186. January 22, 2011 - Romance & Cigarettes (2005)

I don't understand why they chose to make this into a musical. If John Turturro (who wrote and directed - notice he has not written or directed since) had gone with a straight gritty comedy, this might actually have been worth watching. The story is pretty simple, but simple doesn't have to be bad. I just don't understand why everyone had to burst into song every five minutes. Especially the weird scene that included the women in bright red teddies. And Kate Winslet singing underwater - Titanic was in 1997. And she may have been underwater, but she certainly wasn't singing. Don't waste your time or your Netflix queue spot with this one.
My Netflix rating: 2 stars
