    I legitimately loved a lot of this especially for the first hour but honestly by the time I was a couple hours in I was just begging for it to end already.  Way too much.  Sorry to be a party pooper, it was just kind of overwhelming.  Probably would have preferred a straightforward story about these characters going through a rough patch financially and emotionally in their singleverse.

    ★★★★½

    One of those movies that I waited too long to watch so that I was hyper-aware the whole time that my viewing experience was altered by preconceived notions and references.  It is great and I thought it was great, but I also think I had too high of expectations for it to be something completely transcendent and unexpected and what I got was a movie that I essentially feel like I’d seen before even though I hadn’t.  Obviously (but I’ll say it anyway) it’s got great performances and is brilliantly shot.

    Never saw it as a kid because it felt most explicitly like “the one for girls” which really is a shame.  Obviously it’s hard not to be aware of a lot of it, especially the music, but it all really held up.  Might this be the best Disney soundtrack?  Anyway, obviously overdue but I loved it.
