I can only assume that thepathetically sad reviews stating tha this film is awful come from people with no sense of humour and a distinct lack of joy in their lives.
The music is brilliant, the dancing even better. There are some pretty fine acors lending their hand to this film, including quite a few cameos from the original John Water's version. I rarely if ever like remakes, Im of the 'if it aint broke dont fix it' school of thought, but this is one of the excpetions.
ll in all a great film, lots of laughs and, ok it didnt win any oscars, but it's just a great feelgood film. My teenage sons love it, which is quite an achievement as no-one is murdered and it isn't one of the Saw/Hostel/Zombie films they love so much.
Just buy it and see for yourself.
