A Disney musical with an undistinguished score, fair to middling choreography, and clunky direction that still manages to be entertaining in spots because of its story. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- As a drama, it features potent material. But by presenting this as a musical, all hope is lost, thanks to imminently forgettable tunes and the casting of actors who can't sing. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Stop the presses! Newsies is the best live-action movie musical since Little Shop of Horrors. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- It's extremely earnest and more than a little corny, but there's an innocence about it that makes it kinda irresistible. Full Review
Rating: 1/4 -- ...manages some acrobatic dance numbers, but they seem oddly confined by the camera's frame. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/5 -- Certain movies engage your affections so strongly that, even if they start to fall apart, you tend to keep rooting for them. That's pretty much the case with Newsies. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
The 1899 New York newsboys' strike is the subject of this full-scale musical set against a stylized backdrop depicting turn-of-the-century New York City. In a series of rousing song and dance routines, choreographer/director Kenny Ortega chronicles the "newsies'" struggle with publishing mogul Joseph Pulitzer, their battering at the hands of strikebreakers, and their eventual triumph over the powerful newspaper establishment.
