No, I think it was the apple prop. It did give the most beleivable performance in the movie.

I'm going with the Bugle "horn" I really believed it's performance as a salty corn chip snack.

I think you could say similar things about Bibi and about Cyndi Lauper. Also, she was supposed to the Girl Next Door Turned Superstar. They even made Bibi and Alphie Canadian for extra wholesomeness and purity. And in Hebrew (Golan-Globus is an Israeli-based production house, so there'd be some New Testament-ness involved, but it would be a lot more Jewish than most Fausty movies), they're not actually Adam and Eve. "Ah-DAHM" means "earth." He was made from earth, so he was called "earth." And she's "Chah-VAH" (the "ch" is pronounced like the "ch" at the beginning of "Chanukah."), which is one of the many Hebrew words for "animal essence," "spirit," or, more to the point, "soul" or "life." Those two names/words for what the first two people were ("Ah-DAHM" also means "Mankind." Fun tidbit: a variant spelling/conjugation of the word is "Adama") were made into "Adam" and "Eve" by people who either couldn't or didn't want to learn to pronounce the real names. "Aleph and Beyt are the first two letters in the Hebrew alphabet, so "Alphy" and "Bibi."

Also, I'm not really a Rabbi. My name is a play on "Hi-Keeba" from Women of the Prehistoric Planet and Rabbi Akiba, a rough contemporary of Jesus's.

When did I miss the zoot-suit comeback in 1994?

Well, just finished watching it. If this supposed to be a source of Christian inspiration, I must report that it only served to reinforce my militant atheism.

I actually waste tons of money.  Bargain hunting is a completely foreign concept to me.

I was just thinking how her life with BIM wasn't too bad...I mean they gave her drugs that one time but we don't ever see her again strung out or anything.

There is the huge apple they give her during the Hell musical number. Not sure why it was red on one half and greenish on the other half, though.

I don't know if it's been brought up, but this has the same ending as Repo Man

What was it with the 70s and these Biblically-based rock operas? Religion wasn't ridiculous enough, so they had to try to repackage the Gospels with lame and garish musical numbers? Did Nixon make good taste illegal, or something?

I read your post about this having the same ending as Repo Man. I fully expected the hippies to pile into the Mercedes like it was a clown car.
