Most of the critics who has already seen the movie, like the humor, the comedy and the amazing songs from the film. Some of them think that the humor is a little bit rude. So, the critics have not found consensus yes. But the movie have got 88% of positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes site, and the average rating is 6.2/10.
The comedy that consists of numerous songs should not be discussed. It is just worth seeing and listening to the great music.
