Genre: Musical

Tagline: One of Broadway's Legendary Musicals Comes to the Big Screen

Plot: Michael Ritchie brings the world's longest-running musical to the big screen with this good-natured American love fable. Bellamy (Joel Grey) and Henry (Barnard Hughes) are next-door neighbors and the fathers of two lovely children, Luisa (Jean Louisa Kelly) and Matt (former New Kids On The Block vocalist Joe McIntyre). The fathers bicker constantly, insisting that their children stay away from one another. Instead, the kids grow closer. When a circus rolls into town, and the fathers soften up and enlist the aid of El Gallo (Jonathon Morris) to help celebrate union of the two lovebirds, things don't go as planned. Matt and Luisa begin to question their relationship, and yearn for the mysteries that life has to offer outside their town's limits. Eventually, El Gallo deceives Luisa into realizing what she has at home, and she and Matt are reunited, deciding once and for all who--and what--it is that they want from life. Ritchie lovingly transfers the stage story into the expanse of the American West, providing a realistic backdrop for the supremely fantastical story. Featuring the unforgettable hit songs "Try to Remember," "Plant a Radish," "Soon It's Gonna Rain," "They Were You," and many others.
