    GREAT soundtrack. So yes, it's a cheesy movie which was probably taken far too seriously 30+ years ago, but I'm giving it a break. It's charming. And the description on my VHS jacket is brilliant.

    An actual film of unrelenting silliness. Far from being a "miracle of rare device" (yes, the movie even quotes Coleridge), this is a disaster of common occurrence - a poorly directed, ineptly edited, badly photographed bundle of celluloid. [14 Aug 1980]

    Xanadu cannot possibly be described as a good movie, but it can be recommended to those who can tolerate large amounts of intravenous marzipan. The music is highly enjoyable -- though perhaps more so once one gets the record album home and isn't bothered with the story -- and the film so unerringly airy that it has a beneficent, tranquilizing, bemusing effect.

    Xanadu is truly a stupendously bad film whose only salvage is the music.
