1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Katie on June 4 2004
Format: DVD
I notice that most people did not find the review from "moviesmusic" to be helpful, but in retrospect -- it was the most useful review there (had I only read it BEFORE purchasing this DVD). I love a good musical but I really found this one to be lame. Other than "Put on a Happy Face" and maybe "Kids" -- the songs were nothing special (or worse). I was amazed to see moviemusic's version of the Conrad Birdie song about being sincere because I too found that to be one of the most shockingly awful parts of the movie -- and "moviemusic" reviewer is not lying about the lyrics!
It's not the worst movie I ever saw and obviously some people like it but there are so many far better musicals out there and I found this one to be bad enough that I consider it a waste of money and time. I admit that I think my 4-year old girl might like it -- but she would probably like anything with music and colors -- however lame. My 13-year old son enjoyed watching the "I'm sincere" song with me and we (along with my husband) had a good laugh about how AWFUL it was! So, in that respect, the movie delivered some laughs.
If you love Ann-Margret I say get "Viva Las Vegas" instead and don't watch an "Elvis-like" character -- watch the real thing. The energy between Margret and Presley and their dance numbers in that movie are great -- and while that movie is a little corny too, I thoroughly enjoyed it (unlike Bye Bye Birdie).

Format: DVD
Although the movie has its moments, it pales in comparison to the television version starring Jason Alexander and Vanessa Williams (a version that was, at one time, avaialable on VHS). The problem with the Ann-Margret version is that the movie is a vehicle for Ann-Margret; unfortunately, the original story gets lost in the process. The television movie also features several new and outstanding tunes; both should be available on DVD!

Bye Bye Birdie had an interesting journey from stage to screen. The show itself hearkens back to a much simpler time and with its abundance of teenager's roles, it is often revised by high schools and community theater groups. The film reaches a larger audience in a much shorter time and is pleasant entertainment, but it lacks the integrity of the stage show.
First the bad news, The film suffers from flat characterization. Most affected is the role of Rosie who is often seen as despicable. All the viewer knows of her is she often flirts to make Albert jealous (even going as far as stripping for a group of shriners. Oh sure, she 'tells' us about the other, nicer side of her personality but we never see it. Similarly, Albert is so obsessed with his mother; we cannot see what Rosie sees in him. When Rosie and Albert finally get back together at the film's end it is because the "Birdie" distraction is over, not because either character had shown any growth. Conrad Birdie is so un-charismatic and untalented that it leads me to have poor thoughts about the time period... Was Elvis ever that boring?
On the positive side, even in a very small role, Bobby Rydell honestly and pleasantly plays the young Hugo. But it is Ann-Margret who easily walks away with the film. She is easily the most charismatic person in the film and gorgeous to look at.
Some of the choreography is very good, even taking into account the non-dancers with big dance numbers. The show went through some serious revisions. Many songs were excised. The song "An English Teacher" went away when Albert's profession was switched to chemistry. The song "A Healthy American Boy" was also excised. The song "What Did I Ever See in Him?" was cut and that is a shame. It continued the relationship set up during the song "One Boy".

I never get tired of the "Got a Lot of Living to Do" number, absolutely the most complex and dynamic dance number I have ever seen - anywhere, full of amazing energy & surprises. It just goes on & on. This is one hell of a fun musical. Everyone's terrific in it, especially Paul Lynde singing "Kids". Ann-Margret looks delicious and dances sensationally. Definitely her best work.

Ann-Margret shines in this adapted stage to screen version. She has a great voice, beautiful body and a damn good actress. I also saw her live years ago at Radio City Music Hall and she brought the house down....but i digress.Paul Lynde as Kim's father is priceless and it is so wonderful to have his performance perserved on film for all times. His wonderful sense of humor is one of a kind and he brings the fathers character to a new height.Dick Van Dyke and Janet Lee are as consistantly wonderful as always with their humor and singing ability.I found the sound to be excellent in 5.1 filling my living room with beautfiul sound from this musical comedy.You will not be disappointed if you buy this. It's a fun time..
