Quotes

Michael: What am I worried about? I'm 22 years old, I'm backpacking through France... Life is wonderful. Oh, who am I kidding. Michael J. Fox is a major motion picture star and I'm making a Killer Tomatoes movie, part 4!. What am I worried about? I'm making a movie. I'm filming in France. I've got a piece of the merchandising! It beats dinner theater.

We're really scraping the bottom here...
27 August 2004 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I'm one of those people who enjoy bad movies. I rent them on a weekend and give in to the insanity of terrible cinema. At this point, I have respect for every single bad movie I have seen in the past because I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE! EVERY MOVIE I SEE KEEPS GETTING WORSE AND WORSE! I've have done reviews of films like A Crack in the Floor and Campfire Stories but I am 100% confident that they will seem like Tolstoy compared to this.

The plot is jaw dropping. A young man and his girlfriend try to unravel a mystery and a daring rescue of TJ, (or something like that, who cares) a rock star tomato who is kidnapped by an evil professor and his vegetable minions who desire the rise of the new king of France and complete world domination. The plot is clearly crafted by Shakespeare himself!

While some might argue that this film is trying to be intensionally funny, the film makers obviously diddn't care if the film was of any kind of real quality. And by extension, neither was the director when the camera man CLEARLY TRIPS OVER THE STAIRS WHILE FILMING. The plot is clearly a kind of parody from the previous tomato films but the level of absurdity still forced me to take 5 minute breaks every 15 minutes.

I've sacrificed 2 hours of my life that I will never ever get back. I have never seen tomatoes this ugly, a plot this terrible, or jokes this awful. God speed.

Grade: 1/10
