"200 Motels" (feature) by Ringo Starr – **

First released: 1972

The majority of Ringo’s films are not very good or bizarre at best. This one falls into both categories. Even though I am a fan of Frank Zappa, this was not Frank’s best moment. I also like Flo & Eddie (Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan) from The Turtles, but this still doesn’t make for a good film. 200 Motels is confusing and noisy and worst of all unfunny and tuneless. It is boring. Ringo is about the only bright spot making a cameo as Zappa himself, but this is momentary. A film that should be avoided. It’s not on a commercially available DVD. Good thing, too.
