Greatest B-movie comedy ever made
6 December 2002 | by (Marrero,Louisiana) – See all my reviews

Even though I've only recently saw this yesterday,it is most certainly the greatest B-movie comedy ever made,and the most important part of Killer Tomato history,since many characters here went on to be on the TV show,most of the characters from the first movie reappear only they're played by different actors with the exception of J.Stephen Peace as Chad Finletter,with the introduction of six new characters,Chad(Anthony Starke),Matt(George Clooney),Tara(Karen Mistal,later to be played by legendary voice actress Kath Soucie on the show),Professor Gangreen(John Astin),and FT as himself,the product placement gag precedes the one in Waynes World by 5 years,and it has one of the weirdest relationships since Splash,I haven't seen the first or the next 2 sequels,but I'm sure they're just as funny as this one,so take my advice and buy this at Best Buy today and request to Anchor Bay to release the other Killer Tomato movies on DVD
