An impressive epic from the gold old days when film didn't just go big -- they went gigantic. What is even more impressive is that many of its messages are as relevant today as they were back then. This film is definitely worth seeing.
The only thing that makes this film watchable is the constant stream of funny lines. Otherwise, the script is weak and disconnected, the cinematography and lighting are dreadful, the acting is (for the most part) amateurish, and the music is uninteresting.
I don't understand why this movie was made. It's a grotesque orgy of excess, depravity, and hyperactivity crying out for a heavy dose of Ritalin. I guess it's made well if that's what you're looking for or coming down from an intense, teenage sugar high. Otherwise, it's just insane.
