Oh god. Most of this film was terrible to begin with but that final joke at the end just made me feel filthy, it was in such poor taste. I have no plans to rewatch this one any time soon.

That opening mud wrestling/dancing sequence is hysterical. So many riffs coming so fast. I was crying. It's a pupa trying to emerge! I also really liked when Frank used a remote to lower the volume of the TV that was sitting on his stomach! Can't much lazier than that!

What's up with Bert I. Gordon's creepy preoccupation with filming teenagers making-out? Every freakin' movie he pads the film with like 15 minutes of kissing..

This has got to be the millionth time I've watched this episode and I STILL nearly got teary eyed at the thought of Frank leaving.

Just because they're big doesn't mean shooting them won't work. Oh for dumb.

Was it wrong to kind of root for the Beau Bridges? I think I may be saying that cause "Mike" in the movie was so irritating.

I love that they had some of the recurring jokes weather the host change.

I think B.I.G. only made this movie for the clothes-ripping scene and the subsequent breast imagery. For shame. Also: that peer pressuring scene where the teens eat the goo was... was... I don't even.

It would in fact require a greater than proportionate amount of energy to move at a proportionate rate of speed, so giant’s might actually move more slowly.

Kind of sad that they felt they had to put Johnny Crawford in a checked shirt and a cowboy hat to tap into his Rifleman history. Having him swag around with his hands in his jeans pockets and talk like a cow poke was ... sad.

I remember seeing this back in the 70's! I was only 8 years old, but I remember I thought it was funny. So glad to see it get the MST3K treatment. It totally needed it.

I was half expecting goofy trombone music to play all throughout this flick, especially at the painful ending joke.

Hey, so, did anyone ever figure out what the heck the H.G. Wells inspiration was supposed to be for this movie? And where it was supposed to be?

"They always seem to leave just one guard, sort of like a sentry." It's almost like a lookout, even, or one of those kind of watch-based guardians who protect things.

In your next party mix include Dr. Forrester’s up-tempo version of the haunting “Torgo Theme.” The kids will love it!

I think The Beau Brummels win for best band featured in an MST3K flick. Or maybe I just have a soft spot for Go-Go music. The group in Skydivers comes in at a close second.

Ever notice the one brunette giant who does absolutely nothing but hang out behind the other giants? I wonder what the story was with that.

This movie has some of the biggest plot holes in all of MST3K; what's the deal with "Genius" biking out to the park before he observed the effects of his concoction? How are the giants making sure nobody escaped the town if all they do is hang out in the theater? How does "Untie our leader or I'll leave this girl on the roof of this building, such that getting her down will be a mild inconvenience" serve as an effective form of extortion?

Anybody else notice that Tommy Kirk is a complete dick? He could have just told Beau's airhead girlfriend: "No. I'm NOT going to show you where the secret formula is hidden, strange blonde woman" Instead, he makes out with her for like 5 minutes before finally blowing her off...With his girlfriend no more than maybe 20 feet away!

You suck, Tommy Kirk :(

I recognized a name in the credits, and decided to look it up on IMDB. Sure enough, that's THE Toni Basil in this film--Toni "Oh Mickey you're so fine" Basil...as a character named "Red". I had no clue she was that old! :)

God I hated that those giant douchebags got no real comeuppance. Terrorize and entire community, and no jail time or town-wide public beatdown? But Mike and the bots made it go down a little easier.

Also, love the double meaning of the Frank Song. RIP Zappa.

Aww, that Frank song gets me every time, you really feel the emotions in it for Zappa...as well as TV's Frank of course. Now it's gonna be stuck in my head the rest of the night. "Let me be frank about Frank..." lol
