'Rocky Horror Picture Show' Fox Review: 5 Best Moments From 2016 TV Movie Remake [VIDEO]
The 2016 TV movie remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show airs last night on Fox, and while it may not have fully lived up to the 1975 original, it still had its fair share of memorable moments.
As is often the case with remakes, Fox's attempt at bringing The Rocky Horror Picture Show (subtitled Let's Do the Time Warp Again) did not supplant the original. Many critics found that the TV movie was just a carbon copy of the 1975 cult classic, but without the same spark and instantly iconic performances, like Tim Curry's Frank-N-Furter.
But reviews weren't all bad as there were some fun performances and scenes scattered throughout the remake. Here are our five highlights:
The Rocky Horror Picture Show's most memorable song is "Time Warp," so the remake had a lot to live up to, as far as getting it right. Luckily, the remake featured some of that fun mania and some strong vocals from Reeve Carney, Christina Milian and Annaleigh Ashford.
Speaking of strong vocals, American Idol alum Adam Lambert stole the show with his minor role as Eddie. His showcase song, "Hot Patootie", showed off Lambert's insane vocal range and movie star charisma, causing some to say that he should have played Frank-N-Furter.
Laverne Cox's standout moment was her performance of "Sweet Transvestite" - with the actress getting to ham it up like nobody's business.
While Brad (Ryan McCartan) and Janet (Victoria Justice) spend much of Rocky Horror reacting to the, well, horrors around them, their "Dammit Janet" duet was a shining moment for both actors.
Curry appeared in a cameo role, playing the movie's Narrator. He appeared a few times throughout the movie, making appearances in "Time Warp" and 'Don't Dream It".
The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again is available to watch in full on Fox NOW and Hulu.
