Storyline

Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland are cloned in an experimental backyard musical. The starting point is a number of scenes from the days when both the adolescents romped through the family series and Busby Berkeley musicals. These are put in a new order and before our eyes run forwards and backwards in a gentle adagio. Andy Hardy, the all-American sunny boy of the 1930s and 1940s, returns as an Oedipally destroyed teen clone to be released from his suffering by Betsy's singing and kisses.

Awful
21 January 2008 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

No clue what the purpose of this disaster was supposed to be. At the least, I found it annoying. I cannot imagine anyone paying to see this, to buy this or even rent it. If you hate the old Andy Hardy movies, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland you might find something entertaining in it. I think it is back to the drawing board for whoever wasted their time making this film. Perhaps they can find some other icons to mutilate? In order to fulfill the required minimum I must continue to write here although the other comments seem much shorter. Not much left to say except please don't encourage this type of experimental film making. The soundtrack alone will make you queasy.
