Product description

Product Description

Alan Parker's musical spoof of gangster films features an all-child cast with guns that fire cream. When gang warfare erupts between Fat Sam and Dandy Dan, hustler Bugsy Malone (Scott Baio), singer Tallulah (Jodie Foster) and newly arrived showgirl Blousey Brown (Florrie Dugger) find themselves caught up in the middle of it.

From Amazon.co.uk

Writer-director Alan Parker's feature debut Bugsy Malone is a pastiche of American movies, a musical gangster comedy set in 1929, featuring prohibition, showgirls and gang warfare, with references to everything from Some Like It Hot to The Godfather. Uniquely, though, all the parts are played by children, including an excellent if underused Jodie Foster as platinum-blonde singer Tallulah, Scott Baio in the title role and a nine-year-old Dexter Fletcher wielding a baseball bat. Cream-firing "spluge guns" side-step any real violence and the movie climaxes cheerfully with the biggest custard pie fight this side of Casino Royale (1967).

Unfortunately for a musical, Paul Williams' score--part honky-tonk jazz homage, part 1970s Elton John-style pop--lets the side down with a lack of memorable tunes. Nevertheless, Parker's direction is spot on and the look of the film is superb, a fantasy movie-movie existing in the same parallel reality as The Cotton Club and Chicago. A rare British love letter to classic American cinema, Bugsy Malone remains a true original; in Parker's words "the work of a madman" and one of the strangest yet most stylish children's films ever made.

On the DVD: Bugsy Malone's picture is presented non-anamorphically at 1.66:1, with rich colours and plenty of detail. The print is excellent. The audio is stereo only and while full and clear seems to leave a hole in the middle of the soundstage. Extras include an informative commentary by Parker, eight pages of trivia notes by Parker and a very informative 12-page booklet, also by the director. There are three trailers, nine character profiles, two scored galleries, and more imaginatively, a multi-angle option to compare Parker's sketches, their comic-strip realisation by Graham Thomson and the finished opening sequence. Quality over quantity make this a strong collection of extras, though recollections from the stars would have added so much more. --Gary S.

It has Jodie Foster it has to be a film. Nimm's Island she got really wet there Same as Russell Crowe sailing South Atlantic when we loved the French Clippers. If actors did not jump in the deep, Jean Reno, the rest of us would have nothing to watch, philosophy, Urban history, Did USA learn from Foster Scott Baio Winkler Kurt Russell ? probably not but that is why I buy them It had an influence on me when first printed Maybe one day in New York de Niro. Maybe we save England. Brilliant film with social message. Or social massage if you are political. Seems to have more influence in the Old Europe than America. Perhaps we caused America? French slums Dickens John Major 1980s 2010s governmental damage.

Ordered it for my Children and they love it, so nostalgic, great songs directed wonderfully which is why it's stood the test of time. I don't think Alan Parker got the appreciation he deserved. Works really well and the accompanying book/pampflet is very informative. Maybe some one will produce a proper book on this film with Colour pictures, Directors interview etc.

Purchased this DVD as daughter has a part in the 'Bugsy' school production. The musical score is fab and although it is a fairly old film now, the quality wasn't too bad. However, my daughter did get a tad bored in the middle - but it did the job and now she has some idea of what the whole production is going to be like on stage.

What can I say, some of today's better performers having a run out as youngsters and evidently having a good time doing it, while mostly playing absolutely straight.
Some catchy tunes, a ridiculous plot, a few nods to well known serious films and it all ends in one of the best food fights ever filmed.
If you are in the mood to be cheered up it is hard to beat.

Haven't seen this for ages. My teenage daughter prompted me to buy this as my 22 year son had never seen it. It was just as good as I remembered it, very funny, very clever and the songs just as catchy as I first thought. If you have never seen this film, I would highly recommend it. In a world of CGI and super sophisticated animation, this film is incredibly 'low-tech' and doesn't need to rely on a huge production budget to be highly entertaining.

If you're put off the "Sing Along Edition" because you think it'll have subtitles all the way through (as I did!) DON'T BE. You have the option to watch as the original film, whole film with words or selected musical scenes with words! Perfect for me & the aspiring 7yr old I bought it for.

Just great for the kids to watch as its so different from the PC bilge currently put out. Did feel a bit uncomfortable with some of the costumes though. Great sing along and interesting to see actors who went on to be big when they were so young.
