I dunno...it's both meant to be funny, and it's a musical.  I guess it might be riffable because it's weird, but beyond that I think it would be just as difficult to riff through a song and dance number as it was for Mike to riff through the many flight sequences in Top Gun

It's been done- pretty much every showing of Rocky Horror is a live riffing, and it's practically scripted.

yeah, comedies don't work so well. and a musical? it's never been done.

let's hope he never riffs it because, because there's no way in hell I'm sitting through it, riffed or not
I really do like pie.

Both Rocky Horror, and Shock Treatment are both high camp. I actually didn't get the humor in Shock until after a few viewings, until I realized how hilarious it actually was. Before then, I had thought it was a fairly mediocre movie with a few good songs, but then I realized that it's pretty fucking funny. Rocky Horror I got immediately.
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!

I liked Rocky Horror, as Tim Curry is brilliant in that film, but personally, I think it runs out of steam about two-thirds in.  Shock Treatment I didn't like at all, though I'm a sucker for Jessica Harper.
