If you're in the mood for a comedy musical but have only 45 minutes to spare, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog may be your only option. Fortunately, it's pretty entertaining. I enjoy the songs more than the dialogue. If you are a fan of musicals, Joss Whedon, Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and/or Felicia Day, it's definitely worth seeing. Simon Helberg, who plays Howard Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory, has a small role as well. There is a lot of bonus material on the DVD. I listened to most of the clever Commentary! The Musical also.

I love this SO MUCH! Lovable dork of an anti-hero...the girl he loves but just cannot talk to ("I'm so close to a real audible connection"), & the arrogant superhero who is his nemesis. And it's a musical! The harmony of Neil Patrick Harris & Felicia Day on "My Eyes" is so amazing, it will give you goosebumps. If you have a great sense of humor & cannot live without music in your life, then watch this...& sing along. :-)

I understand that is was intended to be the new Rocky Horror Picture Show, but it just misses on so many levels. You should still watch it because Fillion and Harris are wonderful--and much better singers than we suffered through with Rocky. Rocky offered us two sweet innocent "kids" facing evil, but this film wants us to embrace evil and suggest we should want to be evil. I don't' see it as becoming a cult classic--sadly it is missing the point of most cult movies... I do need to point out that when two black background extras appeared in the same scene, I realize this is one of the whitest movies I've seen in several years. Whedon has moved too far from the innocent but lovable hero, and Fillion too far from the "ruggedly handsome" cult hero. Such a waste.

I get that the point was to make it ridiculously horrible, but it really was. Despite not really liking it much, I would probably suggest it to someone else depending on their interests.

Yikes... Thank goodness it was a short flick. More bonus material than flick, yikes! To be honest, didn't watch "bonus material". Story line was super predictable. Some good moments, but overall would be more enjoyable as a dinner show. Sorry!

Joss Whedon created this film online (it was available to view for free) to show the industry that good movies didn't have to be big budget blockbusters. What he did with a very small budget was quite remarkable. This film is funny, touching, and an instant cult classic. Both Nathan Fillion (Firefly/Castle) and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother/host of nearly every award show) sing in this musical/comedy and they appear to be having a great time. It is classic Joss Whedon and a really entertaining movie with several catchy songs.

I loved "Firefly",.. BUT. This shortie reminds me of an old Woddy Allen two-liner : "The food here is so terrible,... and in such small portions". It could have been much better.

Who else but Joss Whedon (Avengers, Buffy, Firefly, etc) and his talented siblings could mashup a 1) superhero, 2) live action, 3) musical; original songs split among three sections totaling about 45 mins. The music soundtrack CD is the one and only in my car to this day. Made and released for free over the internet during the failed 2008 writer's strike. Within a year dvd sales had more than paid back salaries and production costs. DrH hadn't appeared on TV yet *still* won an Emmy. Lead cast: Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and [queen of internet gamers] Felicia Day. See it, tell your friends, and repeat. Siggy, from Penny to BillyBuddy: "Don't worry. Captain Hammer will save us."

This satire by Josh Whedon and crew was funny, enjoyable, and the songs are just plain catchy. Loved it from beginning to end. For those of you who are not familiar with Josh Whedon's work, be prepared. He never does what you think he is going to do, and there is alway, ALWAYS a twist! This film was done as several mini internet episodes during the actor's guilde strick a few years ago. All of the acting in the movie, production, and writing was done for free just because Josh had a vision. The film is different, and if you are looking for something out of the ordinary, this is the movie for you.

This slow-paced, weak-humored, poorly-scripted Comedy/Musical was the absolute dregs of "horrible" filmmaking.... Yes. Horrible....The dumb, easily-forgettable songs were horrible.... Superhero, Captain Hammer was horrible with his despicable mind-set on laying every woman that he possibly could.... Precious Penny, the do-gooder, was horrible with her self-righteous mission to help the homeless..... And, last, but not least, the petty, sniveling, little stalker, Dr. Horrible was the most horrible one of all, with his boring, unfunny monologues and his pure vanity-boy, frost-tipped hair..... This episode was only 45 minutes in length, but it dragged on with its horrible stupidity for what seemed like an eternity.... Horrible. Absolutely HORRIBLE!!

Lyrics to Bad Horse (Letter) :

Bad Horse
Bad Horse
Bad Horse
Bad Horse

He rides across the nation
The thoroughbred of sin
He got the application
You just sent in

It needs evaluation
So let the games begin
A heinous crime, a show of force
A murder would be nice, of course

Bad Horse
Bad Horse
Bad Horse
He’s bad

The Evil League of Evil
Is watching, so beware
The grade that you receive
Will be your last, we swear

So make the Bad Horse gleeful
Or he’ll make you his mare . . .

Get saddled up
There’s no recourse
It’s Hi-Ho Silver
Signed Bad Horse
