    It is my all too recent experience that one does not need a hijacker to create terror and suspense on a commercial plane flight. Questions… Will my entire hinder actually fit in one of these Barbie/Ken seats? Will the lady with the a) screaming baby b) wet constant cough c) male companion that reeks of body funk/alcohol/malfunctioning digestion sit by me? And now we can add the presence of possible Wuhan coronavirus to that scary list as well. Who needs terrorists?

    The film has a mini “Breakfast Club” reunion. Both Anthony Michael Hall and Ally Sheedy appear in the movie.

    Then, there’s this tidbit from IMDb.com:

    “Factual errors

    The entire plot of this film is implausible. Prisoners are normally transported on unmarked aircraft operated by the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System (also known as ‘Con Air’), not civilian passenger flights. Such aircraft are also normally handled at military airports, not commercial ones. Furthermore, flight schedules and manifests are confidential, kept away from public view and known only to those directly involved in the operation. All of the aforementioned factors exist specifically for the purposes of deterring escapes or sabotage, and preventing harm to bystanders.”

    Are you saying that Kate shouldn’t have been on the plane in “Lost”? Man, that show was entirely plausible until now.

    Barbara Stock (Veronica Mitchell) was Udea in Wizards of the Lost Kingdom.

    For the upcoming RiffTrax Live shows, there’s not much point in listing the MST3K connections of Hobgoblins for obvious reasons. Regarding Amityville 4, Jane Wyatt (Alice Leacock) was Fay Bonelli in Superdome, but is better known for her mom roles of Margaret Anderson on Father Knows Best and Spock’s mom Amanda in the Star Trek episode Journey to Babel. Alex Rebar (Reade) was Steve West in The Incredible Melting Man. Editor Skip Schoolnick was editor for Avalanche.

    HA! She was only on screen for a heart beat but I easily spotted Hudson Leick. Oh Callisto. You haunted this man’s formative teenage years effectively.

    You mean like how in ‘Final Justice’ the guy who caught the villain is for some reason also his escort to Italy, they take a passenger flight, AND upon arrival at a civilian airport are not greeted by the authorities and have to take a freakin’ civilian cab to the police station? As Bubsy might say “WHAT COULD PAWSIBLY GO WRONG!?”

    although it’s worth noting that their flight was sabotaged (no duh) and had to land at Malta, but come on

    An additional MST3K credit for Skip Schoolnick. He was also second unit director for Being from Another Planet. I missed it the first time around because I forgot about its alternate title Time Walker (which is how it’s listed on IMDB).

    WOW, what an INCREDIBLE piece of cheese this one is!! One of those TV movies that’s SO bad it’s GREAT, even without the riffing!


    You just KNOW everyone involved with this entertaining stinkburger HAD to have had absolutely NO illusions they were going to be up for any EMMY’s that year (1996) !!


    Wonder if any of the actors/actresses made a point of including this one on their resumes, after the fact….

    Add to it: The arresting cop did so after crossing the Mexican boarder, killing a man, and then dragging the survivor back into Texas. And these were known facts no one was disputing.

    Also, the Con Air flights usually include a Nicholas Cage as a backup against a possible prisoner revolt/escape attempt.
