Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Yup. This movie is stupid."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Semi-Gloss Newton-John, Gene Kelly fantasy musical is dated, but kind of fun."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"campy joyful fun, with a wee bit too much cheese"
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"Look at Xanadu with an eye toward storytelling superiority and your head will explode. To appreciate the madness within, one must take in the blinding neon sights with an open heart and at least one nostril-coating line of cocaine."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Kooky abandon and unembarassed chutzpah make it a movie nobody dared to love"
‑ Nathaniel Rogers, Film Experience
"There's never been a movie quite like this, and there never will be again. And that may not be a bad thing."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"While the movie is every bit as garish and overly shellacked as the other bomb musicals of its era, at least this one looks like irresponsible amounts of money were thrown around."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"Great tunes fill this flavorful bubble gum movie."
‑ Gerry Shamray, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
