They Look Like They're Having Fun. I'm Not.
Clearly a labour of love, by people who really enjoy the original Harry Potter
source material, but also an extremely bland retrot of the original characters. The opening song was much more interesting
in that Disney Hercules
movie, the Americanitis
is an acute case (though hardly their fault), but above all, it's just unrewarding to watch. Characters sing about how great Hogwarts is, but nothing funny happens, what few jokes there are seem phoned in or just really generic, and it seems to ride too heavily on recognition. I'm supposed to say "Oh, look, it's Draco, a character I know, and he's a girl now. That's hilarious!" but instead I feel like The Nostalgia Critic
, bemused to find Yeardley Smith's voice in We're Back
I can only advise people to stick to Potter Puppet Pals

Dude, the joke in Potter Puppet Pals is that Dumbledore gets naked and Harry's a prick. And you think that's much better than AVPM?

Okay, okay, settle down. Man without a body is entitled to hisopinion and has explained why he came to that descision. That's what a review is meant to do. If you like the potter musical you still fully entitled to do that too.

It seems to me that everyone needs to just calm down a little. This is an ONLINE REVIEW. The only people who have the right to act outraged are the people that the review is about. Personally, I strongly disagree with the review, but I'm not going to freak out and start throwing curse words around. Wellinever is completely right. Just chill out people!

I don't mean to be rude, but I completely disagree with your review. For one thing, you tell people to stick to Potter Puppet Pals, and your reasons are the jokes and the Americanitis in this show. Potter Puppet Pals has just as bad Americanitis as A Very Potter Musical, and the jokes are pretty similar if you think about it (example: Harry's character is relatively the same, self absorbed to some extent and angsty). Many of the jokes have also nearly become catch phrases for fans of the series who see the musical (example: "What the hell is a Hufflepuff"). Though I know you are entitled to your opinion, this is just why I personally don't agree with it.

What I took away from this review is "don't watch AVPM if you're not a fan of the Harry Potter books." Guess that means I should skip it, since I've been avoiding those books for all 15 years of my life.

Haldo, may I ask why you're avoiding the books, right?

Even though i loved the movie i can see where your coming from just not all people like that kind of humor but, if your honestly saying ppp has a better plot excuse me for my crude language but what the fuck man. The lowest thing is avpm and ppp have just as good plots if avpm is not better so really if your going to hate avpm shut the heck up about ppp. And a note i don't hate PPP just in case if some of you are wondering.

Totally disagree, but you're certainly entitled to your opinion.

I disagree but I see the reviewers point. As someone who never read the books but had watched some movies i found it enjoyable and made me want to get more invested in the franchise but there were a lot of jokes that revolved around people knowing what happens in the books. In any case it was still an enjoyable experience and I think that if someone doesn't take it too seriously they'll still get a kick out of the musical for the music if not for anything else.
