I love Love LOVED it!!!!!
30 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is campy, irreverent, and just a downright hoot. I have been searching for a copy of this movie for YEARS! I remember it clearly. It came to a local theatre and I called in sick to school and work to go see it. I loved it so much I went to see it as often as I could till it left town. I bought the album, (with two great talents like Harry and Ringo what's not to love?!) It had an iron on inside that was spread open bat wings and in Gothic lettering in the middle of the wings was "BITE IT". Oh man I got 2 t-shirts out of that one transfer and wore them till they fell apart!!!! I would buy this movie in a heartbeat if I could find it and watch it every weekend! If you like Monty Python, Hedwig, Rocky Horror, The Addams Family.... this is right up your alley. Did you like Popeye with Robin Williams? If not, this isn't going to be to your liking I am pretty sure. Same type of humor. Subtle and offbeat, if that is you then see this movie. I don't think you will regret it. I never have.
