Goofs

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 »

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.

Funny in that Killer Tomato Sort of Way
25 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To all of you whom are calling this a horrible movie, get a clue. It wasn't made to compete in the Oscar run. It is pure schlock and silly, corny fun. A good laugh and just funny in a ridiculous way. Take it for what it's worth and don't over think it. Lots of fun. This is such a great franchise. I have seen interviews with many of the regular cast members and they don't take it seriously at all. Just good clean fun and silliness. I guess it doesn't take much to turn me on but I find them hysterical. L A U G H!!! If you can't laugh at them you need to relax and not take it so seriously. I love the stereotypes and the allusions to other age old stories. It must have been a lot of fun to work on.
