3 of the 4 decent songs are in the first 20 minutes, the other is Meatloaf's about half way thru. While I did not like it that much overall, the best part about having watched it is that I never have to watch it again

- I loved the live showings at the Strand Theater in SF, late 70's...waiting in line to get in was worth the price of admission by itself, SF in it's wildest glory! Saw it other places, suburbs and Midwest, hoping for less noise and distraction, but the audiences were just as noisy, and very amateurish...even more distracting!
- It's fantastic on a good home theater system, to really appreciate the dancing and singing of the whole cast, truly amazing!!!

Curious
Is there anyone who never saw the Live Audience in the theater showings, and "Not" enjoy the movie?
Or not see the midnite fan(tastic) fiasco of Fun, but did enjoy the dvd on its own??
😆😉👏😎

Please, do yourself a favor & do not watch this for the first time alone in your living room wearing normal clothes, without any unbuttered toast. Sad, sad, sad!
But if you are recapturing your squandered youth, even alone in your living room wearing normal clothes, I'm sure you will be doing The Time Warp Again...It's just a jump to the left...

If you didn't squander your youth, get thee to a late nite double feature picture show!

The whole thing doesn't make any sense, but it's enjoyable and catchy.

I think this movie is THE BEST! The music is fantastic and is fun to sing along with. If I were to give this a rating between 1 and 100, I would say 100. It's been one of my FAVORITE movies ever since I saw it. :D

Over-rated Glam Rock Musical from 1975 with one irritating character after another. Not one of the songs came even close to being memorable. I was totally bored.

At best, I could only give this 1970's, glam-rock mess-terpiece (which I thought was nothing but a big heap of nonsensical twaddle) a rating of just 2 measly stars.

I mean, here was an often-praised cult movie that really wasn't even half as good as what I've frequently heard people rave on and on about it.

I certainly found most of the characters in the story to be downright irritating. And, worse yet, most of the 18 songs were really quite forgettable, too.

If I were to describe this shrill, little production to you in just one word, I'd have to say that "embarrassment" pretty much sums up this nutty Sci-Fi/Musical in a nutshell.

In my opinion - This is the sort of movie that could only appeal to a very small and select audience (which I'm obviously not a part of).

Even though I purposely allowed for the fact that this demented Musical/Comedy is now 40 years old, that still didn't prevent me from giving it a below-average, 2-star rating.

If you ask me - On top of having way too many abrasive characters in its story (who were repeatedly being loud and annoying), this utterly wacky wonderland tale (with its 100-minute running time) also went on and on for far too long with so much of its nonsense that it quickly became pointless and tiresome.

I'm completely convinced that this "Rocky Horror" picture could only appeal to those who (back in the late-1970's) were still in their youth and were easily caught up in all of its silliness, while viewing it at some movie theatre's midnight showing.

This is definitely a movie meant strictly for die-hard nostalgics who are still able to forgive it (flaws and all), as they persistently hang on to their fond memories of viewing it from the good, old days of yesteryear.

(*Lyrics excerpt*) - "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch me! I wanna feel dirty!" (Watch video)

Hey, folks! - If you just happen to be in a sing-along, dance-along, haywire mood, then - Yes. Welcome to this 1970's transsexual, Transylvanian romp where archaic gay-camp (mixed generously with pure nonsense) is bound to tickle you pink.

So, come on down to the lab to see what's on the slab with Brad & Janet (and all the rest of this loony gang), where non-stop scenery-chewing and neurotic silliness prevails (like never before) in this decidedly dated, time warp production.

For all of the endless raves of positive reviews that this particular Sci-Fi/Musical/Comedy has garnered for itself over the past 40 years, I was certainly quite disappointed, indeed, to see just how unbelievably tame this one-note-joke-of-a-movie actually was, in the long run.

It was so tame, in fact, that absolutely no profanity, whatsoever, was ever uttered, at all, throughout its entire 100-minute running time.... Can you beat that?

Columbia: You're very fortunate to be invited up to Frank's laboratory. Some people would give their right arm for the priviledge.
Brad: People like you, maybe?
Columbia: HA! I've seen it!

Sexual Content: The whole concept of the movie is sexual. I don't recommend this for tweens, but early teens if they are mature and know about homosexuality.
