Nelson and Jeanette are costars in the longest-running awful musical on Broadway and are about to take it on the road. They’re married, but have a tiff. What will become of them?
They’ll prance around, pretend to be mad, and make up by the end of the movie. After many truly awful songs and scenes.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love N and J. I love musicals. But as they go, this was not a good example. Mr. Otter said, AFTER IT STARTED, that he had seen it as a teen and it was so bad it had scarred him for life. Could he have mentioned this sooner? Evidently not.
As they say of Mt. Fuji, everyone who loves musicals, and especially Nelson and Jeanette, should watch this once. Only a fool would watch it twice.
