Look at Xanadu with an eye toward storytelling superiority and your head will explode. To appreciate the madness within, one must take in the blinding neon sights with an open heart and at least one nostril-coating line of cocaine.

While the movie is every bit as garish and overly shellacked as the other bomb musicals of its era, at least this one looks like irresponsible amounts of money were thrown around.

Semi-Gloss Newton-John, Gene Kelly fantasy musical is dated, but kind of fun.

There's never been a movie quite like this, and there never will be again. And that may not be a bad thing.
