While it is indeed true that FDR was wheelchair-bound by polio, he had perfected his ability to walk with the support of someone else's arm and could stand upright for a long period of time. He never appeared in public in a wheelchair, and in fact it was not even known outside his circle of associates that he was wheelchair-bound until after his death. See more »

Best Musical..uh, Comedy...um,Satire...ALL.! - I've Seen in Years!
15 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm SO used to being disappointed by underwritten roles, songs, plot & dialogue, phoned-in performances, etc., in most of what I see in films and T.V. lately... but THIS is SUBLIME! Though it's hilarious and campy, the lyrics are witty and demand intelligence, and the music's terrific, as is every single performance. But there just isn't any actor or aspect of the show to single out as brilliant; every moment of Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical is no less than perfect! My husband, my friends and I haven't been able to stop watching it (it was on Showtime On Demand 'til Saturday), nor can we get the songs out of our heads.... Surely Showtime is going to rerun this on DVD, and (PLEASE!) release it on DVD A.S.A.P. Do yourself a favor and catch it.(And no, I'm in no way affiliated... just a film "buff"!)
