A gangster movie where all the gangsters are played by children. Instead of real bullets they use "splurge guns" that cover the victim in cream. The story tells of the rise of "Bugsy Malone" and the battle for power between "Fat Sam" and "Dandy Dan". Written by

Although it performed well in England and Japan, Paramount only gave "Bugsy Malone" a limited release in US theaters, usually dumping it onto second-feature screens partnered with a late-'76 re-release of The Bad News Bears (1976). See more »

Someone once said, "If it was raining brains, Roxy Robinson wouldn't even get wet."

Ive always liked this one, it gives kids a chance to experience "playing soldiers" if they cant do so, due to their position in life or otherwise. Besides the fact that when i first viewed this film, RENTED at 8 yrs old, I was somewhat like this. But thats a different story. The cast is excellent, music, acting, dialogue, its all very good and true. I loved this film, eventhough I love all films, I suggest you see it whenever you can. It has meaning, and is playful in many ways. Thank you.
