Christian Bale before he turned into a doucher...
I got Newsies for Christmas from my brother's girlfriend. Ricky and I drank a bottle of red wine while watching it for the first time, and the commentary flew:
I like how Disney's response to 1980's Reaganomics is to make a Communist musical.
Santa Fe in 1890? I bet it's a bunch of depressing Indian reservations.
This is pretty much a little girl's wet dream: cute newsboys singing and dancing.
How can I sell papes if I'm in 18 hours of dance class?!
Why is Bill Pullman trying to be sexy with Newsies?
There's a creepy albino kid!
If Teddy Roosevelt sings a song, I'm going to shit myself and turn this movie off.
~Ricky (fortunately, he didn't)
It's kind of a Deus Ex Machina ending, but Teddy Roosevelt is God. Everything is going to shit, and Teddy shows up and says "everything is fixed!"
