Post Should I get the movie version of "A Chorus Line"?
Dear Musicals.Net Posters,

I was looking at the movie version of "A Chorus Line" while I was in the book/ movie store the other day, but I didn't get it, because I chose "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Into the Woods" instead.

Is the movie version of "A Chorus Line" any good? Should I get the movie, or is it really bad?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Like most movie versions of musicals I prefer the stage show but it's definately worth a watch. I own it.

I'm not a chorus line fan in general and the film isnt great but there are some strongm oments. particularly Audrey Landers as Val (her dance 10 looks 3 is brilliant) and Vicki frederucks as sheila.

Personally, I think it's terrible.

It's absolutely terrible.
In my eyes, a movie version of A Chorus Line has yet to be made.
