...yeah, no blood, no tits, nothing blows up,...what a frackin' waste of time.

Singing and dancing make some people happy, but they just make me hate everything. There have been plenty of movies that I've enjoyed that don't have tits or explosions or blood, but Sound of Music isn't one of them.

You're right. Even before your responses, I was thinking of posting a semi-retraction. Not everybody who dislikes the movie is as I characterized them in my post. (just, I would wager, the vast majority, but you may be exceptions)
Serbia, have you seen Fiddler on the Roof
