A Pearl Among Pebbles
13 June 2010 | by Captain_CobwebSee all my reviews

Without a doubt this movie captures it all, Tim Curry is excellent as usual even though his Irish accent is probably the worst i have heard it just seems to fit anyway.

His mannerisms and facial expressions make you laugh out loud. i just love the way this film was put together and am so surprised that it has not been shown more, this is one of those golden films that will someday be shown to a generation of new young watchers who will give it a cult status.

Bravo to all involved and my hat is off to Tim Curry for his great talent. Thank You.
