Stingray Sam

Film, 2009

It’s hard to review a movie like Stingray Sam. A film with this level of enjoyability and charm is almost immune to criticism in the eyes of the viewer. Did you have a good time watching it? No, you had a great time. Mission accomplished. But even if you decided to look at it with a critical eye you’d be hard pressed to find anything amiss; it looks beautiful, the satire is sharp, the performances are appropriately campy and the music is great. Does a comedy/musical starring cowboys in space sound good to you? Of course it does. But Stingray Sam goes beyond the novelty of it’s genre mixing in a way few do to become an overwhelming, wild, funny, even tender and most of all genuine work. 4.5
