Acceptable Screen Adaptation of a Great Broadway Musical
9 December 2005 | by Isaac5855See all my reviews

Lee Remick and Hal Linden take on the roles of Agnes and Michael in I DO! I DO!, the musical adaptation of THE FOURPOSTER, which follows 50 years of marriage of a couple and the bumps they encounter along the way in married life. Mary Martin and Robert Preston originated these roles on Broadway and made this two-person musical a unique and enjoyable musical experience and that is the problem with this adaptation...this musical was truly meant for the stage and it definitely looses something being transferred to the TV screen. The score by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt (THE FANTASTICKS) includes "I Love My Wife", "Love Isn't Everything", "Nobody's Perfect", and the classic "My Cup Runneth Over." Remick and Linden work hard in their roles. Remick shines especially when she lets loose on the showstopping number "Flaming Agnes". but this musical is definitely better suited for the stage.
