As Chad talks to the Fuzzy Tomato, the clock says 1:52 am. The scene cuts to a close-up of the Fuzzy Tomato, and the clock says 2:10 am. When the camera moves back to Chad, the clock says 1:53 am. The very end of the scene, the clock says 2:13 am. See more »
They are gardeners and carpenters, they are not tomato men.

As the end credits start and Matt and his tomato girlfriends are running to the beach, the credits and song say "Big Breasted Tomatoes Go To The Beach And Take Their Tops Off". Then the music stops and an old lady comes up and says "Hold it right there. Where do you think you're going? My grandson and a lot of other people worked hard on this film, so you're going to sit right there and watch these end credits." See more »
Being a huge b-movie fan, I had to see this movie. It is VERY funny and entertaining and still a b-movie even with a larger budget, but the only footage of tomatoes moving and attacking people (the best part of the original) is taken from the original "attack" film. Here instead we got tomatoes that look exactly like people. But when you buy an "attack of the killer tomatoes" movie that shows a giant killer tomato attacking on the cover, you expect to see a giant killer tomato attacking in the movie! John Astin as Gangreen was funny, but I like the original movie's reason for tomato attacks. In the original, man altered tomatoes to make them better but accidently gave them the ability to grow and attack people.
In this movie that is all ignored and now the killer tomatoes were made by a evil professor in his basement.
I think the original plot AND movie are much better, but this films is still very funny in it's own way. And I am surprised it got away with many of the raunchy jokes while staying PG.
Recommended if you want to laugh.
