Release date: 1995
Not to be confused with the year 2000 animation this is a live action musical. It was based around Bobby Pickett’s famous novelty song (1962) and a 1967 stage musical entitled, “I'm Sorry the Bridge Is Out, You'll Have to Spend the Night”, which Pickett co-wrote with Sheldon Allman. The sad and sorry thing is, and I’m sorry if I’m breaking your rose tinted glasses, this should have stayed in the sixties, it really should have.
Apparently the film changes many elements from the stage show, but whilst the Rocky Horror Picture Show was predated by “I’m sorry…” by eight years the elements of the clean cut teens breaking down outside a mad scientist’s castle during a storm is now synonymous with the RHPS.

Honestly, this did so very little for me and, whilst I feel cruel, 2.5 out of 10 is all I can give it.
