Editorial Reviews

During the Swing Parade craze of the 1940s, it was hard to turn your head without encountering a Swing Parade. With the popularity of Swing Parades soaring, a full length motion picture was inevitable. Unfortunately, the film we got was clearly rushed out to capitalize on the Swing Parade fad. How can we tell? There doesn't appear to be a single damn Swing Parade in the whole movie!

Instead, we get the Three Stooges, who wouldn't know a Swing Parade if it bit them on the...Perhaps we're overreacting here. After all, a movie with mannish landlords, songs about blind mules, and Larry must be pretty ripe for mockery. And if it's called Swing Parade but does not feature any actual Swing Parades, then all the better! Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of RiffTrax.com and Mystery Science Theater 3000 make no false claims: They provide no Swing Parades, only hilarious commentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars these guys are funny June 18, 2009
did you ever want to get in the heads of the 3 stooges?
well, mike, bill and kevin try:
curly's a shaved ape, moe is dangerously bi-polar and larry is in the middle. but he's also fine.

plot alert: no one gets killed in this film, but i think a mule does go blind.
if you like great musicals with excellent choreography, than this is not your film.and if you want to see the 3 stooges at their best, again this is not your movie.
however, if you enjoyed 'mst3000'(imo, the best tv in the history of tv)
than give this, and all the rest of these rifftrax a look see.
hey, they're funnier than 99% of what's on the 'boob toob.'

4.0 out of 5 stars As close as you can get to new MST3K April 13, 2010

I've had more than my share of frustrations trying to enjoy Rifftrax. I love the idea in general. The MST3K crew finally gets the chance to riff on blockbuster films instead of "cheesy movies - the worst we can find" and it's what fans of the show have craved for 20 years. The way it works is, you download the Rifftrax file containing the running commentary, and then play it while watching the actual movie. You don't get to see your favorite bots with Mike or Joel at the bottom of the screen, but you DO get all the humor that the Best Brains team is famous for. They even bring in guests like "Weird Al" Yankovic to join in the fun. Sadly, only about half of the Rifftrax files work for me. If you don't have the exact edition of the original movie, it just won't work. As a result, I was able to enjoy their treatment of "Dirty Dancing," but try as I might, the rifftrax file of "Jurassic Park" will play, but the movie itself freezes at the title screen because my version of the film simply won't cooperate with the additional audio.

Well, here is a solution of sorts. Mike Nelson and crew have begun releasing some of the older movies and shorts as Rifftrax DVDs! I'm hoping some of the bigger studios come to realize that this is an excellent way to get some additional mileage out of their catalog titles and allow the Rifftrax team to include titles like the SPider Man films and The Jurassic Park movies in with future releases. I'd be willing to drop a bit more cash so Rifftrax can pay royalty and licensing fees to the giant studios in order to include them in the series.

But on to Swing Parade! The DVD gives you the option of watching the film with or without the Rifftrax treatment.

4.0 out of 5 stars An odd choice, but I like it! September 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've not seen every episode of MST3k, but I'm fairly sure they never did a 1940's swing musical-comedy before, so this is a first for the riffing game.

The movie is about a woman being kicked out of her apartment, who goes to sing at a club, or something... god, I don't actually know. The plot seems secondary as the movie is really there to show you some bizzare musical performances, the 3 stooges, and a kid who makes strange sound effects. As a long time 3 Stooges fan (not to mention a fan of just the Stooges, go Iggy!) it was kinda a letdown to see that the Stooges are not all over the place in this film, they're in more of a supporting role. That said, the goofy songs, outdated smarmy comedy, and the parts that DO have the stooges in it provide plenty of fuel for Mike and Co.

It makes for a rather strong entry in the RiffTrax catalogue. The song about the blind mule towards the beginning had me rolling, partly because they just... kept... going. So funny. See it for yourselves.
