I really can't recommend this film enough to those of you who enjoy beautifully written, meticulously acted and stunningly visual films. The animatronics took my breath away as did the rewarding and at times challenging script. Valerie Vomit's own sub-plot is heart wrenching to say the least, as she struggles with her nauseous disposition only to overcome her weakness in the penultimate scene which was a real bittersweet moment of elation and regret. We follow these characters as they progress from prisoners to free citizens and I think this is the most satisfying of heroic transformations I have ever witnessed on film. Buy this movie.

Films can come from many inspirations and sources. There are novels, plays, true stories, comic-books, video games and...trading cards? The woefully mis-handled Mars Attacks was based on a brilliant trading card series and it was hardly high art. A lower-lever trading card such as the Garbage Pail Kids is hardly likely to make great cinema. If this sort of thing cannot appeal to you (I have broad tastes and I'm a bit too understanding of flawed films) then don't even bother watching.

I wanted to rent this movie when I was a kid but my grandmother (who always evaluated the videos first) thought it looked quite inappropriate (I subsequently went for Rambo: First Blood Part II, which she thought was more fitting for a 7-year-old). Since it's one and only incarnation on video tape in the late-80s (theatrical prints promptly vanished) this film has been totally non-existant. Luckily (if you like this sort of thing) MGM bought the rights, found a dusty print and spruced it up to give us a brand new digital incarnation of The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. With erm...garbage like this getting a DVD release I must ask where the hell is Bigfoot and Howard the Duck?

Direcor Rodney Amateau (a rather fitting-sounding surname) could have made this an animated movie (eg Care Bears) but no, he actually had the audacity and nerve to attempt it in live action. Note how I said 'attempt' and not 'succeed'.

The animatronics are just horrible. Where is Jim Henson when you need him? So bad is the puppetry that the kids cannot even close their mouths and no one even bothered to lip-sync the dialogue. They are also disgusting beyond reason (as one who is familiar with the trading cards would expect).

This movie is so corny I couldn't watch more than 30 minutes of it. Yet another piece of childhood that was a whole lot better in memory! Glad I only spent $4 on it, sorry I was anxious looking for it the whole 3 weeks it took to get to me!

One of my favorite movies from my childhood...this movie is great, cool, funny and gross! what just about every boy enjoys ! I collected the cards of the same name, and the special effects people nailed the costumes perfectly! All fathers that grew up during this era should watch this with their kids!!!

Something like "The Garbage Pail Kids Movie" makes it fruitless to complain for obvious reasons. If the name sounds like crap, and the film looks like crap, then it is, by definition, crap. But do I deserve to criticize the movie so foully when its identity is being foul? That's like complaining about a gnome for being short, Satan for being evil, or Robin Williams for being hyperactive. But does that mean I should give a pass and not bother getting bent over shape by its putridness? Not exactly.

I like to recall a movie that not many have seen. It's called Freaked, which is about freaks, and its impetus is to freak people out. However, that isn't all there is with that film, as it had hysterical jokes that are outside its shock value. The freaks are unique with compelling personalities about them, some have a good sense of wit, and few even have unpredictably funny backstories; plus, it has Keanu Reeves as a werewolf. It's a good cult classic, very enjoyable, and people should give this movie a chance. But shameless recommendation aside, the point is you can look like a duck and talk like a duck, but that doesn't necessarily mean you should act like a duck; in this movie, all the ugly ducklings did is keep quacking in hopes of being swans.

The film's about Dodger, your typical bullied wuss, who works at an antiqued store owned by Cpt. Manzini, a magician of endless proverbs...and hardly did any magic besides magically turning on a laundry machine. Manzini warned Dodger about not opening what he called 'Pandora's Pail', but the bullies taught him a lesson for being a protagonist and accidentally knocked the magical pail down, letting loose the abortions from the Cabbage Patch nursery.
