Fresh: For all its annoyances -- and there are many -- the film somehow sears its way into the mind's eye.
Even though I can't buy it.... (Parents, money) I LOVE BYE BYE BIRDIE! ONE OF MY FAVORITE MUSICALS!! Woot woot!
Watched this in my choir class and now we are putting on a musical cant wait but GREAT movie
Not my favorite
As much as I like the show and the movie, I think the 1995 TV version was better. It followed the stage version better and most of the songs were in there and in their right place. No offense to anyone who likes this version.
