Putting It Together is a 2010 musical film directed by Don Roy King and starring Carol Burnett, George Hearn, John Barrowman, Ruthie Henshall, and Bronson Pinchot. Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, the movie follows the lives of five individuals who attend a cocktail party hosted by a nameless narrator. The narrator, played by Burnett, serves as the central character who links the stories of the other characters together. Throughout the course of the evening, the characters interact with one another, revealing their desires, aspirations, and fears through a series of musical numbers.

The film's opening number, "Invocation and Instructions to the Audience," sets the tone for the rest of the musical, as Burnett welcomes the audience and encourages them to enjoy the show. From there, the characters are introduced, each with their own unique perspective on life and love.

George Hearn plays the wealthy businessman, who finds his marriage falling apart due to his infidelity. Ruthie Henshall plays his wife, a former actress who struggles to come to terms with her husband's betrayal. John Barrowman plays a young writer who dreams of success in Hollywood but finds himself stuck in a dead-end job as a waiter. Bronson Pinchot plays the narrator's loyal servant, who joins in on the fun with a hilarious rendition of "Buddy's Blues."

As the evening progresses, the characters take turns singing about their experiences with love and relationships. Henshall's rendition of "Country House" is particularly poignant, as she sings about the crumbling of her marriage. In contrast, Barrowman's performance of "Let's Do It" is upbeat and fun, showcasing his character's determination to succeed.

Through its use of music and dance, Putting It Together expertly captures the ups and downs of life, love, and everything in between. The film's set design is also visually stunning, with each musical number taking place in a different setting. From the grand ballroom to the intimate bedroom, the film's locations add depth and meaning to each song.

Overall, Putting It Together is a charming and entertaining movie that showcases the talents of some of Broadway's brightest stars. With its catchy tunes, relatable characters, and heartwarming message, it's a musical that's sure to delight audiences of all ages.
