As an interesting historical drama, the film mostly works. Throw in some great humorous moments, strong acting from a young Christian Bale, and the catchy and inimitable soundtrack, and the film becomes that much better.

I didn't like about half of the boys actors here (especially the cringe worthy character 'Crutchy'). However, this is an average musical that easily passes the time.

A great movie about Newsies. Lots of good songs and big dance numbers. The story is good as well. Also, young Christian Bale who is adorable.

He is followed by his partner, the good boy David Jacobs, and his cute little brother Les, and the rest of the grungy street rat boys in their crusade against Pullitzer.
