use to like it
This film has not aged well. The theater scene with ernest borgnine moving his head in tune to the music is funny.

PLEASE!!!!
Please stop putting this on television. Anyone wanting to watch has probably got it recorded from one of the dozens of times it's been on. Give us something new!

Strapped for Cash?
Good movie - but when you're recycling a movie you show over and over and OVER again on ITV3...

Didn't Realize
I forgot how good this movie was. If you remember it as more than cult - if you remember it as great: you're in for a pleasant surprise. This is a phenomenal work of art.
