A Lil’ Plot Info: Ya know what? Here. Just click on that link and listen to the title song from the film. It does a far better job explaining the setup than I would and, frankly, I don’t think you’d believe me if I told you, anyway. (But also, the song starts with a loud scream, so, adjust your headphones.)
Why I Think It Deserves A (Re)Watch: A little fun fact about me that no one asked for: I love musicals. Oh, what’s that? You want another fun fact? Okay: This is my favorite movie musical ever made. For real, real. It’s just so, so good. The music is incredible, the message of self-love and acceptance is timeless, and the humor (even 20 years later) never gets old. If you haven’t had the pleasure, watch it, I implore you.
