I am a big fan of the remake and hoped that I'd like this just as much, but unfortunately I didn't. Firstly I didn't realise it was a musical which was a major disappointment when 40 minutes in I was wondering where the songs were (and for a film with an amazing cast of singers eg. Debbie Harry, it would have made sense to let them sing!) Just didn't have as much life as the remake.
I love this movie!
