The musical numbers in Xanadu were mostly lame, and the romance between Olivia Newton-John and that guy had absolutely no spark whatsoever. I've had the hots for Olivia Newton-John since the 80s, so it pains me not to like a movie with her in it. Xanadu is just so lackluster, when it could've been way more fun. Grey Gardens is pretty much just two old women creeping around a dilapidated house and reminiscing about their glory days (which may not be so glorious). Oh, and it's a documentary. One of the most quirkily entertaining and moving documentaries I've ever seen. (NOTE: I don't generally rate documentaries if they are for informational purposes or are trying to make some obvious point, but I do rate documentaries that are just about interesting people doing their thing.)

Grey Gardens was a good documentary but I have to go with the highly entertaining but cheesy Xanadu. I love Olivia and that memorable soundtrack by ELO.
