    Newsies is amazing, but that's just my opinion. If you love musicals then you will undoubtedly love it, but if that's not your thing you might not like it as much. The acting is phenomenal and the choreography is just *chef's kiss* amazing. The lyrics are carefully and cleverly written, so I would recommend watching it with subtitles. Overall I would recommend it to ages 7 and up (there is some mild swearing and a few fight scenes, but it's all necessary to the story), but my 6 year old sister watched it and loved it as much as I did.

      Newsies was amazing! I liked the part where Race said, " I'm famous! " Race did look kinda handsome. The movie was spectacular! I can't wait to see if they have a second Newsies movie.

          I love this movie so much!It has incredible talent and great music and an amazing cast.I recommend watching the music with full volume because it is so great and the choreography is so good. The only thing I don't like about it is the annoying little boy that sells papers with the older guys. Lol.

              This is such a good musical!!!!! it is about poor boys who carry the newspapers to people. Once there is a raise with the price on the "papes", they demanded a STRIKE! This is basically the French Revolution, New York style!! Totally recommend it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "The world is your erster. you know the fancy clam with the pearl inside?!"

                  I love this! So amazing! The story is so powerful, the characters are so moving. It makes you want to laugh and cry and stomp and yell, all at the same time!

                      I went to see this on Broadway. Extremely good BTW. The movie was really good, and there were different people in it that when I went to see it in NYC. The only odd part was that it actually had an intermission. I am dead serious. Just saying, who goes to the movies for a 15 minute break during the movie?

                        It's a musical. Singing takes a lot of energy out of you... They also need a break. I should know... I sing my heart out to Alexander Hamilton! I always end up chugging a water bottle after I'm done. So next time don't be so upset about the breaks the performers take.
