No clue what the purpose of this disaster was supposed to be. At the least, I found it annoying. I cannot imagine anyone paying to see this, to buy this or even rent it. If you hate the old Andy Hardy movies, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland you might find something entertaining in it.

Not much left to say except please don't encourage this type of experimental film making. The soundtrack alone will make you queasy.
