Goofs

As the group is driving away from the airport, they come across a car that had been attacked by the Slime People. In a close-up you can see a couple of other vehicles parked behind it through the car's window, however in a wide view the car is up against the side of a hill and no other vehicles would have been visible.

Stenchy stinker slimes viewer with bottom-feeding bunk!
16 May 1999 | by (Keene, New Hampshire USA) – See all my reviews

Suck on your Slippery Elm Throat Lozenges, slop syrup on your snack of strawberry shortcake, and prepare to be stuck to your sofa in shock as this slimy celluloid silliness slides onto the tv screen! Robert Hutton battles the bubblegum beasts bursting from the bowels of L.A., but neither he nor bubblebrained blonde Judee Morton (the only other actual acting talent) can beat the grad "B" badness of this boring box-office bilge! Still, some of the nonsensical newscasts are a hoot and a holler! "Stick" to a lot of booze if you choose to watch this ooze!
