Bad Movie--Good Anecdote
9 August 1999 | by (Hicksville, NY) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, but seeing it did give me a funny story to tell people. Usually, before seeing a movie, I know quite a bit about it from reviews, etc. I decided one day to go out & see a movie that I knew nothing at all about, just as a kind of change of pace. And the movie I selected was "Here Come the Tigers". Was it a nature documentary? An environmental horror story? A jungle adventure? Who knew?? Well, as it turned out, it was nothing more than a cheap, vulgar rip-off of "The Bad News Bears" made by people who apparently saw nothing attractive in that film but the obscenities. So "Here Come the Tigers" is filled with "funny" scenes of children cursing and engaging in "hilarious" infantile hijinks. This movie was so awful that I was on the verge of leaving the theatre & the few other people who were enduring it with me were openly making fun of it. I was *really* *really* regretting the money I had just laid out for this junk (money being short supply for me back then). Just then, magic happened. One of the reels somehow got put on the projector wrong so that the film suddenly began running backwards!! Since most of the last part of the film concerned the dramatic "big game", scenes of backward baseball players making weird squeaky noises was hysterical. It took the theatre people about 15 or 20 minutes to notice what was going on and, since they weren't able to rectify it, everyone in the theatre was given their money back!!! So I may be one of the few people to have seen this movie to get any enjoyment out of it.
