Great fun.
27 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

People who criticize this picture and its director are missing the point. The movie is the equivalent of a badly produced school play. And that's just the point, the parents who go to see a school play do not go for the acting, directing or any other professional artistic endeavor but for the pure enjoyment of seeing their loved ones on stage. Ed Woods was in love with the movies and no matter what people thought about him and his films he just got pure enjoyment out of making them; and that after all is what entertainment is all about.
