Funny, unseen MST3K precursor
30 January 2001 | by Flinx-2See all my reviews

My pops took me to this one when it was showing at our local Fine Arts theater (not that it's fine art, but definitely small theater material).

The basic idea is a voice over of a B movie with comedic intentions. It's been a long time since I saw it, but I recall a send-up of 50's Sci-Fi which was far more humorous than anything Jay Leno has been involved with since. One particularly inappropriate gag with a spliced-in sex toy stands out as a high point.

7 out of 10, and I'd love the chance to see it again.
