CGiii Comment

When the dribbling excesses of the 60s hit the big screen - this is what you get - a catastrophic piece of ego-driven trash.

Zappa, and it may be attributed to drugs, has no discernible talent for writing dialogue or direction.

He may have written the odd good song - the stress being on the odd.

The dippy-hippy trend has traveled less far than all the other trends..........all that tie-die dying out............bless.

And......the music is crap.

And......Ringo Starr - a talentless drummer and a talentless actor.

When watching this now.......do old hippies feel as if they may have been conned?
