Critic Reviews for Godspell
A lesson in how not to transfer a theatrical musical to the big screen.
The peppy no-name cast take to the parables like toddlers take to Sesame Street.
Calling this the "Sesame Street" version of the Gospel would be an insult to "Sesame Street."
Audience Reviews for Godspell
This movie walks a fine line between uplifting and annoying. For the most part I found it really annoying. Maybe I'll watch it again someday to give it another chance.
If it wasn't so obviously religious, I would suspect they were all on drugs. Shocking.
Cool idea, to have a hippy version of Jesus running around the streets and landmarks of New York City with his co-ed disciples, but everybody acts like complete idiots, most of the songs (except for "Day By Day") are dreadful, and they tell boring stories. It's pantomime throughout. There's not much drama or conflict. I tried watching several times, and always got bored.
