Mystery Science Theater 3000: Eegah

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Eegah (1993)

One of the most laughingly bad movies ever made, EEGAH, finally got the MST3K treatment and it certainly made for another good episode. If you're already familiar with the film it's about a pair of teenagers who discover a caveman and of course the caveman falls in love with the woman. What happens throughout is perfect material for such a show.

As I've said several times, I really can't call myself a "fan" of this show but I do enjoy watching an episode ever so often. I usually pick out movies that I'm used to and know quite well like this one. For the most part this is another very funny episode thanks in large part to the film itself being great material. Arch Hall, Jr. does a lot of singing in the picture and these moments get some of the best laughs including a line about his singing being able to keep the wolves away.

As is often the case, the jokes are hit and miss but there's no doubt that the majority of them hit the mark. There are some great ones dealing with Eegah's mute nature as well as some hilarious bits during the scene where the father is pretty much letting the caveman handle his daughter.

Episode: B+
