When Chad is escaping from Gangreen's house, the "Rambo Tomatoes" are shooting at him with their automatic weapons, but flashes come out the barrel of only one weapon. The other is being shaken as though it were firing, but no flash comes out the barrel of the weapon. See more »
They are gardeners and carpenters, they are not tomato men.

The credits display in the opposite order than what is standard in the movie industry. Smaller contributors such as stage hands and supporting crew are listed first whereas the main cast aren't mentioned until the very end. Even the musicians are mentioned before the cast, appearing just before the mid-point, rather than near the end like in most movies. See more »
In the late 80s when sequels were being put out at an incredible rate, this little film called "Return of the Killer Tomatoes" was released. It definately ranks among the best comedy sequels I've ever seen. Possibly the funniest sequel to this genre next to "Gremlins 2"
The film is the sequel to the spoof of disaster flicks "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" that bombed heavily upon release. This film pokes fun at the low-budgets and box-office failures of both films but tends to make more of a mockery of the first film. It reuses old footage, makes fun of the actors/lines from the first film and has a plot thats almost a complete turnabout from the first one. There are no giant growling tomatoes or explosions or musical numbers or anything hi-tech in this film but you get tons of hot chicks, evil Tomatoes-turned-Rambo guys, catchy synthesizer music, the adorable little F.T.("fuzzy tomato") and probably the only time you'll see John Astin and George Clooney in the same movie.
I'd give it an 8/10!
