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: 2/4 -- Newsies is a live-action musical, but it's only barely alive. Call it Snoozies. Full Review

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.

Determined to make their dreams come true, a courageous group of newsboys become unlikely heroes when they team up to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon.
