I have a confession to make. I think this movie rules.
I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. But, you know what, that's my opinion and I don't think I should have to feel ashamed of it so there!

It's best to watch it withought the vaguest idea of what it's about, but I will say this:
This is exactly what "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" would have looked like if Willy quit the candy business and decided to turn the factory into a disco.
