    A classic movie, and great soundtrack. 8 years 1 month ago

    Original, but not as fun as its cult following suggest it to be. The over-the-top approach to everything from overstaged dance and song acts to car crash demolition orgies starts getting tiresome towards the end of its long running time. I like what they are trying to do, though, and there are some good laughs scattered around. 8 years 1 month ago

    Way, way too long. But funny, great musical numbers, great stunts, and good performances, so ends up being kinda endearing despite it's bloat. 8 years 10 months ago
