I bought the DVD from Amazon thinking it would be a waste of money but curious. The songs are so catchy and clever though and the characters so surprising and funny that I think this is a future Hedwig or Rocky Horror.
It is amazing. It made me laugh. It shocked me. I'm still humming the tunes and playing the music soundtrack CD.
Bet you this becomes a massive cult hit.
But the best part is the songs. Whilst I think students and the young will be delighted by the courage and daring behind this film, mocking many Establishment sacred cows, the older will remember the 4 or 5 big hits (in the UK anyway) and will like some of the new songs. What's A Girl To Do? is a personal favourite - the girl singing it has a great voice and the words are brilliant.
In October 2009 I showed it to another friend who thinks it is absolutely superb and should be as successful a cult classic as Paranormal Activity or Colin. I have had numerous similar reactions. This film needs picking up and showing on a big screen.
