Storyline

After a wave of reports of mysterious attacks involving people and pets being eaten by the traditionally docile fruit, a special government task force is set up to investigate the violent veggies and put a stop to their murderous spree. Included in this crack team are a lieutenant who never goes anywhere without his parachute, an underwater expert who's never out of his scuba gear, and a master of disguise who conceals his appearance by dressing as a black Adolf Hitler. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Plenty of Tomato Sauce
3 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

Many have claimed this is the worst movie of all time. I would rather sit through this 100 times than watch 10 minutes of Titanic!! To rate this movie you must watch it for the way it was intended, pure unadulterated B-Grade movie garbage. Then you will find there is only one vote to give it,... 10/10
