From the makers of the highly successful cult classic TV series comes Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - one of the most outrageous, most irreverent, and most hilarious big-screen spoofs ever! A mad scientist, in his quest for world domination, concocts a diabolical scheme to subject the human race to the worst movie ever made: 1955's This Island Earth. It's up to one test subject's quick wit, sharp sense of humor, and utter intolerance for cinematic garbage to foil the plans of the scientist and to save the Earth. Experience the hijinks and low jabs of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - where the worse the movie is, the better time you'll have!
The cult television show (in which a hapless space explorer and his robot pals are forced to watch and deliver a hilarious running commentary on bad movies) makes a successful transition to the big screen as Mike and the 'bots lay waste to the '50s sci-fi yarn This Island Earth (a painfully stiff would-be epic that's actually a cut above the usual MST3K fare). While ardent fans may be a little miffed that more advantage isn't taken of the expanded theatrical venue (aside from a tad more scatological humor than usual, the content here would fit in comfortably as a regular episode of the series), the nonstop, hyper-literate salvo of comedy riffs that run the gamut from references to Tommy Chong's backyard to Yes album covers more than make up for any conceptual complacency. Be prepared to laugh till it aches. --Andrew Wright

sense of humor I guess. Read more
Make no mistake - this is an acquired taste. Not for everyone. But if you like this brand of humor, and especially if you've seen any of the original series, then this is great. Read morePublished 3 months ago by C. A. Coshow Jr.

|MST3K: The Movie DVD extras?||
MST3Kinfo.com reports that the only extra will be the MST Movie's trailer. Rather depressing, since there's at least one alternate ending out there (with Forrester being attacked by that man-ant creature from T.I.S.), and reportedly several versions with different rifftracks were filmed before...

because the buyers know longtime,hardcore fans like ME would be shelling out that much to get it!
because the movie either got deleted or the production company just stop pressing it!

I don't know what you "collect," but your ignorance regarding the M.O. of most major home video distributors is mind-boggling.
