I bet fans of the stage production will be seriously content with Rob Marshall's adaptation. The quirky characters, the fantastic performances of Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick and even some of the musical moments were quite fantastic. For someone who has not seen or heard any of the music of this musical, it would take a while to warm up to its tunes...but it should nonetheless be seen. Strongly recommend this film to musical lovers. The only downfall could be its length..2 hours may have been too long! Regardless... It is a must watch.
