The Meateater is the best "Worst" film ever!
25 May 2004 | by aandjmacSee all my reviews

I love this movie because it is so bad! The reason meat is mentioned or shown so often, is because Derek ran out of money and found money to finish the movie available from the California Pork Board! Oh, I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner! Watch closely during the family sing along, notice that the family car is on the street but it is not actually going anywhere?! And is it just me or was Dianne Davis, Mother trying to make out with a rather young Gary Dean, Son. And how many ladies let a dirty old man stare at them all the time? It is hard to believe, but three of these actors went on to bigger things! The actor who played Mr. Knuckle Real Estate Agent,starred in Ghostbusters! Remember the elevator? Irving Wassermann "Pa" starred in Roseanne! And Scott McGinnis "Necking Boy" Starred as Mr. Adventure in Star Trek III: The Search For Spock! But he was at his very best in Joysticks a.k.a. Video Madness! Why can't we get classics like this on DVD?!
