There have been some complaints on voices, but I tend to think that the story, as conveyed by the
actors, is at least as important and the cast did a phenomenal job of conveying the various pitches of tension and love.
From Doogie to Bobby has been quite a road for Mr. Harris to travel and he has done so with considerable grace and charm. Patti LuPone stopped the show, of course, when the ladies went to lunch. Not Getting Married was scary to behold. So yeah, try and see it.
Having seen so many of the films that this reflects I was astounded at the details. One of my
favorites was a shot of the truck rolling slowly along the road with Eric walking beside it. You could tell that they had gone to the trouble of putting him on one of the old treadmills. It was amazing!
Unfortunately you have to have a pretty high degree of familiarity with the science fiction films of the forties and fifties and the cheap affects which were all they had available back in those days to really appreciate how much effort has gone into making this parody. The puddles of brown goo were, in their own way, quite brilliant. The effort that went into producing authentic looking 50's set pieces has to be seen to be appreciated.
The one thing they did that I expect the directors of the 50's would have truly appreciated is the use of high saturation color. Everything tends to pop out of the screen at you. It's nearly 3D.
Don't miss this if you loved the oldies!
