fresh!
22 April 2011 | by simonwidmerSee all my reviews

"Fight for you right revisited" is a tongue-in-cheek look on the Beastie Boys' beginning. The story starts at the end of the '86 "Fight for your right" video, where they destroyed an apartment during a party and ends in a dance battle against a future version of themselves.

Of course, the whole thing is silly as hell but hey, what did you expect? There are numerous cameos including Susan Sarandon, Steve Buscemi and a few uncredited ones (are you able to spot Orlando Bloom)? Even the real Beastie Boys make an appearance.

To me this movie shows that the Beastie Boys are not afraid to showing where they come from (on a sidenote: They haven't played their biggest hit "fight for your right to party" since the 90s). They show us how silly they were back then. Congrats to them for inviting us to laugh with them!
