My mistake, that wasn't Harry Mudd. That was Tribble-pusher Cyrano Jones as the safecracker. You Trekkies out there know who I mean.

I have to say, I actually liked the movie! The riffs are great, and I laughed a lot, but I was actually invested in the main character, and really hurt by the (spoiler!) gold-digging, manipulative Betty! The safe cracker and his brother in law were great, too! Good movie, with great jokes from Mike and the bots!

Crow ain't too far off when saying, as Marv: "I'm gonna blow it all on video games!"
if you grew up when this ep aired, the mid 90s, that was the best era for gaming, Nintendo vs Sega, etc....

(Gamer moment over, thanks for your time...)

that dad's a dirty old man if he says Betty's the best looking girl in school.
and why does every bad 50's movie have a woman named Betty in it anyway?

Okay. Granted--Betty is a stone cold, manipulative, gold-digging trollop. But her teacher's treatment of her is unsettling inappropriate, and would cost him his job nowadays.
I mean he basically told her, to her face: "You're a sweet piece of tail, but dumber than a bag of hammers"....JESUS! The harassment lawsuit that would result from a teacher talking to a student like that these days would bankrupt the school district!

Like Crow said .. all this because the English teacher was a fucking Jerk! Sure ... punish the kid for doing someone else's homework by ruining his life. This just proves that strict, straight up, upright citizens of society are total jerks and should be avoided at all costs!! They seem to cause crimes to happen.

At 37:00 Tom Servo says, "Levon and the Hawks," in response to the shot of the diner, because it looks somewhat like the original cover of The Band's 1973 album, "Moondog Matinee." Somebody is a fan of The Band, that's at least the fourth mention of them I've spotted.

Y'know what? The actor playing Marv is hot. There, I said it. He's certainly weird-looking, but it works.

So, don't let those riffers' comments get you down... [checks wikipedia].... guy who died not long after he finished filming this movie! You were really good-looking!

...now I just feel like a creep.

... I'm afraid my husband might be headed for trouble. Keith is a good, kind, decent man, but I think the desert has started to melt his brain cells. Let me explain. He works in the chemical lab of a power plant. Recently the company hired an assistant by the name of Frank. Well, in the course of training Keith has told him to “Push the button, Frank.” He then laughs hysterically for no obvious reason.

as per the drill in the forehead after the commercial break to "relieve the pressure" .. that's a -real thing!- called "trepanning" that people used to do and sometimes still do. i got this crazy documentary on dvd several years back called "a hole in the head" after talking about it with this lady on another forum. interviews with people who've done it, talking to this real calm happy character with a funky dimple scar between his eyes on his forehead. references to it in film include the end scene of Pi. just for reference. world's a weird and wonderful place......

Marv really has no head for crime. The whole idea about a heist is to keep it under wraps until after it is done.

Marvin isn't just awkward and ugly, but he doesn't actually have any intelligence/plain-as-day common sense. She just says, "You're kind of special," to him at 32:32 and he reveals his entire following train of the thought seconds later by saying, "But you go with Vince." He actually thinks she authentically wants him?

Wow, Tarantino-like carnage ending (hmm…wonder if he ripped off anything from this one too?). In any case, as I have noted many times my friends, just one hot girl carrying heavy “daddy issues” can take out more men than an Armored Division.

This is one of the episodes when the movie actually pissed me off. The fact that Marv is wimpy and friendless but inexplicably has a connection to career criminals to help with the heist. By help with the heist, I mean do the entire heist themselves with Marv's only involvement is going along with them. To top everything off, Marv acts like he's somehow in charge of the heist by giving orders like, "Hurry," and "Come on," and the two professionals actually listen to him and follow his retarded commands.

I've been watching MST3K for years, and somehow this one always slipped by me. So many good visual dumb moments in this one: giant Servo, Crow's face on sideways after the 'bots try to blow up Gypsy's diary, Dr. F literally stuffing a dinosaur down Frank's pants, and just so much LOVE when Mike chucks Servo across the theater for singing "Don't Pay the Ferryman." Seriously one of their best ever physical comedy episodes.

If I were seeing this movie "raw", unriffed, in an actual theater, I'd have gotten up and left immediately after the scene in the coffee shop where Marv divulges his plan to Betty, as I could've totally guessed the rest of the plot.

Seriously, man... who else here, after that scene, could totally see Marv's big plan going straight down the toydee in a dozen different ways?

This episode has such a depressing movie that I don't watch it very often (as in, not once in the last year), but being reminded of Giant Servo and Mike throwing Servo out of the theater...well, I'll watch it, and probably be depressed by Marv's absolutely depressing life.

As lame and cheesy as the short about the bread salesman was, they had a point about bread being important. Ancient Athens was brought to its knees when the grain shipments stopped coming in from the Black Sea. Man's gotta eat!

28:16: Richard Dixon and John Nickolaus on the same credit screen, a long silent pause, and then all Mike could come up with was mumbling something like "(that should be) Jack Nickolaus"? I bet they regretted missing that one.

This is the single most depressing story and Marv is undoubtedly the most pathetic character in film history. That saddest part is that the producers expected the audience to connect with Marv obviously because he's the only character in the movie who comes close to being the protagonist.
