I'll never, ever be able to express how fantastically awesome Alice in Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Comedy is. I'd seen it years ago (the X-rated version) and recently got the R-rated (think "Skinemax"), which we finally got to watch last night. It's so ridiculously, amazingly funny.
- Humpty Dumpty can't get it up until Alice comes along to help. There's a whole song-and-dance sequence about getting his "ding-a-ling up". It includes sing-a-long bouncing dots.
- The 9 7/8 on the Mad Hatter's hat ain't his hat size.
- This Red Queen might be the best one ever. "Give me her head!" takes on a whole new meaning.
It's definitely for adults. It's not for the faint of heart or anyone who will be offended by the considerable sexual license taken with Lewis Carroll's original stories. It was produced in 1976 by Bill Osco, who produced some of the first mainstream adult films, including Flesh Gordon. The music was actually done by Peter Matz, who was nominated for an Oscar for 1976's Funny Lady. Matz also won several Emmy awards, including music direction for The Carol Burnett Show.
It's a crazy, crazy little addition to the Alice universe. Music, sex, and Alice: what's not to love??
