One of their best!
14 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was really impressed with how relentlessly funny this episode was! It's mostly because you just have such a wonderfully stupid movie for the crew to watch! I guess if there's any downside, it's that none of the segments outside the theater were about the actual movie. It still ended up being amazing with those segments. This is one of the shortest times before going into the theater. I think it was less than five minutes! Anyway, the plot outside the theater features TV's Frank being fired and Dr. Forrester replacing him with Torgo. It's pretty weird considering that Frank would eventually leave with Torgo's help! This is the first time I heard a different song over the credits. You have to catch the final joke to get it (no stinger this time). I recognize most of the Frank clips as I've been binge watching the show obviously.

Of course, the actual movie was one of the most laughable movies they have ever had in the entire show. It's like you didn't even need them here. The movie is already funny! I think this movie may have intentionally been a comedy. The moments with the dog were great with, "Mein fuhrer! I can walk!" and the later, "I'm melting! Melting!". I also loved, "Roast spider! A leg for everyone!". It's not until the actual people grow that it gets gut bustingly hilarious. The best line before that was probably, "They never should have delayed the spaying" with the cat. I just loved "I'll harm you!" and they transform with stuff like, "I'm not wearing a bra!" or later with, "The disgraced cast of 'Terror Of Tiny Town' meet with the disgraced cast of 'Village Of The Giants'". It's so wonderful you just have to watch this to see it in its wonderful form. Probably in my Top 5 episodes of all time. ****
