Product Description

They thought nothing on earth could come between them. Then, they hit an iceberg... Utilizing the latest in Thumbmation technology, writer/director, Steve Oedekerk (Ace Ventura II, The Nutty Professor, Jimmy Neutron, Patch Adams), weaves an all-thumb tale of adventure, romance and a large, cold, white object. Join young lovers Jake and Geranium as they climb aboard the "ship of dreams" to relive the historic events that actually played out on the maiden voyage of the Thumbtanic.

Amazon.com

"I’m the cuticle of the world!" Steve Oedekerk and his digitally enhanced digits board the fateful Thumbtanic (a.k.a. the ship of death) and square off against a really big ice cube. The old story of young, impulsive, and fairly stupid thumbs is spiced up with tortured visual puns (our hero wins his ticket in a pub wrestling match--thumb wrestling, of course), a giant spider invasion, and a happy ending. Oedekerk’s doofus humor and askew sight gags run a bit dry here--it lacks the lunatic inspiration of Thumb Wars and the gonzo goofiness of The Blair Thumb Project--but this third "thumbation" farce is kept above water by moments of absurd invention, oddball twists, and the most eccentric and inspired mutant thumb puppets to wiggle through a movie spoof. The DVD also features commentary by writer-producer Steve Oedekerk, storyboards, and trailers to other all-thumb parodies.--Sean Axmaker

Steve Oedekerk definitely has windmills in the splinters of his mind. But insanity isn't always a bad thing. Take Thumbtanic, for example. A hilarious send-up of blockbuster Hollywood movies is Steve's forte, and it is done here in style. Funny, fast paced, sight-gags a plenty, special effects, not-so-special effects, a cyclops, a giant marauding sp... well, shouldn't give too much away here.
Warning! As with any "Thumb-mation" epic, don't eat or drink during the viewing. You'll be laughing too hard to do that, anyway!

This movie was great and very funny, it's an excellent parody of Titanic and it is better than the Blair Thumb. The extras arent great there is only some trailers, commentary and storyboards. The review under this says "The additional "cast interviews" are a riot". There are no cast interviews, so dont think there will be when buying this. I think anyone with a sense of humour must get this movie now and will not be disappointed.

I'm a big fan of Steve O from Thumb Wars, Kung Pow, and the Blair Thumb. Of the thumb trilogy, I'd put Thumbtanic at #2 behind Thumb Wars. This is a good flick and well worth the purchase if you're a fan of wacky humor and talking thumbs with goofy facial expressions. The music video spoof had me rolling. I also own the original Titanic, which helps in getting all the parody elements. Definitely recommend this.

Thumbtanic is another clever little short that makes me laugh. It has humor, sarcasm, wit and innuendos that are not always for children. (But the kids will love it.) They are actually Thumbs that have faces that will be superimposed on them.
It parodies very well Jim Cameron's Titanic very well. And duplicates scenes and situations that are all twisted and almost perverted at times but stay true the basic sarcastic tone of the original film. The story is the ship sinks in a very funny way and the funniest part is the theme My Thumb In My Heart. (A Celine Dion parody.)
Steve Oedekerk (Best known for the Ace Ventura films, Jimmy Neutron, The Nutty Professor and recently Kung Pao.) is the writer, producer and creator of several of these O Entertainment productions - including Bat Thumb, Thumb Wars and The Blair Thumb Project. He is slapstick and sarcastic in nature and these Thumbs have personality and an almost weird charm about them.
This is funny, short and they are technically well done. The art direction, special effects and even the music - which I thing is clearly superior - all make this adventure fun and exciting. To those who like oddball humor this is a must DVD to own. The extras include hysterical commentaries, outtakes, previews and storyboards. Get This DVD. (8-13-02)

An elderly thumb named Geranium recalls her glory days aboard the Thumbtanic where she fell in love with the handsome Jake and then, you know, the ship sank.

This is, of course, not intended to be great cinema, but it is great thumb filmmaking. The photography is crisp and clever, the dialogue is genuinely funny, and there's even a giant tarantula (Hey James Cameron: Bet you wish you'd thought of that!).

This spoof has all the excitement of the real movie and they were wise to keep it to 26 minutes. And it kept a smile on my face the whole time. Good job, Steve Oedekerk!

Thumbtanic is one of about 5 film shorts with thumb actors. Out of the 2 that I have seen this is the one lacking in humor. I highly recommend you buy Thumb Wars instead. I got MANY more laughs out of it than I did Thumbtanic.

and if God is willing, I never WILL. But I did see 'Thumbtanic', a lovely picture of an event that never happened, about a ship, a giant piece of ice and a big spider. The hero, Jake, and his true love, Geranium, fall in love, do the nasty, learn to spit and escape the ship all in about 27 minutes. The rich thumbs make fun of the poor thumbs, the Captain is ALWAYS wearing a life-jacket and there are LOTS of funny accents. What MORE can you ask for?
If you liked this movie you will LOVE 'Thumb Wars'.

You know that feeling, when you laugh so hard that it hurts your abs and makes you gasp for air, like someone punched you in the stomach? Well Thumbtanic punched me straight in the gut within the first five minutes. I own it and have seen it no less than six times, and I find something to laugh at every single time. See it, see it my friend! Sometimes you must swallow your pride and step away from the AFI Top 100 list and just go for a fun movie that will take your breath away-- literally. Cheers!
