Above Average MST3K, Not A Bad Flick Either (by bad flick standards)
17 January 2007 | by (Fahaheel, Kuwait) – See all my reviews

This movie is a solid 6 in my book. I watched it as an MST3K episode but could have easily been entertained by it on it's own. I like heist movies and as easily as I knew this one was doomed to failure, I actually was getting nervous for this guy. Throw in a very bad slut, so really stupid greasers (well I guess most greasers are really stupid), and the finishing touch is the safe-cracker with class who I'm pretty sure was the shyster in the Trouble With Tribbles episode of Star Trek (one of the best loved ST TOS episodes ever) and its definitely a 6 rated low budget noir. Hey, Beast of Yucca Flats an under 2 rated movie? Absolutely, but High School Big Shot deserves much higher. The MST3K treatment almost does it a disservice, almost. There are some pretty good one liners to use in this, the MST3K boys did miss some good really spot on jokes but they passed because they are so PC and hold back from things like gay cracks, like in the beginning when the greaser tucks Marv's shirt in his pants (maybe too close to home for them?). High School Big Shot, I rate 6 out of 10, if you like noir see it first without the commentary. As a MST3K episode its one of the above average episodes, comes with a funny bread salesman short before it.
