    We just sat through this film. The “score” was an endless loop of what can best be described as a cute jingle. Utterly lacking in in creativity; after hearing it monotonously repeated throughout the film it became as annoying as a TV jingle heard ad nauseam. Film scores can add so much to a film. Stephen Warbeck’s vapid ‘score’ in this film is the worst film score I’ve heard in over 60 years of film viewing.
