Mother Goose Rock N Rhyme [Import]
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
Mother Goose is missing from Rhymeland and it's up to Little Bo Peep and Mother Goose's son, Gordon, to find her. What is Rhymeland? It's the land of nursery rhymes created by Mother Goose. Problem is, if Mother Goose isn't around to keep the nursery rhymes alive, Rhymeland and its inhabitants will simply disappear. In this colorful, somewhat demented place, rock stars masquerade as Mother Goose characters and provide a whole new, if somewhat strange, perspective on classic rhymes. Little Bo Beep (Shelley Duvall) is first on the scene, seeking out Mother Goose (Jean Stapleton) to help her find her missing sheep. She and Gordon (Dan Gilroy) initiate a search that takes them on a tour of famous Mother Goose characters. Among others, Ben Vereen plays an amusing and incredibly flexible Itsy Bitsy Spider, Howie Mandel a punning Humpty Dumpty, Bobby Brown a fancy-footed member of the dancing Three Blind Mice, and ZZ Top the silent but ever helpful Three Men in a Tub. The search for Mother Goose follows a crooked road full of dead ends and full circles, eventually leading to the frightening "real world." Don't you wonder who the culprit will turn out to be? In spite of the title, there are only a few real rock performances in this 95-minute video--it's primarily outrageous character skits performed by famous rock stars with some fairly unremarkable rock music in the background. Because of the somewhat twisted, tongue-in-cheek take on classic Mother Goose tales, this video is best suited for adults and children 9 and older. --Tami Horiuchi

You just gotta see her awesome performance!
It's quite unbelievable how such great singer and songwriter can also be a simply terrific actor.
You probably saw Cyndi Lauper in "Vibes" and "Off & Running". If you enjoyed any of these movies, then you know how great Cyndi Lauper is.
It's not necessary to be a kid to like "Mother Goose Rock 'n' Rhyme". Anyone who considers himself/herself a rock/pop music fan must see this title.
