Doug, no one could argue that he didn't do a fine job. My personal experience was that on a giant screen, he seemed to be fantastic, but just listening to him on CD, it came off a little more ordinary. Obviously, he did not do his own yodeling -- someone like Dan Tyminski did. BTW, the only lip-synching that made me wince was John Turturro miming the yodeling -- it was like something out of "The Beverly Hillbillies". On the other hand, even for all that caricatured hopping around, the film did remind one that this was once popular entertainment and dance music, and that's good.

James.
