it doesn't seem like cheating once Mike, Servo and Crow watch it
18 May 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Another "educational" film from the "Duck and Cover" age, in this case focusing on a student who copies from a classmate's paper. "Cheating" is only memorable because on "MST3K", Dr. Forrester made Mike, Servo and Crow watch it before he showed them "The Wild World of Batwoman". This leads Crow to copy something off of Gypsy's paper, so Mike and Servo do to Crow what the people in the short film do to the student.

Thank God that we have "MST3K" to rip at these boring movies. If anything, this movie alone is enough to make anyone want to cheat on a test. Dreadful.

So what would I do? Trash this movie a little more.
