Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie
The mad and evil scientist, Dr. Clayton Forrester, has created an evil little scheme that is bound to give him world global domination but first thing’s first. He plans to torment Mike Nelson and the robots by sending them a real stinker of a film to watch called, “This Island Earth.” He is convinced that this movie will drive them insane. And since the guys cannot control when the movie begins or ends, they are forced to witness the true horror that is this awful movie that has a lobster creature dressed in slacks. But will this be the ultimate cheese that breaks the boys’ spirits? It’s up to one test subject’s quick wit, sharp sense of humor, and utter intolerance for cinematic garbage to foil the plans of the scientist and to save the Earth.

BrotherNumpsie » It was a really boring night and me and my sisters came across this movie. At first I didn't notice the silhouettes at the bottom of the screen. WE had missed the first half unfortunately.
Anyway, it was the best laugh i've had for ages. I just can't describe how blooming funny this film is but we were giggling just about the whole way through!
It's such a clever idea and so well done. I have bought a box set and hope it will be as good.
We had never even heard of the tv series and are not sci-fi fans, but still enjoyed the film very much.
I give it 9 1/2 out of 10, because nothing is perfect!
