A really funny movie
29 May 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I feel I should apologise for really liking this movie. I have seen it several times on TV, and finally bought the DVD. It has several laugh out loud moments, and of course, the story is corny and has a happy ending - nothing to apologise for there as far as I can tell. It was a vehicle for Dolly and Sly, and I thought he came out of it really well. Dolly was cute, and sang beautifully as ever, and still managed to breathe, although to be honest, no-one has a waist that small and lives. I really loved Dolly in the pre-plastic days when her face and her voice seemed natural and free. Sylvester was incredibly funny as the manic taxi driver turned singer, and his bod was pure pleasure! So...something for everyone in the eye candy department, some good music, laughs, happy ending - what's wrong with that? When you've seen a movie several times and it still makes you laugh out loud - Sly singing in the horrible suit - it's got something going for it. A feel good film.
