    Mary Jo, I love you. Bridget, I love you. However I would not watch that movie even if I had ten foot eye stalks.

    Fun Fact #1: Executive producer William Aldrich appeared in the original What Ever Happened to Baby Jane as a lunch counter assistant at the beach. He had also been the third assistant director.

    Fun Fact #2: Associate producer Christopher DeFaria voiced Peppermint Patty in four Peanuts specials (most notably the Thanksgiving special) and the TV movie Snoopy Come Home. That’s right, Peppermint Patty was voiced by a guy. Well, maybe that’s not too big a surprise.

    Wow. I never knew anyone had done a remake of that movie. Don’t know why anyone would — the original is pretty classic.

    “U.S. Elections: How We Vote.”

    Enjoy.

    This is how I feel. I lovelovelove B&MJ but I can’t stomach this movie, even though the riffs in the preview were funny. Think I’ll re-watch one of their Sherlock Holmes outings instead.

    You’ve noticed all the remakes, reboots, and prequels over the past few years, right” Same thing. “We’re sorry, but there’s profit to be had.”

    It’s the TV version, which is how RT was able to get it for PD-free. Not as well known as The Boy in the Plastic Bubble, granted.

    Now, you’ve got five seconds to tell me whatever happened to her, or I’ll……oh, silly me, forgot to fire the bazooka.

    To be fair, he said he had a cold the week they were voicing the Thanksgiving special, and his pitch was just husky enough for “You touched my hand, Chuck…You sly dog.”

    I know you think RiffTrax is just constantly raiding some store of public domain films, but I don’t think that’s the case here. It was produced by the same company that made Ammityville 4, which they have a deal to riff live. My guess is that relationship opened the doors for this film.

    You really think that Rifftrax gets these movies for free because you think they are public domain?

    No, they stay awake at nights hoping and praying that there’ll be a followup to “A Talking Cat?!?”.

    That, and they want to inspire the youth of America with more 50’s educational Cleanliness & Responsibility shorts.

    Off-topic question: Who edits the films featured on RiffTrax? Is it RiffTrax themselves or Multicom? I was watching Amanda and the Alien and there were a LOT of silence gaps due to swear words, plus a confusing fade out/in during the climax which I can only assume was editing out a “violent” scene. Whoever’s responsible, it’s rather off-putting. I’m an adult, I’m paying for these VODs, I expect the full product. If there is objectionable content in the film, just put up a disclaimer on the site and have that be it.

    That one seriously bugged me. The SWAT team arrives and confronts them, fade out, and then the confrontation is over. Wha happa?
