Where the Wild Things Are is a musical or a comedy?

Matthew Lucas said...

I did that since about half the score consists of original songs. Seemed like the best place to put it to me, even though the film isn't really a musical or a comedy.

Danny King said...

I can definitely see musical more than comedy, so I guess it works with the category. Nothing wrong with trying to praise the film's score, though. It's terrific.
