After a wave of reports of mysterious attacks involving people and pets being eaten by the traditionally docile fruit, a special government task force is set up to investigate the violent veggies and put a stop to their murderous spree. Included in this crack team are a lieutenant who never goes anywhere without his parachute, an underwater expert who's never out of his scuba gear, and a master of disguise who conceals his appearance by dressing as a black Adolf Hitler.Written by

Among "Every Screwball in San Diego County" was Ted Giannolis, a.k.a. The San Diego Chicken. This contributor asked him a few years later, after he'd renamed his character "The Famous Chicken", if he'd ever gotten the tomato stains out of the chicken suit. See more »

The end credits of the director's cut features a "Where are they now?" update on David Miller, Sharon Taylor, Costa Dillon, "Rock" Peace, and a tomato. See more »
This is a wonderful movie if viewed in the light in which it was made. Light hearted, off the wall and delightfully derivative. A must for all "corny movie" buffs. If ever there was a movie to reflect the maker's dream, either good or bad, then this is it. Drawing from all genres, making use of "jingle" music and madcap visuals, this classic movie has long been derided as a world worst movie ever made. This is unfair, as it shows what can be done on a modest budget, with the makers' imagination and a sack-load of tongue-in-cheek gags. There is also the well held belief that this could be the worst vegetable movie ever made. However, there has always been confusion as to whether the tomato is actually a fruit.
