Something appealing. Something appalling. Something for everyone...a comedy tonight!

One of the hottest burlesque shows that ever hit Broadway comes to the screen showcasing the enormous talents of Tony Award winner Zero Mostel, Phil Silvers, Jack Gilford (Cocoon), Buster Keaton and Michael Crawford. Featuring keenly clever tunes like "Comedy Tonight" and "Lovely", this wild Stephen Sondheim musical about a raucous gaggle of ancient Romans is a flip, glib and sophisticated, yet rump-slappingly bawdy and fast-paced look at the seamy underside of classical Rome through hipster's shades.

When a wily, witty, lying, lazy, cheating slave discovers that his master's son is in love with the girl-next-door - a virgin courtesan - he promises to help win her support in exchange for his freedom. But the road to romance is blocked with stunning surprises, cunning disguises - and the wildest chariot race ever!

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum

Total :


Well, what can I say. When you have a movie with a cast of Michael Crawford, Buster Keaton and Phil Silvers, the movie has to be funny. Set in ancient Roman times when men were the head of the household and male hormones are raging, it has star crossed lovers and divided families which make this film very funny. The movie is a Musical based on the Stage Play of the same name.
