Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

From the musical with absolutely ingenious music by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber comes this direct-to-video delight. Fortunately, it keeps the ear-catching, toe-tapping tunes intact in the form of strung together music videos. If you enjoy the music from the play then by all means, watch this video tape! Unfortunately, no great lengths have been taken in turning this into a fully-functional movie. The sets are annoyingly cardboard, the cast has a tendency to overplay their parts and the directing is amateurish. This would all work perfectly on stage, but in a movie, I don't think so. Therefore, this film is for listening purposes only! The music is great and you ought to enjoy it!
