The Rocky Horror Picture Show Review

The Rocky Horror Picture Show was first released in 1975. The movie is based on a United Kingdom play from 1974. The movie has a cult following and still airs in theaters in certain cities. The movie is known for doing something new and the songs. The songs include "Time Warp", "Sweet Transvestite", and others. This movie has a bunch of transvestite characters which makes people assume that it's not for heterosexuals. That is obviously not true. If it was true, there wouldn't be such a huge cult following and the movie wouldn't still be airing in theaters after 35 years.
The plot is about a couple that wants to visit a doctor that they know. Their car breaks down so they walk to the nearest house which just so happens to be the transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter's house. They are first introduced to the butler Riff-Raff who guides them into a room in the house. The room is full of people doing a performance of the well known song "Time Warp". After that song, Dr. Frank-N-Furter appears and sings "Sweet Transvestite". The end of the movie parodies science fiction movies. This movie started the beginning of Tim Curry's acting career.
As you can tell by the description, the movie is not meant for kids. This is a movie where you especially have to pay attention to the R rating. Kids may want to see it because it is a cult classic and they may have read great reviews about it, but they shouldn't watch it. This movie is good for older teens and above. Despite the three family friendly songs in the beginning, the rest has sexual undertones.
