Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

The owner of a financially foundering skin-flick production company decides that the only way to save it is to put on a Busby Berkeley-esque pornographic musical -- sort of a Broadway meets Times Square affair. Ribald humor, bawdy songs and plenty of skin abounds in this sophomoric satire that while unabashedly trashy, has developed a bit of a cult following. Songs include: "The First Nudie Musical," "The Lights and the Smiles," "Lesbian Butch Dyke," "Five Dancing Dildos," "Perversion," "Honey, What Ya Doin' Tonight," "I Don't Have to Hide Anymore," "Where Is a Man."

Audience Reviews for The First Nudie Musical


How could this be a cult classic? At the brink of bankruptcy, the production company must produce a pornographic musical to save the day. Filled with outrageous numbers and cheeky nudity. The First Nudie Musical is a flimsy comedy even laugh tracks won't save it.

I just love movies about making movies! This one is very 70s, it's very funny, and the songs are funny too. I liked it.

Not near as dirty as one would think of a movie with wall to wall nudity all the way through it. In fact, it has kind of a childlike, endearing and naive sense of comedy throughout it. I really liked this and Kimmel's Spaceship, finding them both very funny and Kimmel to also be a very funny performer. It's a shame that he seemed to give up on comedy shortly after this.
