So is this movie worth watching?
Good question. In many was, the music is superior to RHPS, but the plot is even more slipshod, without any of the outright dirtiness of RHPS. But the satire is surprisingly sharp, and Richard, Pat (who I've always found sexy), Charles, and Nell (who I've always found VERY sexy), are back. Rik Mayall shows up, as well. Ryan makes a decent Brad, and I've always had a crush on Valerie, tho she's one of those women who looks better with clothes on. In the end, DEFINITELY get the soundtrack!
D'oh, I *MEANT* Jessica! I'm not the first to make that mistake!
Oh, and Dame Edna's in it.
The guy who plays Dame Edna, not Dame Edna, but it would be more fun if it was.
Seriously this was the worst thing ever made in 1985, but in 2009 it's goddamned genius. As Richard O'Brien says, "My works manage to make millions but only after they can no longer make me money."
As an old RHPS fanboy I was most jarred by the new Janet's handsome man-voice.
Jessica Harper earns 5 stars no matter what.
You can't. You just can't.
