In the film "Wall-E," the robot spent his free time watching the the film "Hello Dolly." He loves the movie, I don't. I saw the movie years ago, and it was pretty chopping at best. Carol Channing, who is wonderful in the Broadway version of the play, finds herself being cast aside by Barbra Streisand. I don't mind her being cast as Dolly Levi, but I don't like the movie. the musical numbers are memorable, but force. Walter matthau is miscast as were several cast members that could be used elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, I love Barbra Streisand very much. She comes off appealing and very sexy. I can't take my eyes off her, especiall in that scene when she sang "Hello Dolly" with Louis Armstronng. But that movie wasn't memorable. I wish a better director like George Cukor, who did "A Star is Born" in 1954 would have taken over this film instead of David Merrick. I could've been a better movie. I hate to trash musicals, but this musical is bad. Say good-bye dolly and leave the movie to Wall-E.
