    Reader comments on De-Lovely

    Subject: de-flop

    Confused. Disappointed. Bored. That is me after two and a half hours of a poorly done movie. The movie made me dislike Cole Porter immensely. He comes across as a jerk, which he may have been. I was disappointed that the music was not truer to the original performances. And I was confused--is this an attempt to imitate the old musicals...or what, or not? Then there was the inclusion of African American performers on stage with Caucasian performers. Is that historically accurate? The story had no flow. And the modern renditions of his songs were just disappointing. Cole Porter's voice was much more appealing than Kevin Kline's. What WAS the purpose of this movie?
    On the positive side, the costumes were pretty. And Ashley Judd gave a performance that I found believable. I don't watch a lot of movies..and I think this may be the first time I have seen her in a movie.
    I would rather see a good documentary about him. There had to be much more to him than just homosexual relationships. That got old really quick! Tell me something worth knowing. Entertain me with something authentic.
