    Never a better family film than Bugsy Malone

    Bugsy Malone, a must see for all the family no matter what your age, i've seen the film so many times I've lost count. The music is brilliant and my favourite song has got to be the down and outs song. The kids acting was great their proffesionalism was great, they couldn't have gotton better actors if they'd tried.

    I CANT GET OVER IT !!!

    I am sure i am not alone in my passion for the movie, major stars all captured at youth immitating adults??? It cant get any better than that BUT IT DOES! Micheal Jackson playing piano and singing!!! Never since that movie have I been as involved emotionaly intillectualy and passionately as I did the first time I saw it... roughly '77. I will even go as far as to say that we should make sure our children and neices and nefews see Bugsy, I believe it definetely opens creative thinking. If there is a show bizz spark in a child it will be seen on his/her face as they watch this incredible masterpeice.

    THIS MOVIE IS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This movie is hilarious, it is funny, and there is just something about it that makes you want to watch it again and again and again!!! At first we all thought (my 7th grade classmates) that the movie was going to be stupid and boing. But we loved it and i highly recommend it to all generations!!!!

    I Love this Film!!!

    The acting, singing (though lip-synched), and dancing is awesome! It's a great family movie. Kids get to watch a movie where a fight involves food, not fists. Where guns shoot whipped cream, not bullets. Watching Bugsy Malone as an adult brought back great childhood memories. Specifically, when my dad would set up the 16mm projector in the backyard and we would watch Bugsy Malone with family and friends.
