A gay musical...what's there not to like!?! Well, in this instance...practically everything.
Where to start with this one...writing, acting, songs and singing, each as bad as the other. Ventura Pons, a significant director, has gone off-piste with this one...and, landed tits up in the middle of an avalanche!
Let's start with the writing...it's as if Señor Pons wrote the script in Spanish and then let Google translate it into English, apart from there being only a thread of a story, some of the lines will have your jaw whacking the floor in incredulous disbelief! Now...when the writing is this bad, the acting suffers...boy, does it suffer! Gary Wilmot is - most definitely - not an actor whereas Siân Phillips is...whatever was she thinking!?! Did anyone actually read the script before they signed the contract?
The songs...well, they are all over the place...literally, just when you least expect it, they burst into song! It's all rather discombobulating...and not a happy note in any of them! Be happy? Grab the Prozac! Misery...absolute and abject misery.
Sometimes...when a film is so bad, it's funny. Nah, not this one...this is just plain old bad.
