Storyline

A truly mad concoction, blending 1950s juvenile delinquents, sci-fi melodrama, song-and-dance, and a touch of horror, everything in just the right combination to create an engaging big screen spectacle! This curious and curiously entertaining story involves one Jonathan Xavier and his devoted misfit gang who, incidentally, have been exiled to Earth from the far reaches of outer space. Johnny's former girlfriend Bliss has left him and stolen his Resurrection Suit, a cosmic, mind-bending uniform that gives the owner power over others. Along the way, there will be several highly stylized musical numbers, lots of genuinely humorous dialogue, and a wacky plot-twist or two, all beautifully captured on the very last of Kodak's black-and-white Plus-X film stock. Written by Anthony Craig Gilbert

Dis-Enchanted Queens will love this flop!
9 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is plain "Horrible". I have never seen such a bunch of flamboyant, Pansy acting grown men flopping around the big screen as I did here. The storyline made NO sense, the characters sang about just "anything" whimsical and the acting was exaggerated. TO AN EXTREME.

Watching this movie reminded me of a director trying TOO hard to bring back a silly, immature time of his youth with no sensibility and an irresponsible approach at cinema of the past.

Lets take a look at the casting!! It's like he got them from a list of his top 10 favorite movies when he was a kid, negligent at the fact whether they fit the role properly or not. S T U P I D .

Is a movie that was filmed in Black & White supposedly an art sensation? Think again. This Car crash of a flick ( and supposed worst investment laugh riot within the industry) rivals Plan 9 from outer space.

It should be categorized as a "Disaster movie" instead of a musical for OBVIOUS REASONS!
