The Pirate Movie

Basically a cheesy, horny 80’s update of Pirates of Penzance, The Pirate Movie is a lot more fun than Pirates of the Caribbean. Less of a rock musical than an all out 80’s pop musical, it keeps some of the songs from the original that it’s based on and mixes them with some horribly over-emotive ballads. It’s basically a big joke from end to end but it’s really funny. Also, the song Pumpin’ and Blowin’ is profoundly perverse no matter what it claims to be about.

Reefer Madness

I’m sad that this Showtime movie wasn’t more successful than it was. A mock musical based on the original cheesy public service announcement, this is a hilarious movie. And, it works great as a musical as well because it’s so chock full of songs that it doesn’t ever get boring. Plus, Alan Cumming and Kristen Bell are hilarious. I couldn’t find a trailer to this movie so below is one of my favorite scenes.
