Anarchic scratch-your-head WTF musical, with one of the best dance (Lindy Hop) sequences ever filmed (!), incredible inventiveness and nonstop series of gags that sometimes misfire (but who cares when they are tossed off like so much confetti!) but when they do catch fire, make one hell of a blaze!
A delicious travesty of Hollywood and musicals, the mischievous, batshit insane cousin of Un Chien Andalou (1929) that only cares about sticking its tongue out at the viewer and violent slapstick, and the father of Airplane! and Blazing Saddles, which takes the piss out of cinema and yet manages to be a tribute to it as a life affirming art.
