Sometimes it seemed some movie mavens defined a "real" musical as something inherently unlikable. If we like it, it isn't a real musical -- instead it's some other genre that just happened to have music.

I believe Minnelli kept the episodic nature of the story line on purpose (roughly, an episode for each season), and those who had read the stories before seeing the movie (a whole lot of people) probably preferred it that way.
