Very well.

A song from a Broadway musical. The lyrics were written for the show, but the music is classical in origin.

How about Strangers in Paradise (from Kismet) music (Polovtsian Dances) "borrowed" from Russian (further east) composer Alexander Borodin ?

Is it a stand alone, one-of-a-kind movie, as opposed to being part of a series?

Stand alone not series. It has a few very funny moments but it is mostly action with a bit of love interest.

Some. Space travel is not a big deal in this scenario - it is just like flying a taxi.

There are aliens but not on their own planets. There is a hotel, where much of the action takes place, orbiting another planet.
