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.
Yeah, the Critic pretty much summed up my thoughts as well. Thin story, iffy moments? Sure. Engrossing as hell, fun to watch, glorious music? Oh yes. Total guilty pleasure, but Baz just nailed it.
