The shortest classic I've ever seen
30 August 2004 | by (Milverton, Ontario Canada) – See all my reviews

The first time I saw this movie was in the mid 70s. It was a small town theatre (Elora Gorge Cinema) that held about 120 people. It was part of a midnight show and sandwiched between Reefer Madness and the Beatles' Let It Be.

Everyone sparked up when Reefer Madness started so when Bambi made her appearance we were all pleasantly buzzed.

When Godzilla made his appearance we were all pretty much destroyed. That was the first (and one of the few) times I've seen people actually rolling in the aisles. Some people were still laughing 10 minutes later and afterwards, it always brought a smile to our faces when mentioned.

I've seen it a few times since then and it still cracks me up... even when I'm sober.
