The Artful Dodger - An Interview With Actor Mackenzie Astin (2015)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This twenty-six minute interview with actor Mackenzie Astin is about as good as you could hope for as the actor revisits his making of THE GARBAGE PAIL KIDS. He starts off talking about how he thought this was just going to be the greatest movie and then he shares his parent's thoughts on the screenplay as their opinions were quite different. From here he talks about working with various actors in the film, what it was like working with all the practical effects and he even talks about dating one of his co-stars and their eventual break-up. If you're a fan of Astin or of the film in question then you'll certainly love this featurette as there's really nothing the actor doesn't get into. He shares some terrific stories about the production but he also talks about the wide and extremely negative reaction that the film got. He even shares his thoughts on why the film is such a cult favorite to many today.
