Looking for another Moulin Rouge, this one fails. While the movie is beautiful, it is never fun. Even when Toby tells you how much he loves NYC and it is the golden city where anything can happen, he seems depressed. You never find yourself lost in the roar of the 20s, lost with the characters in a moment. Everything is a long, slow creep towards something sad. The movie is a long, flat, one note--meehhhhh.
