"It's my turf now!"
3 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this episode because of all the funny lines. The parts out of the theater were great too. Although it was very short, this is one of my favorite invention exchanges. It's just too funny to see Crow and Tom Servo dress up as Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank and vice versa! Frank is especially great as Tom Servo. I really like that chin puppet part too. It probably is funnier right side up. It was great to have Magic Voice with a whole segment to herself. She mostly disappeared in the later seasons. I also loved how Mike read a total of three letters at the end! How ironic Mike would claim George Lucas wrote one when he later said, "The Phantom Menace" was the worst movie of all time. Hey, two guys named Eric and that's my name!

The movie was preceded by the short "What About Juvenile Deliquency?" and it had some of the best short riffs EVER. I laughed like mad at, "Okay, come on! I'll take you both on!" with "How's Dad?" and "How'd you know?" followed by "He's always been my dad". These guys were so lame you had to laugh at them. I also loved the actual movie riffing. The part that really had me in stitches was when she said, "She ate it!" with the riff, "I wanted it!". Another great one was, "She's floating slowly to hear death". It's too easy to make fun of a movie about a cat switching brains with a person. ****
