I don't think there's an official review thread yet, but there are a few comments scattered throughout this thread.
I missed the stage show, so I can't compare the two, but the movie is a lot of fun.
I enjoyed the movie. The soundtrack is great and many inspired one-liners. Incidentally, before the movie, a trailer for Monty Python's Holy Grail was shown - apparently a cleaned-up print will be released in theaters soon. Can't Wait!
I greatly enjoyed Hedwig this last Friday. It's a fun film. The music is great, and the story is very interesting. The animation really emphasized the story at hand. I want the DVD just to get the second "music video" "The Origin of Love". Recommended
Thanks for all your comments! I'll be seeing it tonight. I've heard that the movie's a little more linear and 'rockumentary'-type wheras the play was basically a performance of Hedwig's. I've got the movie soundtrack and it expands from what was in the show, and the production is awesome.
I wanna see this. It looks really good + the guy who plays Hedwig looks pretty fine from the pictures i've seen.
It's only playing at one arthouse theater til the 26th & worse i don't know where the theater is,lol since it's in Minneapolis MN,while i'm in St. Paul & not that familiar with the city. Wish it'd play in a few more theaters so i get a chance to see it!
GO SEE THIS MOVIE. I can honestly say it is the best movie I have seen this Summer. Great story, great music and even a message about finding your place in life.
I didnt see the Broadway play but I hear you only heard about the character of Tommy in the play. In the movie you see him and hes a nice site too.
Ive seen it twice already and plan to go back.
I wish Hollywood made more movies that were entertaining but that had a brain too.
