Originally I had band practice last night and the wife was going to see this on her own. Due to a late cancellation of practice I begrudgingly went a long to this film with a view of "oh dear, this is going to be terrible". I was certainly pleasantly surprised when we got to the foyer and got free burritos and free beer (and good selection of burritos too; chicken, pork and vegie). My wife had one of the margaritas and exchanged it for a beer straight away saying that they were pretty horrible.

Thankfully after the awful organisational skills of the previous night's screening of Sinister this wasn't the case tonight and we could make our way up to the screen at any point so I think we were about the 10th people to go into the screen around 6.30pm and got great seats in the middle whilst everyone else was still milling around downstairs.

Now I must say that I was really really surprised by the film and certainly was not what I had gone in expecting. It was very funny and enjoyable. Some great lines, some good music, was upbeat and kept moving at a good speed. I could certainly see this being a surprise hit such as 'bridemaids'. Good to see people applauding at some of the funny bits as well as the music bits.

So...went away feeling pretty upbeat from this movie and would certainly recommend people to go and see it and have a laugh. I can't stand Glee and all that stuff but thought this was a great little bit of comedy with some very enjoyable characters :)

p.s. as someone who used to work in music retail is was fun spotting all the music related product placements :-p although I don't think my wife was too impressed with me going "ohhh traktor Le...ohhh mackie srm350s..." :p

Did anybody else find it weird how the movie ended?

[spoiler]I mean, it cuts to the end-credits while a character is in mid-sentence.
That was weird! It felt almost like the punchline was missing.[/spoiler]
That probably doesn't deserve a spoiler tag but it's there just in case.

Oh hang on a sec here... does this mean that this needs to go on the 'to-watch' list? :blink:

Haha! Well, I enjoyed it. I wouldn't recommend it to everybody as there is a fair bit of singing and dancing, but the cynical humor more than makes up for it.

Here's my review from Thursday:

This was such a surprise treat, I'm kind of a regular glee watcher, but that was so inferior in comparison. It wasn't even that embarrassing when they sung! Great cast, nice broad humour, and even some catchy mash-ups

You're going to be disappointed. It's not at all cheesy. It's just a damn load of wicked fun!
