Trivia

Writers Harry and Michael Medved worked as consultants on this film, which was inspired by their books, "The Golden Turkey Awards" and "The Fifty Worst Films of All Time". The brothers were so incensed by their treatment by the film's producers (and the end result) that they devoted a small entry to it in their subsequent book, "The Hollywood Hall Of Shame".

It came from Hollywood features clips from some of the best b movies ever featuring;plan 9 from outer space,attack of the 50 foot woman,the killer shrews,glen or Glenda,son of Godzilla,the thing with two heads, Frankenstein meets the space monster,horror of party beach,and much more.but some of the movie clips shown are a list movies like day the earth stood still,war of the worlds,and the incredible shrinking man. hosted in segments by;Gilda radner,Dan ackroyd,john candy,and cheech and chong(they host getting high in the movies)its a fine hodgepodge of classic movie clips.it was put together very well and hopefully soon they will release this to DVD.i remember them showing this in place of Saturday night live once and they chopped it up.the getting high segment was missing of course and the racy clip from sunny side up with AL Jolson in black face was snipped.if you never seen this and you love Hollywood's b movies and some a list movies you will enjoy it came from Hollywood.and like john candy says in the beginning there's dirty parts too,not really its pg rated and there's no nude scenes.some adult language but thats it.bevare of the scene from glen or Glenda with bela Lugosi its a trip.some of the other films are i married a monster from outer space,mars needs women,amazing colossal man,cyclops,crawling eye,the manster,incredible melting man,attack of the mushroom people,Santa Claus vs the martians(with Pia zadora)beginning of the end,the giant claw,reefer madness,marijuana,and many others i didn't list.i recommend it came from Hollywood.its fun and its funny.10 out of 10.
