Bizarre, overlong low-budget independent depicting the auditions held by a dying librarian who wants to remake Showboat as 'a musical comedy with the stench of death'. Patchily amusing as it wheels on freaks, eccentrics and talentless no-hopers - with all references to the MGM classic bleeped out (resulting in a dreadful Gong Show-style cacophony) - it's all a little indulgent.
