    In my 1000th rewatch of this the best movie in the world I caught myself feeling contemplative; I pictured myself showing this to my future children. Would they understand the references to McCarthyism? Who would they appreciate more, the genius improvisations of Madeleine Kahn or the devilish wit of Tim Curry?

It makes me want to read the book and watch A Woman Under the Influence. I think I’ll do both.

    This is what I want from new movies. Exactly this. Make 100 more of these.

    It's ok for dark, artistic movies to be fun. They don't all have to be a slog.

    Fun and fluffy! I didn't go in expecting the teeth of the original. I will say characters are not half as interesting, but then it's impossible to match Fairuza Balk.
