This film adaptation of the Broadway musical based loosely on Puccini's opera La Bohème features many members of the original cast. It follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York's East Village. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger (Adam Pascal), Mimi (Rosario Dawson), Tom (Jesse L. Martin), and Angel (Wilson Jermaine Heredia); Maureen (Idina Menzel) deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne (Tracie Thoms), wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin (Taye Diggs) has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark (Anthony Rapp), an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording the events but never playing a part.

OMG, I love this movie. Only thing that confuses me is how director of Harry Potter has any thing to do with this? In this movie, we learn about love, and family, in a rock opera manner. This made me cry in thearter, but hey, it was still good, especially in the beginning.Man, I can relate to this more than I did with 'Phantom.'

lol Mamahuhu means so-so in Mandarin. But aside from that, let it beknownst that I am a RENThead, and a Larson-Lover, and all of that. In short: I love RENT. I love the music, the lyrics, the acting, every aspect of it. HOWEVER, the soundtrack was not better than the original. The acting was not as good as the original. The direction was not as good as the original. I tried to look optimistic, but it just fell short. I have a major beef with Chris Columbus. HE SUCKS. He said, "Hey. I like this play. It would make money." Everyone said "fine". He says "give me the original actors, some money and a camera and I'll let them do their thing." THERE WAS NO DIRECTION. He let them sing the songs and actualy say some of the songs which kinda sounded ridiculous, but he didn't have a single input. The movie was good. I bought it. But it was NOT the original. And it's a mistake to think it is.

I did not care for this musical at all. The subject matter was probably more off-putting than the music. It was extremely dark and depresing. Not what I generally look for in entertainment.

I can't say a single thing I didn't like about this DVD. The movie and the special features are simply spectacular... Do yourself a favor and get it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is a must see. Living with the virus that encompasses this entire feature really makes it truly hit home. Although one wouldn't need that minute detail to feel the energy and power that this film embodies. I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone, it will truly touch your heart and push you to tears many times over.

if you are like me and know everyword of R.E.N.T. it was weird hearing it spoken with out certain musical arrangements and it took me like a good 20-25 minutes to get into the movie but once you get past that you see this brilliantly-witty and amazing movie that's not just for the homosexual community , but for all humanity. the entire word should see this film and i bet the most closed minded of people singing the word..AMAZING!

I've seen this movie twice, and it has touched me each time. I own the soundtrack and listen to it.... all the time!!! its not a movie for little kids or homophobes. I could REALLY RELATE to their emotions. I literally cried when the climax ((which i wont ruin for you)) hit. it was by far THE best movie i've ever seen. if you cant follow the lyrics, you wont really follow the movie that well,but do your best because its a movie i feel EVERYONE MUST SEE! i have counted down the days until it comes out and i'm getting pretty emotional because it comes out in 3 days!!! i literally cried when it got this close and i'm getting even more emotional about it as it gets closer and closer to hitting the shelves.

This is an incredible adaptation of the Tony award-winning broadway musical. The poignant masterpiece is directed by Chris Columbus (who also did Mrs. Doubtfire and the first two Harry Potter movies), and I must say he did a fantastic job! Rent's cast gives a notable performance that will stay in the audience's hearts forever. A fine film with love and loss, Rent is a tremendous success. Highly reccommended.

RENT WAS AWESOME. That is all to it. I did not know there was a Broadway version but I both enjoyed both versions. (musical and movie.) It made me cry during 'Without You.' It makes you realize there is 'no day but today' and we should live it. I also loved 'La Vie Boheme' as the bohemians of Avenue A make fun of their lives and the lives of other people. To them, it was just that day to forget their problems. It truly shows "today for you,tommorrow for me."

The music is GREAT, the story line is wonderful but the two together is utter chaos. It makes the movie senseless and almost seems to mock the issue on the movie. If it were a movie without the music, I would love it or if it were just the music in and of itself, it would be great...but the two together make for an awkward combination. But I can see why it would appeal to some people.
