Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 04/19/1996
"...Insults, witticisms and observational humor ranging from sophomoric to sophisticated....Hilariously perfect aim..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
Entertainment Weekly - 04/26/1996
"...More than its share of gonzo laughs..." -- Rating: B+
Variety - 04/22/1996
"...Infectiously funny....Lotsa laughs....An atmosphere of mild lunacy..."

Product Description:

This feature version of the irreverent TV series about a man on a spaceship who's forced to watch bad movies with his robot pals skewers the would-be 1950s classic THIS ISLAND EARTH. While admiring the film's content (or lack thereof), the earthling and his robot-puppet pals make various funny comments throughout.

Plot Synopsis:

This film follows the same premise of the cable TV series it's based on: a man named Mike Nelson, along with two witty robots, is held captive in outer space by mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester. As an experiment, Forrester subjects them to a barrage of horrible, "cheesy movies". Nelson and the bots proceed to make fun and crack wise at virtually everything that happens in the film, from the opening to closing credits.
In this big-screen version, the film lampooned by the gang is 1955's "This Island Earth", a campy, no-budget film about earthlings who are kidnapped by aliens.
But will Mike and his metallic buddies ever find a way to escape from the demented Forrester'

  • The television show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" was created in Minneapolis in 1988 by its original star, Joel Hodgson. The low-budget show was later picked up by neophyte cable network Comedy Central, where it developed a strong cult following, called "Misties". At the height of its popularity, Hodgson left the show, and was replaced by Michael Nelson, a writer and sometime actor on the series. A few years later, however, viewership declined, and the show became less and less prominent on Comedy Central. Weeks before the film version opened, the channel cancelled "MST 3K". However, it was later picked up for a new season of shows by the Sci-Fi Channel.
