I've quite simply seen nothing like this before. It's execution in syringing pop ballads into its subject matter remains disjointed. However this only adds to the absurd tone, of what I do not consider to be a musical, but a surreal celebration of human nature captured in film.
It had its OK moments and it had its great moments - there were times when Turturro's witty irony cracked me up, and others where it shot off into pure silliness. But if anything, I enjoyed the experience.
