Trivia

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 »

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.

I'm ashamed to say I liked it
14 November 2002 | by (hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

The movie is more 80's than 90's. There are two un-P.C. moments that might fly today, but certainly would not have worked in the mid-90's at the height of political correctness. One is Japanese tourists with cameras (think "Gremlins 2") and the other is more mean when two "fruits" (literally watermelons wearing hats) are told to leave the vegetable cafe because it is not that kind of place. I only object to that scene because the movie is aimed at children who are easily influenced.

I suppose picking on the French is not P.C. either.

There is real stupid humor throughout the film, much of it involving the improper use of the French language, stupid accents, and the presence of berets and baguettes. Most of the jokes will make you say "Oh man, that's dumb..", but you will be smiling when you say it. Besides who does not want to see a heavy metal band of tomatoes play a rap/rock song? Fuzzy Tomatoe's stupidity and silly little voice will make you like him as well.

The tomatoes look pretty cool as they bounce and move their eyes and mouths. Not super-sophisticated puppets, but not shoddy either.

A fun movie. Pretty innocent. If you like innocent horror parody comedies see "Saturday the 14th" next.
