Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The fourth Medved brothers "fabled fiascos" of moviedom book, this lists 200 "turkey titles," divided into 23 categories, including "The Most Unbearable Bear Movie" (Prophecy and "The Least Classy Use of Classical Music in Movie History" (The Brain Eaters. The humor in this arch, misanthropic volume evaporates as the extent of the authors' lack of serious research becomes apparent. For example, the Medveds erroneously perpetuate the myth that viewers of The Tingler in 1959 sat in "theater seats wired for mild electric shocks" when in truth buzzers beneath selected seats produced nothing more than slight vibrations. This is only a trivia book in disguise; when the Medveds talk turkey, expect hash.

Besides finding out new movie titles to look for, the authors offer their funny commentary backed by research and interviews with those involved with the films featured. The only bad thing about the book is that it turned out to be the last the Medved Brothers would do on bad movies, a subject matter they practically invented back in the 1970s.

This book and its prequel (GOLDEN TURKEY AWARDS) is really a primer in bad movies...as well as a great book of humor. Often, it is hard to believe that human beings actually made some of the movies described here...but it's all real.
The Medveds write in such an entertaining manner that you feel as though you've seen the movie (or at least picked up on its tone and key plot points)without having to put yourself through the agony of sitting through some of these!! It's a book I turn to over and over because it's so entertaining. And I have watched many a movie based on its recommendation. And not once have the Brothers Medved been wrong. These turkeys ARE turkeys!!!
Hilarious, fast-moving and well-written...with fun photos. Don't miss it!!

I laugh every time I read this irreverant look at bad movies from Hollywood's past. A highly recommended installment in the "Golden Turkey" series of books that take the reader on a tour of Hollywood's clunkers, misfires and Grade Z epics. I wish the authors would do an updated version including the years since these were published.
