The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again

Critics Consensus

Laverne Cox's fabulous portrayal of Frank N. Furter leads a strong ensemble effort, but the stars can't infuse this reimagining with enough energy, creativity, and quirk to make TRHPS: Let's Do the Time Warp Again a worthwhile endeavor.

Critic Reviews for The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (18)

  • A graduate of the High School Musical school of filmmaking (literally), Ortega is also the person responsible for many of the glaring problems here.

  • Director Kenny Ortega frames Rocky Horror as a movie at a midnight showing, complete with audience members shouting lines and holding up props. Instead of adding to the fun, this just feels sad.

    Oct 21, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Faithful, fast-paced, and largely entertaining, this new Rocky Horror Picture Show is neither the calamity fans like myself were fearing nor the triumph that we were all hoping for.

  • The Rocky Horror purists will (and should) certainly turn their noses up at this sanitized Hot Topic version.

    Oct 21, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • Watching the Fox version is a strange experience, because you feel that Ortega both understands this and betrays it, or that [HSM] and its ilk are such a part of his DNA that he doesn't know the difference between good and bad anymore.

  • It turns out you can't do the Time Warp again after all.

    I wish Adam Lambert had a larger part - he's the only part of the movie I liked.
