- Copy righted1 star

Its basicly a copyright of the original thing which was the musical

- Best Movie Ever!!!5 star

This movie is such a classic and includes wonderful musical numbers that make you love the characters that are apart of the story. 👍🤗😍🥰😀

- The best movie ever5 star

I love this movie it should w what it was like for kids back then.

- It’s the best. I have nothing else to say.5 star

One of the best musicals I have ever seen.

- And the world will know...5 star

that Rotten Tomatoes is STILL full of crap. 39%?! COME ON, MAN!! This is one of the best movies of the 90s; right up there with Jurassic Park, Toy Story 2, and Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (yeah I said it!) The music is some of the best from Alan Menken, and the script is really good too. The film starts out slow and it made me think I was watching a Ken Burns documentary... but five minutes later, you’re bobbing your head to the music. A powerful story of kids in the 1890s and their struggle against the rich and powerful. Definitely a must-see!

- newsies5 star

soo good

- An oldie to rave about!5 star

I’ve seen this movie as a kid and still watch it as an adult today! Love it!

- Amazing!5 star

I love this movie! It is very good and has an amazing soundtrack and a really good storyline!

- Love it!!!5 star

I loved dis movie

- Amazing!5 star

I am a true musical freak! And this is the best musical ever! I have seen this on Broadway, own the soundtrack and movie! The cast is so hot!

- Ehh3 star

This movie is great. I'm not going to lie. But after listening to the Broadway version, this will never be as good. The singing is better on Broadway (no offense to the cast) and so are the songs as well as the story. I know the movie came first but this time the sequel, if that is what you would call it, is better than the original. I grew up loving musicals and I really liked Newsies. Now that I am older and I have listened to the Broadway version, this will never be good enough for me.

- Best movie ever:)5 star

A great movie for all ages. This is personally my favorite and it is very inspiring and it always brings a good laugh to the table. I highly recommend buying this!

- Newsies YAY!!5 star

You can actually buy it now on iTunes! I love this movie, newsies became my favorite all time musical the very day it came out, and still has been since then! I sing the songs in my head and hum their tunes very often lol

- NEWSIES5 star

A fantastic film to show to young ones, teens, or anybody! It's very historical. I absolutely loved seeing it on Broadway. This film changed my life! 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- AMAZING😱5 star

I was a little apprehensive of watching this because musicals aren't my fav, but my friend finally convinced me and OMG!! This movie is one of my favs now and I can quote basically the whole movie dialogue and songs!! Everything is amazing from the actors to the character portrayal to the musical numbers!! I would give this movie 10 stars if it let me!! This movie is comical, heart wrenching, and heart warming!! I recommend this to everyone!!


I've loved Newsies since I first saw it. If you aren't watching this, or have never seen it. Buy it. I know you'll love it. Newsies is the best movie ever.



- BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!5 star

I absolutely love Newsies. It is the best movie ever.The critics are so wrong about the 40 percent. Newsies deserves a 100 percent.

- newseis4 star

grate movie, good plot but with a weird twist

- The best movie5 star

This is the best movie in the whole universe !!!! I am SOOO glad I was able to buy it. I watched it a few times and then didn't have any more time to watch it so I'm redownloading it ( I somehow deleted it but I didn't mean to i love newsies ) and watching it in the car to my dance competition tomorrow I can't wait

- Awesome Movie I Got To See It Live!!!5 star

No, Newsies. I'm the king of New York.

- Newsies is my life!5 star

"I need space, not just air! Let 'em laugh In my face, I don't care!"

- AMAZING5 star

I seriously love this movie so much!! Maybe even too much... I seriously think everyone should watch it!!

- Best movie ever5 star

This is the best movie I ever watched. I watched it about 15 times in one week! I know all the songs. I give this a 5 star rating!!!!!!!!😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋😋

- I love this movie5 star

I think the newsies is a great movie and it is based on a true story. I wish the school I go to would do this musical. I just don't know if there would be enough boys to do the musical. But I wish they would lower the price for me to buy the musical for my iPhone.

- What is this?!5 star

Apparently anyone on iTunes has never even watched this movie, seeing as they are not basking in its childhood-like glory! The movie is way better than the musical, and Christian is 10x greater than that Jeremy or whoever guy is playing Jack Kelly on Broadway. You critics need new glasses. Anyways, we want to BUY the movie, not rent it. How are we supposed to buy it if it costs $17.99?

