Storyline

Alphie and Bibi, two sweet, naive youths from Moose Jaw, Canada, have come to America to compete in the 1994 Worldvision Song Festival. Although the pair have talent, they are beaten out by the underhanded tactics of the festival favorites, another duo with the backing of BIM: Boogalow International Music, and its leader, Mr. Boogalow. Though crestfallen by their loss, Bibi and Alphie are soon delighted to hear that Mr. Boogalow has taken an interest in their music and wants to sign them to his label. All is looking up for the two until they begin to discover the dark underside of the rock and roll world. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Composer George S. Clinton had heard Mary Hylan sing at a Christmas party in 1978, and she was hired as the singing voice of Bibi based on that performance. See more »

Goofs

Under the opening titles, there is a shot of a bank of flags that prominently includes one for the "ICC Berlin" (the actual filming location), not a likely location for the Worldvision 1994 if it takes place in the United States. See more »

Audaciously Wonderfully Bad!
15 November 2003 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

Probably made as a "please God, let what happened to ROCKY HORROR

happen to us!", project, THE APPLE is so audacious, so over the top, so

totally awful that it is simply wonderful. The songs are cheesy, the

acting horrendous, the costumes nightmarish, the concept bizarre etc.,

etc., but when all those negatives are put together, the result is a

positively guilty pleasure to top all guilty pleasures. Please, someone,

release a letterboxed DVD of this film so that all its rocky horrors

squeezed onto the small screen can be seen in all their garish terrible/wonderfulness.......
