Do directors have any sense? Are they employing teenagers to do the background sounds? This is NOT a Walt Disney Animation where one needs sounds because no one actually speaks in the movie! I felt like I was watching Fantasia! I can hardly make out the voices of the actors due to the racket of the sound track which really should be faint and in the background! This feature is pretty bad, but it’s not the only movie which has overbearing background “music”! When one watches movies made in the 50s, 60s, 70s even 80s at least we can hear the spoken words! Now if not for the “realistic” traffic noises in a street/outdoor scene where there is indistinguishable dialogue, the majority of the presentation is drowned in excessively loud music! OK, I am not a young kid with perfect hearing, but I am not deaf! As for the movie, very predictable.
