jukebox musical
 n.— «Another jukebox musical—revive someone else’s plot (in this case Shakespeare’s Tempest and a forgotten MGM sci-fi movie of the 1950s), punctuate it with feel-good songs from the 1960s, and disguise the thin idea.» —“Enthusiasm Can’t Save This Musical” by D. Partridge Courier-Mail (Australia) Feb. 1, 1993. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
