MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE is out-of-this-world funny. The big screen version of the popular Comedy Central TV program brings together all of the familiar characters to lampoon 1950’s sci-fi movie THIS ISLAND EARTH. For those who don’t know, the premise involves Dr. Forrester who wants world domination. He kidnapped ordinary Mike Nelson to serve as a guinea pig for a mad experiment. Dr. Forrester subjects Mike week after week, to the worst, cheesiest movies ever made, but Mike retains his sanity by talking back to the screen. Throughout THIS ISLAND EARTH, Mike and his robot pals wisecrack about nearly every word or image on screen.
MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE is hardly any different than the TV show. The only difference is that sometimes Mike and friends slip out a word that can’t be used on television. Yet, this is rare and the comedy remains intact. The humor here is a laugh-a-minute dose of wit and puns. MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE is funnier if you understand popular culture because many of the jokes compare the events of the viewed movie to modern movies, TV shows or personalities. MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE says what we always wanted to say about bad movies but are afraid to do so.
