I'm an Altman fanboy, so my opinion may be biased: I loved this film. I loved how every detail was so lovingly crafted to elicit a mix of humor and nostalgia. I love how the whole thing is an allegory on growing old. I loved that closer, and how it essentially closed out Altman's career. I loved the musical numbers and how they fit in every scene. I loved it, and anyone who hated it needs to re-evaluate what he looks for in movies. There's so much going on in this movie: how can it be boring?
A delightful, endlessly entertaining film. There's actually quite a lot going on, but as in many Altman films, the main narrative is found in watching how the actors/characters interact with each other.
I can understand the hate about this movie, but I loved the bittersweet nostalgia, the allegory about life and death and the music.
And goddamn: Meryl Streep!
