The musical chronicle of an East German glam rocker whose botched sex change operation left her not quite a he, nor a she.  Want a weird bit of trivia?  My wife loves this film.  She asked me to review it as a sort of present for her birthday.  Happy birthday!

A strong contender for the worst movie of all time.  This is one of those rare films that make me wish to cause great harm to anyone involved in the production.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

You're a sick, sick man.  IFC was playing that piece of trash constantly a couple of years back, and I could not watch it for five minutes without wanting to barf.

Phyllis Stein. That is an interesting name, especially for an agent, and I can't help but think, the name is something of an in-joke.

Frankenstein, of course, but also the word philistine, which is defined as lacking in appreciation for art or culture.

I have seen far worse films but it doesn't forgive this film for being rather bad. A friend of mine happen to tell me what a great film this happen to be. I know now he was either lying to me, was really stoned when he seen it, or has no taste in films whatsoever.
While it doesn't evoke feelings of committing acts of violence against those responsible for it, I do feel they owe me the time back in my life for having watched it. I could of used that time watching something more intelligent like monkey poo fights at the zoo.

I haven't seen Hedwig, although a friend has recommended it to me before and I dig the music.   In spite of that, having seen literally no less than a thousand movies, and dozens of the positively worst movies ever made, I'm very cynical when someone declares a film "worst movie ever."  I have a Quaker's faith there are FAR worse movies than "Hedwig."

Andrew, as long as you're reviewing offbeat horror musicals/rock opera's, you should probably grant some review space to Phantom Of The Paradise and Big Meat Eater.

Oh, and not to shill or anything, but any and every b-lover worth the trash he watches should know: Howard The Duck somehow slipped past George Lucas' keen radar and was released on American DVD last month.  I am a VERY proud owner!

I have seen over a thousand movies myself, most of them bad, and I'm having trouble thinking of any that were significantly worse than Hedwig.  I would rather watch The Jar than Hedwig.  I would rather watch Headless Eyes than Hedwig.  I would rather watch Ron Jeremy doing obscene things with ground beef than watch Hedwig.

When someone who likes musical numbers and affirmative genderbending in their movies tells me that this was 'unwatchable' I'll listen to their case.

If you usually can't stand the stuff you have no one to blame but yourself for wasted time.

My parents (in their 50's) turned up at the cinema one night and this was playing - when asked if they should see it the 'human' behind the counter  told my parents that it was a great movie.

They walked out of the movie early on, and my father threatened physical violence against the guy who sold them the tickets.
They got their money back.  Thumbup
