The music and dance numbers range from funny and catchy to dull and boring. And the movie seems to focus first on being a musical and then on telling a compelling story. It seems like they mapped out a set of dance numbers and then constructed the film around those. One of the reasons why I liked La La Land so much was that it felt like a movie first and then a musical. And the dance numbers weren't just a vehicle to exposition, which is the case for some of the scenes in this movie.
