Classic modern day comedy for any family member over 18
24 April 2012 | by rachelhoman007See all my reviews

Frankie Go Boom is a movie that made us laugh until we had tears in our eyes. Go see the movie before your friends tell you the surprise twists in plots or you see too much on internet. A real treat for any film buff. Reminded me of a Cappraesque modern day appeal of Cary Grant romantic comedy mixed with the surprise morals of Rocky Horror Picture Show, of our current day perspectives on sex and the use of the internet and how everyone's personal experiences are exposed via the internet. A true modern day sex comedy for ages 18 to 60 to appreciate over and over again. whether you have a brother like Bruce or not you can relate and identify with each and every character.Any open-minded film buff would appreciate the genuine clever humor this movie portrays. One of my new to 10 movies. Have seen it 3 times and each time was better than before.
