This is the story of Melvin, the Tromaville Health Club mop boy, who inadvertently and naively trusts the hedonistic, contemptuous and vain health club members, to the point of accidentally ending up in a vat of toxic waste. The devastating results then have a transmogrification effect, his alter ego is released, and the Toxic Avenger is born, to deadly and comical results. The local mop boy is now the local Superhero, the saviour of corruption, thuggish bullies and indifference. Troma classic with good make-up effects and stunts, a pleasant surprise indeed. Written by

[about Melvin, who is clumsily mopping]
Would you take a look at that fucking guy? The mop boy. Can't even mop right!
He's SO stupid!
He's always got that shit-eatin' grin on his face. What's he so happy about?
I HATE that mop boy.
[as Melvin approaches]
I think that creep's comin' over here!
Julie, you... uh, smell somethin'?
Ew! Pee-you! What's that stink?
G-Gee, t-that's funny, I don't smell nothin'.

My 10/10 rating assumes that you like this movie before you've seen it. "The Toxic Avenger" is the ultimate movie for anyone into 1980s schlock. No doubt it was intended mainly for teenage boys (I lost track of how many naked women there were here). But overall, it's great to see a movie never self-conscious or anything like that (I mean, come on, look at that ridiculous outfit that the title character wears); the movie's really gross and proud of it. Troma must still be proud of this flick.
Oh, and of course Marisa Tomei has a small appearance in the movie. Who ever would have guessed that one of the people starring in this would later win an Oscar?
