  • Depressing tripe

    Don't expect a grain of glee from this dingy movie .. Please avoid . Watch the original tv series which was a chucklefest in comparison . Gene Anthony Ray v'shalom.

    Enjoyable bit of nostalgia, however too many four-letter words for a 'PG' film
  • Nearly fantastic

    You should definitely buy this movie, it's got great songs, drama, laughs and even the odd awkward moment; but, this all comes to a very abrupt end, it just finishes. I felt like it needed another half hour to finish it properly! However, this is not an even qualifiable set back- it is still must see film.

    As the title suggestes I cant put into words my thoughts for this film. I dont no why I waited 29 years to watch this film! The soundtrack is amazing too. This film might by 29 years old, and yes you can tell from the quality of the picture, but the performances and production are as good as if it were made today. Well worth it, and well worth being at 99p, thank you iTunes.
