The Apple is a 1980 musical science fiction film that was directed by Menahem Golan. The movie is set in the future, in the year 1994, and follows the story of Alphie and Bibi, two aspiring musicians who live in a dystopian society controlled by a massive corporation called Boogalow International Music. Alphie and Bibi live in a rundown apartment complex and dream of making it big in the music industry. They get their big break when they are offered a contract by Boogalow International Music, which promises to make them famous overnight. The two sign the contract without reading the fine print and quickly realize that they have sold their souls to the music industry.

Alphie and Bibi undergo a transformation, going from innocent and naive musicians to over-the-top, flashy pop stars. Boogalow International Music controls every aspect of their lives, including their clothing, hairstyles, and even their thoughts. They are forced to record songs that are full of questionable lyrics and suggestive dance moves that go against their moral beliefs.

As their popularity grows, Alphie and Bibi become trapped in a world of excess and debauchery. They start to lose touch with their true selves and the people they once were. They are constantly surrounded by paparazzi and fans who treat them as if they are gods.

The film takes a turn when a group of religious fanatics called the "BIMites" start a crusade against Boogalow International Music and its mass-produced, soulless music. The BIMites stage protests and rallies, and even try to kidnap Alphie and Bibi to save them from their shallow and vain existence.

The Apple is a visually stunning film that is full of bright colors, neon lights, and elaborate musical numbers. The songs in the movie are catchy and upbeat, and the dance sequences are choreographed to perfection. The costumes are outrageous and over-the-top, adding to the film's overall campy vibe.

The movie is a scathing social commentary on the music industry and the way it exploits young artists. It explores themes of greed, commercialism, and morality, and shows how these things can corrupt and destroy even the purest of souls.

Overall, The Apple is a fun and entertaining movie that is perfect for fans of musicals and science fiction. It's a movie that will make you want to dance and sing along, while also making you think about the state of the music industry and the value of artistic integrity.

The Apple is a 1980 fantasy movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3 and a MetaScore of 39.
