Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.

New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.

Musical Hell Review: Happily Ever After

What's worse than bad sequels, bad knockoff movies, and bad kids' movies?  How about something that's all of the above?  Here's the movie that sank Filmation, Happily Ever After!


  1. Ever since I was a little kid watching her on The Love Boat, Carol Channing has been an object of terror for me. Was there ever a time when she was considered attractive? Like, back when she was in Hello Dolly or something? It's that baby-doll voice.
    And Dom Deluise and Phyllis Diller, geez, they were sure scraping the bottom of the barrel for this one.

    1. Honestly, you're asking the wrong person--I've never been a fan of Channing's voice, even in her younger days. It always feels like she's working extra hard to get the words past her teeth.
