    Extremely Entertaining!!

    I had high expectations of this book because I was familiar with Nelson's work on MST3K. And he did not disappoint! He keeps the laughs coming and rips into terrible movies and their actors. You won't be disappointed!

    Excellence from Mike Nelson!

    It obviously took me a long time to get to this, but I have to say that Mike (MST3K) Nelson's efforts here, while indeed dated, as a previous reviewer stated, nevertheless age very well, especially when the more timeless humor emerges, as it often does. Michael J. Nelson, just as Joel Hodgson, Kevin Murphy, Trace Beaulieu, and the rest of the Mystery Science Theater creators, is an original voice in humor, and even though this book won't make you at all wistful for the days of Pauly Shore and Carrot Top movies, it will make you wistful for the days when someone with erudite wit made fun of them. Well worth the wait, and well worth the read.

    The comedy never ends

    I just read this book recently, and even though it is a little dated as far as the shows and movies that are written about, this book is so funny! I laughed until I cried. Any tv and movie trivia fan will love this book.

    Funniest thing I've ever read

    I don't really like books but I made an exception for this one since it was from MST3K's (my favorite show) Mike Nelson. I recomend it to any one that has a sense of humor or that is a BIG fan og MST3K (like me)

    Megacheese a megamasterpiece!

    Folks, if you've made it to this page it means you're probably close to purchasing the book... do it. Seriously. The book is very well written and uproariously funny. And it fits perfectly on the top of the toilet. It's like watching one of the better MST3K's, like 'Girls Town' - continuous hilarity that will ping your gray matter. Mike's not pulling any punches on big-name celeb's, particulary those who've made more than one bad movie (Val Kilmer, Danny DeVito, _Jim_Carey_). Once you get the book, I recommend going straight to the review of 'What Dreams May Come'. Oh, and one other note: If you're a fan (or family) of Jim Carey, you stand a good chance of being offended.

    We want more Megacheese

    This is the best book I have ever read. It's funny and insightful. You look at movies and Adam Sandler in a whole new way after reading this book. A must buy unless you WANT to see all of Jim Carrey's movies.

    The art of creative writing.

    Well i was browsing in Barnes and Noble and by accident I ran across this book,and I must say I couldn't put it down. I didn't have my purse with me so I couldn't buy it, but I went home and the next day went on hunt down for it. I searched high and low and finally ran across this masterpiece. I bought it and have told everyone about it. Being a fan of his from previous works (mst3k), I couldn't resist. Enjoy it Buy this .

    The Funniest Book Mike Nelson Has Ever Written

    It is very rare that I actually laugh out loud while reading a book, but I caught myself doing so numerous times while reading this one. Mike throws funny, insightful barbs at popular movies as well as he did at B-movies on MST3K. Buy it. Read it. Love it.

    The cheese has hit the fan!!

    I really enjoyed this book. Mike Nelson is very, very funny!! I like his little side-notes as he reviews a movie. His look at the 'Five Families of Film' even makes the Baldwins look funny.
