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" sidestep 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's 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. --Gary S. Dalkin

My daughter's school recently put on a production of this story, and we decided to buy it as I had not seen it for years. I was pleased to know that you didn't have to have the subtitles on as that would have been annoying for the whole film. We thoroughly enjoyed it and then re-watched the songs with the words and sang along. I felt the film was as fresh as when it was released all those years ago and my daughter loved it watching it for the first time. A great family film, that has stood the test of time.

Well, to start I have to say how happy I am with the speed of delivery on this item. I had it literally next day.
The item arrived in excellent condition, no dents or scratches.
This is an excellent film for kids, family or nostalgia. I bought it for my daughter as she is performing in a stage adaptation of the film at her school. Also, this is one of my wife's favourite films.
This is the sing-a-long edition, which means you get 'karaoke style' words appear on your TV screen during the main songs of the film. This feature, however, can be switched off within the DVD menu to allow for normal viewing. Perfect if you have budding budding actress in the house.
If this film is your sort of thing and you're thinking of buying a copy, then I would highly recommend this edition.

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.

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.

A really fantastic movie - the children loved it (ages between 6 and 10). Unfortunately the dvd we were sent kept jumping (annoying), and there was a paper flyer included ('Radar' from Optimum Releasing) which I felt was entirely inappropriate for inclusion with a U-certificate film (it was advertising 15 and 18-certificate films). Get the movie - but check inside the packaging before you hand it over to your little angels!

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.

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.
