AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Laverne Cox's fabulous portrayal of Frank N. Furter leads a strong ensemble effort, but the stars can't infuse this reimagining with enough energy, creativity, and quirk to make TRHPS: Let's Do the Time Warp Again a worthwhile endeavor.

Critic Reviews for The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (21)

Fox's Rocky Horror feels shallow. There isn't any drive to create a story for queer audiences that challenges the dynamics at play in the original storyline.

Ortega's production is full of curious directorial choices like this. A few hit. Many miss.

A graduate of the High School Musical school of filmmaking (literally), Ortega is also the person responsible for many of the glaring problems here.

October 21, 2016

Director Kenny Ortega frames Rocky Horror as a movie at a midnight showing, complete with audience members shouting lines and holding up props. Instead of adding to the fun, this just feels sad.

October 21, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Faithful, fast-paced, and largely entertaining, this new Rocky Horror Picture Show is neither the calamity fans like myself were fearing nor the triumph that we were all hoping for.

October 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, Fox's version of Rocky Horror is a hesitant mashup of the stage and film versions that somehow manages to extinguish the spark of both.

I wish Adam Lambert had a larger part - he's the only part of the movie I liked.
