    more from this reviewer

    Now we are here...in Xanadu....

    This film is so cheesy! So, so, so cheesy! I mean, anything that combines Greek muses, an artist who paints LP covers, a cartoon sequence, and a disco roller skating rink can't be anything but cheesy. But I can't help loving it anyway. Part of that love arises from the fact that the wonderful Gene Kelly is in this film. He adds a little charm to anything he's in, and despite being 68 years old in Xanadu, he's still a lot of fun to watch. In addition, Electric Light Orchestra wrote and performed the music---with help from Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly, of course---and it's their music that really makes this film work. So if you're in the mood to watch something lighthearted and campy, Xanadu's pretty hard to beat.

    Xanadu

    Great blast from the past movie. I loved it as a child and still love it today. Olivia and Gene Kelly are such a great team. The songs are some of my favorites from Olivia. Loved it almost as much as Grease.

    Suprisingly Good!

    I heard horrible things about this movie when it came out in 1980. I was a fan of Olivia Newton-John and decided I did not want to watch her in a bad movie. I bought it 1n 2007 and just watched it. I was shocked...it was very entertaining. I can't believe I waited 27 years! The only real flaw is that Olivia has such a small part with little dialog. Her character never really developed. Wonderful music and very charming indeed. Shame on movie reviewers. To me, it is better than Grease. I never cared for the 50's.

    Great entertainment!!

    I saw this movie when it first came out at the theater in 1980. I was fourteen at the time and thought it was the greatest movie ever. Of course, now, I know it is a little cheesy but it is still very entertaining and a great way to spend an hour and a half. It's escapism and isn't that what movies are supposed to be? I would take it over some of the "great" movie I have seen lately any day.

    A Fun Movie!

    This is one of my favorite weird campy movies! I first saw Xanadu in a movie theater when I was around 14 or 15 years old and I also recall watching it several times on HBO. I'm fans of both Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton-John and I loved the singing and dancing and really loved the songs that were performed by Olivia, and ELO.
