Review by Buttercup (posted on 18-Apr-2007)

This movie is wonderful! I love how the Who were able to bring this wonderful album to life in this movie. It may seem like you're supposed to be on an acid trip to watch it but it's great anyway. Many stars light up the screen and no one could forget Eric Clapton's version of "Eyesight to the Blind" or Elton John's version of "Pinball Wizard". I feel like this movie is just random and funny and hopefull. Whether you like the Who or not, you should love this movie. Some scenes may seem unneeded and sort of pointless like "Champagne". Nevertheless, this is a classic and a masterpiece!
