  2. I saw the review of this movie that was done on Movie Nights by Allison Pregler. Look it up on YouTube and then decide if will endure the pain of the whole movie, even with riffing.

    Eric Roberts provides the cat’s voice? So, I guess this movie is actually the Master’s most diabolical plan yet.

  4. Also, accdg. to IMDB (another Trivia-page factoid they probably dug up along with the one about Eric Roberts’ living room):

    The interior of Phil and Chris’ home is the same set used for the 2011 pornographic movie Jules Jordan presents Ass Worship 13 in the scenes with porn star Franceska Jaimes.

    (Well, it IS David DeCoteau…Oops, sorry, Mary Crawford.)

    So, um, there is that. In keeping with the rule that if you see a cheap direct-video kiddy film, check the producer’s resume for either porn or horror.

    And at this point with RT, I’m asking, y’know, why am I even PAYING for Amazon Prime anymore?…

    …The Garfield Story!

    A Talking Cat!?! is Eek! the Cat’s cousin.

    A talking cat?! That’thh Dethhhpicable!

    Looks like someone’s going to have to have a talk with Dr. Bellows…

    Let me guess, that old guy must be the villain (what are the odds?)… and the teenagers there are the heroes. [Don Rickles voice]Do I win a cookie?[/Rickles]

    Because when I come to MST3k Info I need facts about films called “Ass Worship”, stay classy as always Eric. :/

    I took a first glance at the cover for this and thought David Prowse (Vader in costume) had really sunk low as the old man. Pretty good resemblance. Almost flushed my autograph. :P

    Subtle as always, ok for that I will buy this right now. I was going to anyways but that made me chuckle.

    And I bet the old man is a villain because his cat ran away which explains his dislike for them. But in the end he gets reunited with said cat after 30 years(?!) and has a change of heart.

    But yes he must be the villain, only someone purely evil would wear a tie that blue and wide…uhoh.

    Well, was just hoping it’ll be a little aversion therapy, to put that “Ick!” taste in your head every time RT does ANOTHER cheap Amazon Prime direct-video indie directed by David DeCoteau. Of which there are at least several a year…Uh, that’s Rifftrax, not DeCoteau. Okay, him too.
    We complain about Roger Corman in the 50’s, but Roger never built his career on Ass Worship movies.

    No, really, I AM the only one reading the descriptions and watching the clips on these posts beyond the cover picture, right?
    And I only mention that because Johnny Whitaker looks–or did, up this point–surprisingly good for the former kid from “Sigmund & the Sea Monsters” and that 70’s Tom Sawyer movie.

    He’s done a lot of charity work helping other former child-stars who’ve been through the stuff he’s had (it’s hard to watch his old movies with Jodie Foster), and comes off as one of the good ones. Would that Eric Roberts could be as proactive.

    Ass Worship is one of the fastest growing faiths in the world; being associated with it is hardly going to dent someone’s business model.

    This movie doesn’t really have a villain. Unless you count a single scene with a careless driver. The titular Talking Cat!?! helps both young and old alike with their first world problems.

    Maybe you are right…

    “Like that last Francis the Mule picture.

    It got terrible notices.

    – Huge hit!

    – Lines around the block.”

    If that isn’t Ass Worship, tell me what is.

    Rifftrax could literally only choose movies that you think would be perfect for them and you would still complain about their choice in riff fodder.

    Well that was the first time I have actually been embarrassed for people for having done something in any film I have seen on MST or RT. In most of the films and such you could see in some places where they were trying to do something but here, this was just a pile of **** someone threw together because they owed money to a dealer. I could almost hear Eric Roberts doing blow in the recording. And the cheap effect when the cat talks is just disturbing.

    So you are admitting you are trying to sabotage Rifftrax? Isn’t that a little extreme, excessive and showing of an almost erotic interest in them? Maybe something a sociopath would do?
    Doesn’t this get to the point now where it’s just not fun to watch either of the programs if you are so hell bent on being so toxic about it? Is your purpose to hinder other’s enjoyment of something they are passionate about and if so do you truly love doing it? Something maybe to ask yourself. Really dude.

    Yeah I made a comment in passing about that tie, obviously here it was made for him to appear tacky, Trump wears them that way because he thinks it makes him look distinguished.

    They send the old ladies to the deprogram colonies to read Garfield minus Garfield, never to return.

    I checked out “A Talking Cat!?!” un-riffed a few years ago after hearing it reviewed on The Flop House (the bad movie podcast of current MST3K head writer Elliot Kalan). It’s definitely a trip. I look forward to hearing MKB’s take on it!

    You know what they might could do at Rifftrax Live performances? After the show, give audience members multiple-choice surveys to see which riffs they recognized and thereby get additional insight on riffing for “modern” audiences (which they can discard or not, it’s their call). Yep, that’s what they might could do at Rifftrax Live performances, all right.

    (BTW, not by any means a big deal, but shouldn’t the forum spellcheck have been adjusted to recognize the word “Rifftrax” by now?)
