Ever since I was about 7 or 8 I would watch this movie at least once a month. I am 15 now, and it's as good as always. This is a movie you can NEVER get sick of! The first time I watched it, I only recognized Shelley Duvall (who I hated) and Little Richard, but then when we bought the movie I realized it had so many wonderful musicians. This movie is great for children because it puts a colorful twist to the classic rhymes and brings them together so nicely. Adults and older children will love the little details in the movie, such as Brian Setzer and the Stray Cats actually being singing cats. My favorite character, other than level headed Gordon (never really learned to play) is Simple Simon, because he is played by none other than Paul Simon (I know, I'm 15, but I love SIMON and Garfunkel). My advice: BUY THIS MOVIE, in fact, buy two, just in case!
