Fun things about this film:
1) surreal/brightly colored sets and costumes
2) probably unintentional gay subtext everywhere: only one woman in the entire film, a dungeon full of men, muscular un-shirted elevator operators with hoods over their heads, really gay costumes on Dr. T.
3) it's a musical!
4) Dr. T's musical number "Dress me" is obviously the lyrical and visual inspiration for Mr. Burns' "See my vest" song from the Simpsons.
5) Movie contains no awful Canadians (ie Mike Myers, Jim Carrey) hamming it up polluting the memory of Ted Geisel's work.
6) Probably influenced my favorite cult film, The Forbidden Zone (at least the sets, if not plot points).
1) pacing's a little slow at times
2) DVD isn't widescreen and has no extra features to speak of.
PS: I didn't get this one from Netflix, though it occurs to me we've been getting a lot of G rated stuff lately (Pinnoccho, Castle in the Sky, Finding Nemo) from them. I think I should have rented these in some other order to screw with Netflix's recommendations: ie "Members who rented 'Pinocchio' also rented 'Showgirls' and 'Last house on the Left'".
