And I really liked it.
Never saw it before. I’ll have to watch it again with Jay (he comes home tonight) and then I’ll know if I love it or if it was just a sweet diversion to share with my girls while waiting for Daddy to get home.
I think it’s poor arguing to define things by what they’re not, but I like that this movie had no bad behavior from the leads. It also avoided most bad language and portrayed relationships with parents as a valuable part of life.
I liked that much of the music was part of the story (rather than exclusively soundtrack-building), and the father-daughter dance theme was precious.
Some favorite lines:
Father: I’m not explaining this very well, am I?
Daughter (Daphne): No, not really. But I’m having fun watching you try.
Step-mother-to-be: Now Daphne, we don’t want to make a scene now, do we?
Mother: Take your hand off my daughter or you won’t get a scene, you’ll get a Broadway Musical!
