Has anyone seen this. It is really good. Or really bad. I don't know. I enjoyed it.

I actually went through a mini obsession of it when I was 15. :lol: Now I think it's one of those that's not that good, but still amusing. And I still listen to most of the soundtrack (and some of the original album. :lol: ).

I saw it last night for the first time. I've been listening to the soundtrack all day. You're right, it's not that great but it's so addictive and some of the songs would be really good if they were a bit longer. Zydrate anatomy and Let the Monster Rise are amazing though. It has a strong enough storyline to carry it. Was it a stage show before?

And of course, the obligatory parody.

(The internet ate my post. Hm.).
It was a stage show; a quick look up in YouTube for Chase the Morning Repo Lateefah Devoe should bring up some clips, actually. :D

Hehe, I really enjoyed the movie. I knew about the stage version but have never seen it. In any case, though, I'm a bit of a "Repo" devotée; I know it's far from the best musical film out there, but I do think it did a lot of things quite well and was very innovative, and I like many of the songs in it. :mrgreen:
