My teen daughters love this movie, and buying it from WalMart.com was really easy - I just picked it up at the store. I tried a couple of other stores, but they wanted more money and shipping, so this was a pretty good deal.
Great musical from Disney. I did not realize the future cast of \"The Dark Night\" is here (Bruce Wayne & Harvey Dent). Daughter's Dance team competed to music from Newsies. It was undefeated and earned Utah Valley Dance competition overall Advanced Division High Point. Fun routine with people in the stands knowing the songs. A good clean classic that should not be missed.
The movie, directed without a personal stamp of any kind by Chris Columbus, is so slick that the grime comes from a spray can and the grungy bohemian costumes look rented from a Betsey Johnson boutique sale.

It's real -- and, on screen, it's really cringe-worthy. Not quite Phantom of the Opera cringe-worthy, but not as much fun to blow raspberries at, either.
I have been unable to see Rent performed on stage, despite my extreme interest in the show. So I was thrilled when it became available in movie form. It is beautifully portrayed and very well done, exceeding my highest expectations. The new members of the cast integrated very nicely with the returning members, which eased my trepidations about the project tremendously. I highly recommend this movie!!!
Looked and looked for this movie for my grandson. Difficult to find but found it here and at the right price. Ordering was easy but pickup at my store is an entirely different matter. Never anyone at the pickup desk and even if a manager is standing around watching employees they will never jump in to help.....watch leaves me to believe that those people should never have a position that they can not do but yet manage others.....something is totally wrong with that picture.
