Based on a documentary series that went for years without ending, this is a movie that takes the form of a musical montage of footage from different eras. It's a format that has already proved itself in many other movies (including Paul F. Tompkins' "Curse of the Golden Flower"). The idea is that each clip looks as if it is from a different time period, and one can see the evolution of the characters' musical skills and style over the decades. For the uninitiated, this is a very funny musical movie, and some of the songs are even quite memorable. By the end, you will understand why the original series came out in the first place. It is even possible to see a lot of its techniques and ideas, because this movie offers you the chance to see clips of the original show (the first film) in a way that most of us haven't seen since "Wizard of Oz" came out (in the 1950s). It also features some memorable scenes, as well as some even more memorable ones. Among the things that make this movie a classic is its nostalgic look at an era that is unfortunately very much in the past. The film is a bit slow-paced, but that doesn't take anything away from the film itself. It's a documentary, after all. There are more subtle references to the original show (especially with the "how I feel"-videos), as well as a few episodes that are even more funny than the ones in the series. It's not perfect. There are a couple of scenes that are cliched and pretty much the same as the original show. There are a couple of songs that are almost a rip-off of the original songs (the only thing I'd say are a few that are actually inspired from the show, like "Sugar Baby") and some characters (such as the pregnant woman in the "How I Feel"-video) that don't even make it into the film itself. But what really stands out in the end is the overall fun. It is a perfectly charming, nostalgic look at the golden age of musicals, and it's a nice way to enjoy the 1980s. And that is what this movie is about. Fun.
