Big Bunch of FUN
5 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great music is the base, great people the body of this fine piece of work. The Cruise is an amazing experience and Mr Curlee and his team have done an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the best thing going. Get on the boat! Get out and see these talented musicians and hear this music that is surly "Too Good For The Radio". Buy this movie, have a showing party at your home, crank up the sound, dance, love your friends, be free. Life can be that good, just get on the boat.

This Delbert McClinto led gang loves what they do and we get to see the best at their finest.

Marcia Ball is a national treasure. I am spearheading an effort to have her likeness carved into Mount Rushmore. We'll have to sacrifice a Giant Redwood to serve as that leg "Her Tallness" bounces as she plays, but Hey, it'll grow back in a couple of thousand years and we'll still be looking up at all the joy on the Lido Deck.
