Oh please that's just pathetic. Music is music. And despite what you say the music does not have to follow anything. Do you say anyone trying to copy the famous masters exactly? The music was a perfect match to the movie. And insulting the movie? How can you insult it by calling it simplistic when your vocabulary consists of four letter words that cause you to sound hypocritical? The film was based off of a disney ride. It isn't suppose to be extremely deep. It tells a story of adventure and love. Have an open mind. Just because you don't like the movie doesn't mean you have to insult everything related to it.
