Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish (from the award-winning 90s TV programme The Adam and Joe Show) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Adam’s choice, Bugsy Malone.

Bugsy Malone is a 1976 gangster musical comedy film. The directorial debut of Alan Parker stars child actors playing adult roles with Scott Baio (Bugsy Malone), John Cassisi (Fat Sam), and Jodie Foster (Tallulah) in the lead roles. Except these prohibition-era gangsters use splurge guns instead of bullets and cars are powered by pedals.

It’s no surprise Bugsy Malone ended up as an extremely popular school production – even Adam and Joe made their own version at school – so don’t go into Bugsy Malone expecting an acting tour de force, that said Jodie Foster is easily the star of the show.


Bugsy Malone is best viewed as a child, possibly at school, sometime between 1976 and 1990 (probably!), not as an adult in 2020 or if you are Adam’s children. The recommend ability for Bugsy Malone was a mixed score and entirely dependant on your nostalgia levels. Fives across the board from Kobi and Joe help Bugsy Malone to score a very respectable 4.32 overall.
