Conclusion: 5/5
Brilliant film!!! A complete classic!! The entire production for this film took just over a month. When they played “Stayin’ Alive” and sped it up they had to get permission from The Bee Gees. This film cost $3.5 million and only took 34 days to make. This is on Barry Norman’s list of 100 Greatest Films of all time that he produced at the start of 2012.
