    Maybe the tamest Disney film I've ever seen.

    If it had been released in 2002 it probably would have found some moderate success. I have no idea why this was made now. The genre is dead unless it's a biopic, which it isn't.

    Also has the same problem for me that all the other films in this genre do. The music which is supposed to be mindblowingly amazing is at best poor to average. All the characters are sitting around acting…
