EyeballKid: rugman11: She's a multiple Grammy-Award winning singer who's also capable of drawing 8.50 million viewers for a televised concert special. She may not be able to act, but she's a legitimate performing artist.Wow, so she's on par with these legitimate performing artists.[madnews.files.wordpress.com image 431x300]
SunsetLament: I thought it was pretty good. I've never seen the movie, so I wasn't spending the entire three hours comparing it to something else. But as a three hour piece of television programming, I found it to be entertaining. I think some people have no idea how difficult putting on three hours of live TV like this can be - this was a stage show, not a TV movie.As for the people tied to the original film (including the Von Trapp descendants)? They should realize that there are thousands of people (like myself, I suppose) who never saw the original (and will never see the original) that will know their family's story because they watched this show. They should be appreciative that they got someone like Underwood to draw these (primarily young) people in.
DECMATH: I congratulate the writers though, for tightening the story. The dialog made the plot structure and motivation more obvious than in the movie.
mcgreggers99: Carrie....I love Jesus, Seriously, he is my savior, he died for my sins. I am in no way being sarcastic about my faith even though this is FARK. I am a sinner saved by grace, pure and simple.
DECMATH: Why single her out? Most of the actors gave what looked to me like a high-school-theatre performance. One guy (the admiral?) even obviously forgot a line! We only see the actors, but it's the directors who get what they want (or what they think they need) out of the actors, and if it's good enough for them, it gets no better.I congratulate the writers though, for tightening the story. The dialog made the plot structure and motivation more obvious than in the movie.
zedster: Madbassist1: You dont know what you're talking about.look at who has co-writer credits on her albums, it is like a who's who of Nashville song writers, it is not a bringing in a musician friend to help you find that one chord or one rhymeZappa always said he liked the monkees because they were as fake as everyone else but were honest about it, now we have 80s former stars and songwriters writing all the songs but they stay behind the scenes. Today's King and Geffen's are suppose to stay behind the curtain so that people can believe it is still real to them damn it.

propasaurus: Pretty safe to assume she's not gonna sleep with you, White Knight.

EyeballKid: LectertheChef: That's how a real artist, a real pro, deals with it.Well, there's your first red flag. Carrie Underwood is no artist. She's a game show winner who gets to sing other people'shiats while looking pretty.
