One of the best MST3K send-ups of all time. It's hard to imagine a movie more primed for satire.
It's all there: the ineffective hoods, the Michael Stipe lookalike; the short, ethnic sidekick; "Monk", who gets off some killer lines when he's not coked-up, and of course Peaches, the disturbingly Amazonian wrestler with a room-temperature IQ and the build of a Greyhound bus.
Check out Rita Martinez doing a killer Gilda Radner imitation, as she declares in a pre-NAFTA time, "You theenk you can take advantage of me because I am Mexican!" Well, her agent clearly did.
As the ad copy usually says, "It's an experience you'll want to watch again and again!" And you will - laughter is truly the best medicine.
