Storyline

Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland are cloned in an experimental backyard musical. The starting point is a number of scenes from the days when both the adolescents romped through the family series and Busby Berkeley musicals. These are put in a new order and before our eyes run forwards and backwards in a gentle adagio. Andy Hardy, the all-American sunny boy of the 1930s and 1940s, returns as an Oedipally destroyed teen clone to be released from his suffering by Betsy's singing and kisses.

Awesome, Simply Awesome...

I saw this film in Art Cinema class, and I laughed my ass off. I can't really explain the sense of humor this film pulls off. It's just funny. My favorite part is when Andy kisses the girl, and his mother gets jealous. You just have to see it to believe it. Incredible!
