Review by anonymous (posted on 22-Jul-2005)

It is hard to rate this movie. A hardcore Zappa fan would give it 4 starts while someone who is not would probably hate it. A fan of low budget art films and abstract non linear art/comedy would give it 4 stars while someone who likes regular movies would hate it. It is without a doubt the weirdest musical ever made. If you like all types of music; and want to see something really, really weird. Get this.
