Book Description

For the last two years, to spare her friend Frank from some of pop culture's weirdest atrocities, writer Liz Shannon Miller (G4's "Attack of the Show") has been catching him up on the movies, television and books he's missed: Stuff every person ought to know about, but maybe not actually experience for themselves.

This edition, with a foreword by the eponymous Frank Smith, contains 20 of "Liz Tells Frank"'s most popular installments (including "Batman and Robin," "Night of the Living Dead," "Showgirls" and "Left Behind") -- plus five book-exclusive entries covering everything from Oscar-nominated "The Help" to Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse" to the 2002 "Rollerball" remake.

From the fond nostalgia of "Sweet Valley High" to the soul-killing badness of "Madea's Family Reunion", "Liz Tells Frank What Happened In..." is an epic tour though entertainment's highs and lows.

(Mostly the lows. Liz may never recover from "Zardoz".)

5.0 out of 5 stars Liz Tells Frank is hilarious! September 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you love Mystery Science Theater 3000, you'll love Liz Tells Frank. It's very reminiscent of Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese except LTF covers multiple media and is less derisive, with more heart, while still being just as funny and even more insightful. Can't recommend it enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it alone for Showgirls October 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been reading these on her blog for awhile now, and they are always entertaining. My favorite will always be Showgirls, however. It made me laugh so hard, that hat I been drinking milk, it would have squirted out my nose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and Entertaining! October 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not the type of person to follow blogs; just keeping up with Facebook is hard enough. And yet I find myself regularly visiting the Liz Tells Frank blog for a weekly dose of witticism. And this book is a perfect companion! It's sort of a "best-of" of the blog, plus lots of new entries that make it a great investment even for long-time fans (like me). If you're in the mood to laugh (and catch up on all those pop-culture items you've missed out on), this is the book to pick up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific view of pop culture October 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is like Cliff's Notes for pop culture. Funny, irreverent and informative, I stayed up way past my bedtime laughing, and saying to myself "Just one more chapter" and then all of a sudden, it was 3:00 am and I was sorry the book had ended. I immediately downloaded the second book, and set aside the next evening to read the second book. I then told all my friends about this book, which is something I almost never do - I hope Frank appreciates Liz!

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't know I needed this until I read it August 4, 2013
By Angela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like reading plot summaries particularly snarky ones but it wasn't something I gave much thought. I was unaware this blog existed but I think it might be my favorite blog now. The individual summaries were rather short but it made it a good book to read for a minute or two

5.0 out of 5 stars A public service we can all benefit from May 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Full disclosure: I am friends with Liz. I am friends with Frank. Frank is real. I am also real. Liz may or may not be real.

With that out of the way, let me just say that this is a hugely entertaining compilation of pop-culture wanderings through movies, TV, books, and more (maybe not actually more. Maybe just movies, TV, and books). You know when you have a friend that's in a band or something, and you have to go to their show, and there's always that chance that their band isn't any good and you have to lie to them? Well, this book is NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL! I laughed many many times throughout. I shared in Liz's pain. I nodded sagely at the wisdom of her analysis. I pictured Frank nodding sagely, and also laughing. Frank has a much better laugh than I do.

If you're curious about any of the titles chronicled within, this book will save you some time, in a terribly lazy Cliff's Notes sort of way. If you are very familiar with any of the titles chronicled within, you'll still have a damn good time. If you just like schadenfreude, then this is definitely the book for you! Make Liz's misfortune your great success, today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! January 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When I got to the end of Liz Tells Frank, I was disappointed--because there wasn't more to read. This book is like sitting with your funniest friends, watching a bad movie, but having fun laughing over just how, and in what ways, it sucks. I hope there will be a "sequel" because it's good to be saved from watching bad media, and laugh while reading about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Second November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book entertained every second I was reading it. If you enjoy the asinine qualities of pop culture, this is the book for you.
