4 stars I consider this film a really hilarious movie, containing both funny jokes and good musical sequences. Ringo Starr plays "Harry The Dwarf", who is some kind of alter ego of Zappa, and also the narrator of the movie. Frank himself appears in the musical numbers, and he's also the mysterious band leader who is seldom seen, except when appearing in disguises when he sneaks in to tape the band players' discussions and trying to steal their good ideas. Along with the music numbers the film paints portraits of the band members, and introduces us "Centerville", an imaginative city where the band is performing and the players are going nuts. There are some funny features here, like Keith Moon performing a nun, a guy who is constantly turning to a monster plus a Swedish cartoon about dental hygiene. If you like the music of Zappa's early 1970's production time, and you are into anarchic Monty Python-like humor, don't miss this fabulous movie!
