    Variety

    Most of the jokes that might have seemed jolly fun on stage now appear obvious and even flat. The sparkle's gone.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Dr. Furter is played by a British actor named Tim Curry, who bears a certain resemblance to Loretta Young in drag. He's the best thing in the movie, maybe because he seems to be having the most fun.

    Entertainment Weekly Ty Burr

    For a movie that's mostly a plotless mix of old sci-fi flicks and Bowie-esque gender-bending, Rocky Horror continues to charm. That's due in part to the honest delight we take in the freedoms this movie so cheerfully flaunts.

Rocky Horror Picture Show by daiseyleu
The movie speaks for itself but the live cast did an amazing job...the guy in the front row had the BEST call backs and it was a great time for all!

36 years watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show and it is more fun every time. by NWSolarJohn
A dizzying experience, made all the more so by the wonderful shadow cast at the theater. With a crowd who knows the props, lyrics, dance moves, and audience call-outs every show is different and every showing is fun! There is always the fun of indoctrinating virgins (first timers) to the RHPS. You only get to be a RHPS virgin once so enjoy it, I have never seen anyone die having their cherry popped at The Rocky Horror Picture Show. So bring a Virgin to the next RHPS you go to so you can watch them squirm. I have seen RHPS hundreds of times since 1978 and every time is a unique experience! Don't dream it be it!
