So, what makes up this particular experiment?

* Go-go dancers.
* Drug dealing.
* Abusive fathers/boyfriends.
* A hippie wannabe draft dodger.

It's almost as though they wanted to make one of those social depravity cautionary tales of the 1950s, but failed miserably and just used it as a cover to show pretty women in Drill Thrall costumes dancing to particularly lame rock-n'-roll. Needless to say, Mike and the Bots take full advantage of this.

Also, Crow explores his existence as a sexual being through the medium of go-go dancing, and Mike responds accordingly.

"Girl in Gold Boots" is the perfect type of movie for MST3k. Boring, disjointed, many different plots, and really bad acting. Mike and the 'bots do a great job of tearing this one apart. The only problem is that it's not a sci-fi flic but just an ordinary bad film about nothing.
They're at their best on a Sci-fi movie.

This episode features a tale about the seedy underside of go-go dancing in the late 60's, populated by scruffy, counter-culture hipsters and their eye-candy, female counterparts. Although slightly darker than the usual MST3K fare, "Girl in Gold Boots" does provide some great material for riffing in the form of the embarrassingly dated dance techniques, two over-the-top villains (one that's sort of a Casey Kasem with a speech impediment), a hero named "Critter" and OMG... when a strung out go-go dancer laments over losing her "pretty mind". This episode also had one of the most absolutely hilarious skits where Mike does a parody of Critter's folksy love song while Servo hijacks the sentimental, memory montage insert to warn that the satellite is on fire.

Above average episode with a nice rewatchability factor and one you'll probably want to add to your collection. :o)

As MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie format, I like to review each part of the episode as a good or bad part can save or ruin the entire episode.

The movie: For once, an MST3k film title that actually makes sense! Yes this is a movie about a girl who go-go dances in gold boots. She loves to go-go dance - so be prepared for spontaneous dancing (the best is the go-go dancing on the beach to Critter's (don't ask) lame folk song). This movie is similar to that "Burlesque" movie with Cher and Xtina - except with better acting, dancing, and a story line. It has people magically appearing, the world's worst brother, and is actually a documentary about the slimy underground of go-go dancing. Yes, this is one of those movies that you would watch anyway (with your jaw dropped in astonishment).

Segments: Besides seeing Crows legs, none of the segments were that good. Every joke was predictable.

Riffs: Once the guys stop drooling over the go-go girls dancing in the opening 10 minute scene, the riffs are constant and funny - one of the rare ones where the riffs last until the very end.

Overall: The movie alone would warrant 3 stars. The constant and funny riffs brings it up to 4. If only there were some good segments, this one would have been a top 5 MST3k classic. Still it is one of the better episodes and I do highly recommend watching.

One of my favorite episodes. The movie is poo, but Mike and the 'Bots made it fun. I loved Crow's little dance number.
