CGiii Comment

In all fairness...we weren't exactly tickled pink about watching this!

What a pleasant surprise...it's not bad at all.

Let's face it, the story makes absolutely no sense at all...and, those songs! Not exactly toe-tapping, karaoke faves!

But...they threw money at this...and it stuck (in places).

The much-hyped 'gay' bit...in fact, there are two outre 'gay' bits involving a rather brutish musketeer...but, 'LaFou' - who is as camp as bejewelled tits - injects 'gay' bits into every scene he's in! Josh Gad certainly revels in his role...but, as a nod to modernity [by the Disney execs]...well, let's just say they still have quite a way to go...it's just a wee bit too reminiscent of those Hollywood sissy characters...a figure of [poking] fun!

Take it as it is...A Disney extravaganza...and, a thoroughly enjoyable time will be had by all!
