney has made, like the house of the spirits, or the mermaid, but it is still enjoyable and has some great songs. I think I would recommend this movie to everyone, but there is nothing about it that I could truly recommend. I think it would be good for kids, but it isn't really something I would recommend. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys musicals, or just a great musical number.

This is one of my favorite Disney movies. They managed to tap into a lot of "adulthood" attitudes in this movie, in that it is most definitely not about love, or any kind of romance. The same can be said about the music. Those of us who love Disney musicals, especially in the case of "A Mighty Wind", will be thoroughly satisfied with this. But, there are a few really silly moments, and some scenes are too brief. But, Disney took a little bit of a gamble here. They used the one-dimensional characters to create a very funny and "dramatic" version of a musical. And, I would recommend that you do as well. "A Mighty Wind" has a very compelling storyline that I've never seen in a Disney musical before. This movie has the feel of a Broadway musical, in that it is full of the feeling of "realism". It was a pretty good movie, but if you are expecting a whole new Disney movie, you may be a bit disappointed.

The voice of 'Elvis' is certainly something that every child in the world will be familiar with. His amazing voice will sound like it came straight out of the live album 'It's a Great Life'. How this movie didn't win an Oscar or a Golden Globe is beyond me. I am still waiting for something in this movie that I didn't see. Why does it take seven years to get a new Elvis record? How come the rock star didn't lose the ability to sing when he was younger? Why don't these actors all sing well? Maybe I'm being too harsh, but why does every single character in this movie sound so samey? I'm not saying it's bad, but I just don't think I'm the only one who finds this annoying. It's not that this movie is bad, but it's just too tired and it doesn't really sound original.

For the most part, this was a pretty good movie. I watched it with my son on Saturday night and it really was enjoyable. The singing and dancing was really good. The songs were good and they fit the movie. However, some of the songs could have been better or at least more memorable. It wasn't bad, but not as good as it could have been. The story and characters were believable, but not as much as I would have liked. The movie just doesn't have the same intensity and excitement as The Music Man or the movie Desperate Living. Those two movies did it for me. It is a good movie and I would recommend it. It's a nice break from normal movies and I would recommend it for anyone who is into musicals. It's not the greatest movie I have ever seen, but it is a nice movie and definitely worth watching.

I saw the musical first, and was very disappointed. I'm just glad I went with friends, and had popcorn at the bar. The cast is amazing, I loved Jessie Mueller, Donald Faison, Ginger Rogers, and several other, smaller, singers. I really wanted to like it, but I thought I was going to be happy when I left, like I was going to see a holiday movie or something. It is, actually, a very, very, very good musical. The songs are well written, and the acting is outstanding. The story is so well done. A tragedy happens to the only living boy, but the magic of the play keeps it going. The mother was even good in her role. When I saw the musical, I was a little disappointed because the film wasn't in the theaters. So, I bought the DVD to see the film. The music is amazing, and so is the acting. The story is good, the lyrics are good, the sets and costumes are very good. They did a great job with the musical numbers, they also did a great job with the songs. I loved the stage performances, and I loved the singing. I don't really know what people were expecting when they went to see it. I saw it on Broadway, and it was a Broadway musical, not a Disney film, and it is a very good musical. It was wonderful to see the cast and crew of the show, as well as the songs and the actors. It is really a well done film, and I will buy it when it comes out. I think that the music is the star of the show, and I am glad I went to see it, but I think that there are a lot of people who may not like it, because the film was a hit on Broadway. But, I think that most people will enjoy it, because the music is so, so, good. It is a must see.

I must admit that I was not into the musical numbers that were made for the TV show, but I did like the movie a lot more. I think the movie did a great job at showcasing the show on stage. I think that the cast was really good. I was very impressed with the voices that were casted. I think the casting was good. The movie did a good job at portraying the show, and I really like how it was told. It wasn't like you were just there watching the actors sing, which can be really boring and can be distracting. I think the story line was very well thought out. The story was really good, and it wasn't like it was just thrown together, which can be bad. The story line was very well written, and I liked how it ended. The movie was very good at showcasing the show, but I think it could have been better. I think the music was very well chosen, and it was also very well done. I think that the movie did a great job at showcasing the show. I think it's a good movie to watch.

