This film was my first exposure to the musical. I'd never heard the music. Never seen it staged. Never read the book it's based on. Nothing. I knew absolutely zero about the thing.
Probably helped me enjoy it more. And while I think the thing has some major strengths, I would be lying if I said I wasn't slightly disappointed. My expectations were high. I was expecting a home run. I got a crucial stand-up double that allowed a runner to score.
