An Apology From Mike Nelson; Selected scene commentary by Walter S. Ferguson
As a big MST3K fan, I was apprehensive to watch this. (this was the first film crew movie I watched) The movie itself was horrible. There are parts where there the audio tracks have been lost completely, and thats not really a bad thing. But I was very impressed with the film crew jokes. Its pretty much just like MST3K, because its the same voices, you just can't see their outlines. The lunch break part was.. amusing, but I was glad when they got back to the movie.
I do have to say this though, and this may just be me, but my mother and I found some of the actual dialogue from the movie funnier than some of the jokes. Well, one line in paticular.
Anyway, I can't wait to see more of the film crew! if you are a MST3K fan, I think you will enjoy these!
