Goofs

Professor Gangrene: Oh cut it out! I know you're only hanging around here until something opens up in the TV news field, but do you know how embarrassing it is that a villain of MY stature has an assistant that looks like you?

Crazy Credits

As the end credits start and Matt and his tomato girlfriends are running to the beach, the credits and song say "Big Breasted Tomatoes Go To The Beach And Take Their Tops Off". Then the music stops and an old lady comes up and says "Hold it right there. Where do you think you're going? My son and a lot of other people worked hard on this film, so you're going to sit right there and watch these end credits." See more »

The girl of my dreams is a vegetable...
13 May 2002 | by maxshreckSee all my reviews

I love this movie!! Judge me if you will, but I stand by my opinion. Forget Mars Attacks, THIS is the best B-movie spoof made in a long time. I haven't seen the original (though plenty of supposed footage from the first one is spliced into this film as part of the joke, much in the same way as Bride of Frankenstein, 1935), but from what I can gather from reviews, this is better.

The film constantly makes fun of its low budget with several actors playing multiple parts, and the product-placement scene in the Pizza Place precedes the one in Wayne's World by years and is much, much funnier. The before-he-was-famous Clooney is hilarious, and there's a nice touch having John Astin (who has already spoofed light horror in the original Addams Family) play Professor Gangrene.

The film is simply a silly delight to watch, so I recommend you get your hands on it as soon as possible!
