A classic movie, and great soundtrack.
Original, but not as fun as its cult following suggest it to be. The over-the-top approach to everything from overstaged dance and song acts to car crash demolition orgies starts getting tiresome towards the end of its long running time. I like what they are trying to do, though, and there are some good laughs scattered around.
Way, way too long. But funny, great musical numbers, great stunts, and good performances, so ends up being kinda endearing despite it's bloat.
