Do you like movies about choirs practicing under the watchful eye of a gigantic, pretentious douchebag? Then have I found the movie for you! The… only movie that will fit your strangely specific criteria. You’re a fuckin’ weirdo, man.
It’s getting close to Christmas, and an amateur choir has decided to prepare Handel’s Messiah as their big Christmas song. That’s it, that’s the entire plot. There’s lots of singing and no conflict whatsoever. Hooray?
Um… this movie was boring, had annoying music, and the choral director guy made me want to punch him every time he said something, which was often. I can’t even really imagine a reason somebody would enjoy watching this movie.