Of course, no version of "Newsies" will ever be as good as the one that actually appeared on Broadway in 1984. However, this theatrical production is well worth watching for fans of the show or the musical.

Barry Lyndon was a very good film. The one thing that bothered me about the film was how it ended. I was confused by this, I thought it was supposed to end at the end of the first act but it ended at the end of the second act. It was almost as if they cut off the last scene of the movie and changed it to a different ending. The movie had a very good cast and I was very impressed with the voice of Groucho Marx. I was also disappointed that they didn't include any original songs from the movie. I like how they took some of the best songs from the film, like the song 'Don't Stop Believin' and put it in a new and interesting way. I liked the song 'The Ballad of Buster Scruggs' but I think they should have added that to the movie. I thought the musical numbers were very good and I would like to see the movie in this version. Overall, I enjoyed the movie very much and I think it would be a good movie for younger children and teens.

First of all, I'm going to admit it: I was never a big fan of Broadway's Newsies. I remember I saw it for the first time on Broadway and it was a fun show to watch. But, I have to admit that it wasn't a great show either. The only reason I watched it a second time was because my grandmother has been singing it since she was a little girl. I think it's because it's a fun song that reminds her of all the things in life she remembers. So, I watched the Movie version of Newsies last night and it was actually a pretty good movie. The movie was funny, especially the first hour of the movie. The second half of the movie was kind of bad, but it still had some good parts. The only thing that I didn't like about the movie was that it was really kind of slow. The acting was good though. I was surprised to see that Johnny Depp played the lead character. He was really good at it. I can't say enough good things about him. There were some funny parts, especially with the song, and it had some good parts. I think the only thing that I didn't like was the music. I think it was kind of slow and didn't have the good parts that the movie had. Overall, I think the movie was a good movie. It had a good storyline, good music, and a good message. If you don't like Newsies, this movie is a great choice. If you do like it, this movie is a great choice. It was entertaining, but also a good movie. I liked it. I think it's a movie worth watching. I give it a B+

I saw this show at the theater when I was in high school, and I am now a college student. I love it. The movie is also great, but I just like the show better. I'm sure if you are a fan of the show, you will like this movie. The actors are great. The costumes are awesome. The songs are great. I recommend it to anyone who likes musicals.

I saw this on an airplane. Some of the people who were on the plane didn't like it at all. I think I liked it. There were some very funny bits here and there. The story is about a bunch of troublemakers who want to put their musical on the road, but are cut off by the mob. The singing is good, but I wouldn't pay to see it again. The Broadway stars are great. And the music is quite good. I give it 7/10.

Since I'm a huge fan of Disney, I always wondered what would happen if they made a musical movie, and since they made it with a lot of the actors and some of the songs from the TV show (and more than most TV movies do) I figured I'd be interested. I wasn't, but now I'm looking forward to the Broadway version of Disney's Newsies. (Or is it Royal Court?) I liked this movie a lot. It has plenty of jokes (the most famous of which is called "That's what a man's got to do") and the musical numbers (whoops, got some of the song's lyrics mixed up) are well done, with a decent cast. As for the story, I thought it was nice. I liked the characters and their stories. The girls are smart, sexy, and smart-alecky, the boys are dim-witted, but with enough wit and charm to be heart-touchingly funny. The voices of the stars of the show (Richard O'Brien, Rita Coolidge, and Margaret Hamilton) are all very good, and the voices of the others (the extra actors who act as themselves, and the singers) are decent as well. I loved the way the musical numbers were done, and it was nice to see the old Disney-composers appear in the film. And, yes, I loved the songs! I'm still humming "He's a Rebel Without a Cause" (with its memorable theme song and lyrics) over and over! It's nice to see how Disney got to be so popular when they made this. I was disappointed that no one, other than the cast and a few of the extras, were cast. And it's sad that they didn't make the story, or the songs, or the dancing, into a movie. But, hey, Disney.there's always next year. 7/10

This is one of the few musicals that I have ever seen, and it is a lot better than I thought it would be. The movie is a lot better than the TV show, and I am not sure why this is. I think it is because the movie is a lot more fun to watch. The movie has some of the best songs, and the songs are great. I also like how the movie was made, it is more like a stage play, and not like a movie. The movie has some funny parts, and some very sad parts. It is a very good movie, and I recommend it to anyone who likes musicals. I give it an 8/10.
