So I finally sat down with my girlfriend to watch this classic. It was an overall rather cozy experience. The film is very charming with likable characters performing catchy songs. The only real issue I have with it is that it's way too long and that the last act feels unnecessary, and even tonally wrong compared to the rest of the film."
DVD- 2hrs. 54min.
Of course, The Sound of Music is easily one of the most recognizable musicals ever, and that familiarity helps lend the film a certain amount of fun. It's superb in every technical department, as well as in it's casting (Andrews in outstanding). The biggest problem that the film has is it's bloated storyline, which could've been trimmed by probably 20 minutes and made better (it just keeps going). Still, its a strong film with several earworm songs.
