Did You Know?


In The Basement of Death, there are two board games that fall off the shelves: the Family Ties board game and The Addams Family board game. Marc Price (Michael) played Irwin 'Skippy' Handelman on '"Family Ties" (1982)', and John Astin (Professor Mortimer Gangreen) played Gomez Addams on _"The Addams Family" (1964)_. See more »


Although a comical disclaimer within the end credits states, "The Producers wish to point out that there is no King of France and there has not been since the French Revolution of 1789," indeed several monarchs ruled France during much of the nineteenth century. See more »


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.

Bizarre, silly, illogical yet nice and playful movie
9 November 2011 | by (Prague) – See all my reviews

I have expected a lot worse because of very low ranking on IMDb. Yes, this movie is definitely not a gem, but it is funny in a playful way. The jokes are mostly mild, I was not laughing aloud but I have definitely smiled for the most of the movie. At least this comedy is not filled with obscene jokes, farting and vomiting as is typical for low ranking comedies these days. So you can watch this movie with your kids as well.

The best part is probably "the war with the tomatoes" sequence. But other scenes are actually very good as well (the stories of the tourists suffering the endless tour in the castle). There is a ton of different books and movies being parodied in the movie, yet it is surprisingly not offensive towards the French too much. There is some baguette-waving and such jokes but fun is made at the expense of American school system as well. The "US school map" of Europe is really hilarious, I would like to buy one!

Not really great but definitely not waste of time either. Just a bit of moderate silly fun.
