I haven't watched a lot of musicals, but is it common for film versions to tone down the instruments a bit (compared to the stage versions)?

Yes, but the original link posted is not there, so I posted a new link.
Ah, sorry, I misunderstood you.
As far as I know, no it's not common. Usually a full orchestra plays the music in a movie, while in a stage production, it's a much smaller ensemble. Then again, the music could still be done by a full orchestra but the music arranged differently. If I remember right the movie version Buenos Aires is much more up tempo than the stage version.
Imogene, get serious! Who do you think you're talking to?! I've known you for 27 years, and all I can say is, if God was giving out sexually transmitted diseases to people as a punishment for sinning, then you would be at the free clinic all the time! And so would the rest of us!
