If You Missed It Last Night… Watch Spike Lee’s ‘Bad 25’ Now!

If You Missed It Last Night... Watch Spike Lee's 'Bad 25' Now!

It aired on ABC last night – Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson documentary, Bad 25.

If you missed it, the film is now available online, thanks to Hulu; BUT, as I said in my review of it, earlier this morning, you should know that what aired last night was an edited-for-TV version of the film that was released in theaters for a week in October. What we have here is a 64-minute version; the original cut is 123 minutes. So you’ll be watching a film that’s about half the length of the original.

If you absolutely must watch this, go ahead; but I’d suggest waiting for the full version to be released on home video. Unfortunately, that won’t be until February, 2013. 

If you just can’t wait that long, then here’s the 64-minute version, thankfully with a lot fewer commercial breaks than the ABC broadcast last night.

You can read my thoughts on the film (as well as others), posted earlier today, HERE.
