** Does the movie's {{retool}}ed script ruin the musical, or does the movie feel entertaining enough in its own right? While NBC's musicals usually undo the most drastic changes their respective movie adaptations did, the network's ''Bye Bye Birdie'' does follow the film's suit of relocating Birdie's ''Ed Sullivan'' performance from the halfway point, to near the end.

** After Creator/{{NBC}} [[https://www.twitter.com/jlo/status/806687527960604672 teased]] their own version of ''Bye Bye Birdie'', viewers of said teaser seem divided between people who don't mind another screen version, and people who wish NBC picked a musical that doesn't already have [[AdaptationOverdosed two screen adaptations]]. After the channel's production of ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'' scored the lowest ratings yet of any musical televised live on a network during TheNewTens, concerns arose over whether or not NBC needs to find a story more familiar than ''Bye Bye Birdie'' in order to WinBackTheCrowd, and whether or not the star power of such cast members as Music/JenniferLopez could attract enough viewers. The former party might have gotten their way, when NBC announced that they would push back ''Bye Bye Birdie'' a year, and put on ''Theatre/JesusChristSuperstar'' a few months before it.

** The 1995 TV special followed the play more closely, but some viewers still found reason to like it less than the movie, such as calling its new songs {{Padding}}.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: When Creator/{{NBC}} hired Harvey Fierstein to update the script for their telecast, he updated some details of Albert's, Rosie's, and Birdie's backstories, to try and make it seem less sexist. Instead of just a secretary romantically involved with her boss, Rosie became Birdie's music teacher, who helped him get discovered by suggesting he record a song Albert wrote.
