Xanadu

Critics Consensus

Not even spandex and over-the-top musical numbers can save Xanadu from questionable acting, unimpressive effects, and a story unencumbered by logic.

    This horribly dated 1980 fantasy is such a trashy mess with no structure that it doesn't surprise me that the script was written during filming, and even if it has some (few) nice songs, it is shocking how they threw so much money into something that looks so tacky and cheap.

    Deliciously bad and campy. An absolute delight!

    This movie is generally regarded as one of the worst movies ever, but it does have some good music, so I gave it one star.

    An 80's film with Olivia Newton John after her performanse in Greese. Nothing special exept one good song.
