Just a Good Laugh!
23 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love this movie simply because it's a good laugh. The acting is terrible, the plot is cheesy, but I love it all the same. You watch this movie, and you're going to think it's the worst excuse for a singing group promoting itself ever. And you'll be right. It is bad. But that's what makes it so great! It's a cheesy movie full of cheesy jokes. It's not supposed to be an academy award winner. It should be the first of the genre "Cheesy for the sake of being Cheesy". I mean, if Meatloaf voluntarily in this movie, we all know that it's not to be taken seriously. Mr. "Bat-Out-Of-Hell" himself wouldn't be in one of these movies to try and earn his acting credibility. Love this movie for what it is. A cheesy good laugh to watch if you're depressed.