- The newsies5 star

A cult classic for us 80's kids that grew up with Disney and the Disney channel in its hey day. A must watch for any musical lover with light hearted comedy about serious penniless child labor problems of early twentieth century, an amazing true story.

- Don't rent, BUY!5 star

This has to be my favorite movie of all time, and not only because Christian Bale is in it. This movie teaches kids about real time events that they probably would've never even heard about otherwise. It also has catchy music(: don't rent, BUY!

- Great movie!3 star

Thank you so much for getting it so we can buy newsies! I was so happy that we can buy it now!

- Perfect5 star

It is as perfect as the men in it. I admire all lessons in it

- Glad it's finally available to buy on HD, but…3 star

… in the meantime I'd bought the Blu-ray. For the Blu-ray, marketed as the 25th Anniversary special, the movie was restored and enhanced, making the colors brighter, more realistic. I was hoping that this would be the transfer used for the HD download, but it isn't. It's still the same one from all along. It's fine, and I love the convenience of being able to stream and download it from iCloud, but I wish Disney had released the 25th Anniversary "restored" transfer instead.

- Best Movie ever.5 star

Amazing movie I love it so much. Unlike high school musical the songs are short and realistic. LOVE THIS MOVIE! I do wish that it wasn't as expensive as it is, I mean really, $18? Really?

- Best friend loves it5 star

It is the best

- WOO! WOO!5 star

Yaaay!!!! I love newsies sooo much and I'm soooo glad we can finally buy it!!!! My only upset is $18? Really?

- Let Us Buy It!!5 star

I really love this movie. It's amazing and I would like to buy it instead of renting it. Like honestly, is there any way I could actually purchase it?

- I'm a Fansie!!!!!5 star

You know that there is the album for the movie and Broadway musical that you can buy on iTunes. Both are great, but I like the new one a little bit better.

Hum-Drum - unbelievable!5 star


crystalsinger27 - Newsies!!5 star

I love this movie!!!!!! My sister, niece and I have watched it so many times, that we will randomly start singing songs from it. We know a good bit of the dialogue, too. The problem with a lot of movie critics is that they have practically no imagination (if they have any at all). I generally do not listen to movie critics, because all they do is pick apart whatever movie they are reviewing. I do not watch movies to dissect and figure out what the writer was trying to say. I watch movies for entertainment purposes only. The reviewers of this movie obviously did not know what they were talking about. They are probably people who don't like musicals anyway. Or, maybe they don't like kids. Whatever the case, they gave "rotten" reviews!! My advice is to not pay any attention to those movie critics. If a movie looks interesting, go check it out yourself. Anyway, that's my opinion. Happy viewing!!

aggiegirl2006 - LOVE IT!!!5 star

One of my favs of all time!! Glad to see it on here but wish I could buy it, not rent it. :( I have been looking to buy it for forever and couldn't find it. Hopefully all of our comments to make this available to buy are heard and soon we will be able to get it here.

hona5 - Great Movie5 star

Rotten tomatoes has it WRONG. This is a great movie. Emotional, true story not often heard. Great cast and a softer side of Christian not many see today. This was the movie I first saw him in and I was hooked. There's a good message in this movie and the choreographing was great. It's a underestimated movie. And if it's so bad the. Why was it made into a broadway show?

[email protected] - Great Movie :D5 star

This movie was really really good. I saw it during my drama class. But I had to wait a weekend to see the ending I was going bananas. I really wanted/needed to see the end. And we also saw how the actors and actress work. And a lot of them were good looking. I just want to watch this movie over and over again. I want to buy it but I don't know where to get it ;(. It was such a great movie :D.

xNikkixlovesxux - Finally a movie to relate to5 star

My name is John and I'm a former newsie so to speak. My father and my uncle had news stands in manhattan most of my life as a child. My fathers was on 42nd st and 6th ave, my uncles was on 42nd at and Madison ave. back in 1970 when I was 11 years old, I used to go to the city with my dad and he would give me an apron, a hand truck, a milk crate and a bundle of N Y Post which I would go to the entrance of Grand Central station and sell my papers from off the milk crate. This movie is awesome. I can't wait to see the play at the nederlander theatre in April.
