Great film - still makes me laugh and sing along!! Will use some of it for school reflections and I'm sure the kids will get a kick out of some of the antics.

You have to be able to remember the 70s to truly love this trip back...today's veiwers may have lost too much of their innocence to accept the simplicity and joy of this clever retelling of the gospel according to Matthew. This is not only a parable in itself, but also a great "period" piece for those who long to go back in time a couple of hours. It made me smile, think and remember.

The movie is so creative in how the director used ( at the time), life around them to incorporate it into a more modern telling of Jesus, and his disciples journey through his teachings and agonizing death! But, the interpretation of Joy in the resurrection and our freedom from death through song( day by day) just inspiring!
A must see, as well as Jesus Christ Superstar, with Ted Neeley!

I have looked for a decent copy of this musical/movie for awhile and was glad to find that this is a good copy of the show and fulfilled all of my expectations

My absolute favorite telling of the Bible. It is timely and fun. I know and sing along with all the songs.

Someone said that this musical is horrible and if you wanted to see a Bible-based retelling of the Gospels to see Jesus Christ Superstar or !Hero. First of all, Jesus Christ Superstar is not Biblical and denies the diety of Christ (the writers aren't even Christians). !Hero is a well-intentioned try, but it's not the Bible, its paralellism (like sandwiches out of a backpack instead of bread and fish for feeding the 5000). Godspell, while at first seeming entirely bizarre and maybe even mocking, once you take a good look at it, you can see that they are really presenting the teachings of Jesus (whereas Superstar only presented the 'drama' of the story) in a fun and creative way that doesn't take away from the message. The songs are great too, although they may need some time to grow on you (because it is very very 70's).
One thing to keep in mind is that this movie is told in presentational form, where the audience is acknowledged and talked to. The actors in the movie are playing *actors*. The movie is meant to be understood that the people in the movie are *actors* acting out the stories. Once you get this, it's a very entertaining movie with great songs, dancing, and creative ways of modernizing some aspects of the Gospel without completely changing the message. I suggest getting it if you enjoy musicals in general, or if you're looking for a good alternative to Jesus Christ Superstar.

Format: DVD
The only reason I hesitate to give this a lower rating is I revel in how incredibly trite this film truly is. The true value of this film is New York City. In fact, after about the first few minutes you'll find yourself blocking out the gregarious costumes and horrid choreography and staring at the backdrop of Skyscrapers, parks and other wonderful landmarks and locales. From silly sing-a-longs to a sad, trumped-up garbage beast (ooh, the depth... the meaning...) this film serves as a wonderful slice of American pop culture as long as that culture is middle class and painfully white. I'm sure we've all remembered bits of the songs here and there as little earworms that catch us in the line at the deli muttering under our breath "Day by Day" or other such nonsense as the clerk behind the counter stares on in confusion trying to make change; but besides the rather ridiculous time capsule it serves as now little else can be said about this valiant effort to bring Jesus and awkward, lanky movement together. Not quite as blasphemous as Jesus Christ Superstar, but almost there, this homogenized, ridiculously suburban-serving film and its messages of love and faith are nothing more than laughable today. As one reviewer put it nicely, "it's an acquired taste" much like lutefisk or drywall. The moral of the story is: Sing praise to Jesus, but don't let clowns pretending to be Jesus sing praise.
