Trivia

The title of the stage show is "The Rocky Horror Show", not "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". See more »

Goofs

At the start of the film we see the projectionist start a single 35mm projector loaded with a single 1000 ft reel. This would only provide about 20 minutes of the film at most and nowhere near enough footage for the whole movie. See more »

Alternate Versions

In December 2016, an "extended cut" was released on DVD that includes Brad's song "Once in a While" (which was shot for, and cut from, both the broadcast TV and 1975 versions) and the complete end credits, which features Adam Lambert's and Ivy Levan's bright red lips singing an extended reprise of "Science Fiction, Double Feature." Commercial break fade-outs were replaced by wipes and seamless edits. See more »

If you enjoyed the original---You should probably just go watch that instead
20 October 2016 | by walruseggSee all my reviews

If the original "Rocky Horror Picture Show" is so bad it's good, the "Let's Do the Time Warp Again" is so good it's bad,"Good" in the sense that it is far too polished and glamorized to even come close to capturing what made the original so enjoyable. There was no sense of grit or earnestness when it came to the singing or the acting. As strange and incoherent as the plot in the original RHPS, the cast made you feel for each character and connect with them. In the new one, sure, the actors are talented but everything comes across as too neatly put together, and maybe it was the commercial breaks but there hardly seemed to be any real chemistry built up between the actors.

I don't know that anyone wanted a new RHPS in the first place. BUT, I think there was a chance that if this project were in different hands it could have been something uniquely its own. Instead, all of the edge is removed and I don't think there would be any reason to watch this over the other, beyond sheer curiosity.
