That's what happens when you take a stage musical and try to portray it on another medium - corniness ensues. That said, I think they did a pretty good job staying true to the story/script/songs, etc. But seeing it on Broadway is way better.
We saw Proof
last night... another stage adaptation. Again, the story works better on stage, but it was still very very good. Gwenyth Paltrow brought out a side of the character I hadn't seen portrayed before (a very subtle performance), and Anthony Hopkins is just, well, Anthony Hopkins - the man is a master.
I was pleasantly surprised by the acting and the stage to film transfer was ok, so I give it a 8/10
