I hated Moulin Rouge. I thought it was the stupidest thing ever. It had all those great actors and lavish sets and yet was nothing more than two hours of vacuous crap.
I don't understand its popularity at all.
Guilty pleasure, least for me. I just love the look and the feel of the world. I will grant ya' the story is a bit on the light side and doesn't take a lot of investment from the watcher.
A really funny and pretty dead on review by the Nostalgia Critic in regards to Moulin Rouge
