Not my cup of tea!
24 October 2012 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This is a short film to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the popular song "Fight For Your Right".

"Fight for Your Right Revisited" is described to be a parody of themselves, filled with the hottest stars and loads of fun. I was certainly impressed by the number of stars they managed to assemble for the short film. I was also impressed by the big budget production on a short film. However, I was not as impressed by the humour. The story seems all over the place, and I lost interest in it by five minutes. Towards the end, just before the police car arrives, the scene becomes so awful that my jaw dropped.

"Fight for Your Right Revisited" is not my cup of tea. As it is about an acid fuelled trip, maybe I have to be high to appreciate it?
