Ripe for Mystery Science Theater 3000
11 December 1998 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although Uncle Sam isn't the worst movie I've ever seen (Cycle Vixens holds that honor), it is the most enjoyable extremely bad movie I've ever seen. It offers endless opportunities to heckle and throws down the gauntlet to all other bad movies everywhere. Enjoy!
