To compare Back in Business with a modern day Film is like saying that a child's homemade go-cart and a Ferrari are comparable as they both have wheels and are capable of independent movement. Back In Business is not a conventional film, per se. It's a product of old cinema which was more about outrageous exhibition as about story telling - It's a Mad (5) World, What's New Pussycat, Barbarella. They're big, flabby, self-indulgent, glorious messes that stand as social commentary as much as cinema.
The in-jokes, the winking references, the cameos - all are used to great effect in Back In Business. Great music, great costumes, some good sets, wall of sound - all make Back In Business a little piece of 60s film-making for the modern day. Please don't watch it if you want to watch a competent and engaging movie - but do watch it if you want 90 mins of nostalgia and silliness and stupid enjoyment Then Enjoy This Film
