Save your money and wait for this to come out on VHS and Betamax. It was not as funny as the commercials depict but I am glad I saw it.
Alice Cooper is the ugliest woman alive.

The costumes were fabulous.

I had started to watch the old TV show off Netflix but quit after about 20 episodes. It was just far too slow and, frankly, boring.

I didn't watch the old TV show but did at least Wiki it before going to see the film. I'm not sure if fans of the series will like the film, but I enjoyed it. It was not the comedy the trailer made it out to be (not sure whose fault that was) but after the google-ing the series I expected it to get darker. I think it actually does that fairly well, it has some nice humorous bits but starts to get darker towards the middle and end. It was a fun film that I enjoyed and while I probably wouldn't see it again in theaters it is at least in the running for owning one day.

Not a bad movie at all, not worth seeing in the theaters but worth the rental.
