9/11 attack on World Trade CenterThere have been a handful of films that have documented the 9/11 terrorist attacks - such as World Trade Center and United 93 - but to date no one has managed to transform the harrowing atrocity which claimed the lives of 2,977 people into a hillarious musical. That - rather unbelievably - is about to change with the release of Clear Blue Tuesday, a low budget musical based on the tragic events of September 11 2001, released in the US last week.

The Guardian reports that its director, Elizabeth Lucas, believes that music helps us "look at ourselves and laugh at our tragedies". However, judging from the trailer, the movie is so bad viewers are more likely to be appalled than stunned. However, if a bunch of actors to old for Glee singing soft rock ballads about the aftermath terrorism appeals this is the movie for you.

The film which includes original songs with titles such as 'The Day The Sky Fell' and 'Brand New Sky' follows the lives of eleven New Yorkers - including a harpist and a Bono lookalike - touched by the tragedy over the course of seven years.

In America, the musical has been receiving mixed reviews. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that said that the film is 'the sort of egregious fatuousness and self-indulgence that is all too endemic to off-Broadway stages.' The New York Times however wrote that 'the good vibes are palpable, despite the sadness of much of the material'.

Fortunately, there is no plan for the film to be released in the UK.
