I've always thought that the Mystery Science Theater team is at its peak when Joel and the 'bots get the chance to riff on instructional short films. Honestly, these little films seem to have been made for the sole purpose of a man and two robots riffing them. They're made to be laughed at, wallowing in bad acting, annoying narrators and dated messages ("A Date with Your Family" is the prime example of idiotic preaching).

Appreciating Your Parents isn't half bad, actually. Sure, the acting is bad and it's not very entertaining, but the message is actually a good one: we should appreciate each other more and help each other out when we get the chance. Joel, Crow and Tom have a field day with it, but I feel that this movie, like "I Accuse my Parents", really doesn't deserve to be looked down upon. I'll give this short 4 out of 10.
