You know, after watching this one a few times, I'm beginning to think that Coleman Francis didn't have a firm grasp of the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Coleman Francis can't drink coffee out of a soup can without spilling half of it down his shirt? Is that fine acting or just no money or time to waste on a retake?

Is there any semi-logical reason why Curly shot Justine's wife when she suggested they go back? Every time I watch this episode, I try to understand it, but I don't. They had said they were going straight. The car broke down. She suggested they go back. It makes sense. There's not much sense in trying to go on with a faulty car. So...let's shoot her? What? WHY?

I know they had to edit movies to fit the time-slot, but it seems like they edited out scenes to purposefully make the movies more confusing. Like from jumping from the cop telling them that Coleman Francis has a 5000 dollar bounty on his head to a scene beginning with them talking about how "they" give you 1000 bucks when you join and 1000 when it's over. No matter how bad of a movie this is, you know there was some lines cut between those two conversations.

I guess they were after Francis because they had to sit through The Beast of Yucca Flats.

Major bummer that my favorite joke wasn't recorded. At just before 1:01:42, the soundtrack plays the beginning of the background song, and Tom Servo sings, "Hello mudduh....fadduh."
I walk around singing that all the time. People think I'm nuts, but it just cracks me up to no end. Hopefully someone can submit a link to the complete recording, just to see that part.

How full of yourself do you have to be to write and direct a movie starring yourself in which you're a bad-ass like if Kurt Russell wrote Escape From New York. Then there's that shot focusing on the "Where will you spend eternity?" sign which would be pretentious in any movie but shows how seriously Coleman Francis took himself and his "movies". That's the funniest part about this whole movie. And Coleman Francis weights about 200 pounds my ass? Ha.

Okay, I like Joel better during the host segments sometimes. This film provides an example-the joke about Dr. Forester dying is stretched, even though you can basically get all the laughs out it in one, maybe two segments. They honestly didn't do anything with the "Mike is Carol Channing" joke, so it wasn't funny. They don't even really talk about the film, except to complain, "God, this is an awful film," which adds nothing since the whole point is that all of these films are awful.

I'd have had more fun if they'd made jokes directly relating to the plot like they did with Manos. They had Joel dress up in a hokey outfit, Mike Nelson cameo'd as Torgo, they made fun of all that filler from when they were driving around at the beginning. Here, they could have made fun of all those horrible jumpcuts, the terrible editing, or they could have had a whole segment where Crow attempts to explain the plot (which is non-existent until the last fifteen minutes).

This is an awful movie, the riffing is top notch, but the host segments do nothing for me at all.

Tom Servo started singing that random song from "The Starfighters" at 29:02. Beautiful! I love subtle callbacks like that.

Off the top of my head, I think dropping the restaurant owner down the well is probably the most depraved act that occurs in an MST3k film (apart from JT in Sidehackers). That his entire existence is the definition of depression doesn't help, but it's really capped off by the fact the reasoning behind it is never fully explained. Flag on the moon

Sorry Manos, but THIS is the worst movie ever made. Manos had a bad plot; Red Zone Cuba never even comes near one. Manos has awful actors; Red Zone Cuba has people saying things on camera. Even the incorrigible 'Incredibly Strange Creatures...' has to take a backseat to this toxic waste dump on film. Still, the riffs make it one of my top eps all time.

Talk about your incompetence! It's bad enough that most of the dialogue is "looped", but... I'm just watching this scene where they hop off the freight. They're obviously outdoors, but when you listen to their "looped" lines, you can hear the room echo at wherever it is they had their "looping" stage set up. Auggghh.
