I know Big Fish didn't do too well on Broadway, but I really enjoyed it. It has two huge things going for it: the fact that the story will MURDER YOUR EMOTIONS and, also, Norbert Leo Butz.
I don't even really like Lippa, but I did enjoy basically all the music from this.
I only saw the movie Big Fish once. Or, maybe, I only saw part of it once. There is even the possibility that I only saw the END of the movie. Whatever it is that I saw, I know that I cried and cried and cried. I haven't watched it again, even though I really liked it, because I have been unable to emotional prepare myself for that, again.
I'm sad I missed this on Broadway.
