    One of the most OVERRATED movies I have ever seen.

      All told, I wish that I could see a remake of this movie.

      The movie itself is nothing special, but it hit a cult nerve like no other film has. Like it or hate it, you can’t deny what it became.

      Personally I’d love to see this concert. And there is a remake. MTV is doing it. Maybe they will get The Situation to star as Brad…. *vomit*

      I take it you’ve never watched it with a live audience have you? I know, the movie sucks, but that’s not the fun of it. Go watch it in Halloween at a theatre full of people doing weird stuff, talking back at the screen and singing along and you’ll see why it has become what it has become.
