    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

    The powerhouse of the film is Tim Curry's cross-dressing alien, Frank N. Furter, who would never reach these kinds of gloriously demented heights again. show more

    Trevor Johnston Time Out London

    The material inspires affection, given its knowing pastiche of everything from Universal horrors to '50s grade-Z sci-fi, and a shamelessly hedonistic, fiercely independent sensibility that must have seemed a welcome relief from the mainstream bombast of other '70s musicals. show more

    Ty Burr Entertainment Weekly

    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. show more

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

    Dave Kehr Chicago Reader

    The wit is too weak to sustain a film, and the songs all sound the same. show more

    Keith Phipps The A.V. Club

    The plot is only semi-comprehensible, but the nearly non-stop musical numbers-brilliant conflations of glam-rock and showtunes-and transgressive sexual energy keep things moving. show more

    What can I say about this movie other than- "I LOVE IT!" It is a classic. You have to see it. I suggest going to the midnight screening if it plays in your area.
