This is the funniest movie I've eves seen in my life, I'm gonna try to have a bumper sticker made for me that says "honk if you love eegah"  References from the movie are now common in my everday life:  If I'm looking for someone - Roxxxxxyyy!,  When I do something stupid - "Sorry, sir; but I'm kind of an idiot."  Damn, I just wet myself

You wouldn't get me to watch the Non-MST3K version even if you paid me to see it. I just loved it when Eegah knocked out poor Arch Hall Jr.(Gag!) with one punch. I was hoping that Eeegah would have bludgeoned the "Cabbage Patch Elvis" as he was singing a song in the middle of the desert, with musical and vocal accompaniment mind you, just to put us out of our misery. And watch out for snakes!

Saw this one years ago...missed the MST3K cover of it...I'd love to see that. The reason Arch Hall Jr. got into movies and music was his father Arch Sr. Dad was the money and motivation behind the scenes. He also wrote directed and even acted in several of them under stage names. He invisioned Archie boy as a new Frankie Avalon...maybe Frankie Avalon if he'd been jabbed in the face with a hot poker. Sorry Arch...damn... you were an ugly kid...I should know, I was too. Any one with a Fender in his hands in those days was passed off as a crazy Rock-n-Roll wonder...sorry here Arch...I CAN play guitar...But I can't sing any better than you did. Maybe if I had a star crossed old man footing the bill, I'd been in a movie like this one instead of you...and people would be picking on me all the time and you'd get some peace. Arch Jr. went on to become a piliot and that was the last I ever heard about him. I loved Kiels beard...I think they bought that sucker at Woolworths. When I saw this film years ago, I too laughed at the thirty something girl as a teenager...the next time I saw it, on video...I said well, at least she was working in movies when she was my, twenty years or so later...damn! Reasonably hot chick for her place and time...regardless of how old she was supposed to be. I wonder if she's in a wheelchair somewhere now? Anyhow...this movie is boring, like a lot of famous "bad" films, it's more fun to talk about than to actually sit through. Arch wasn't any worse than the grade Z wannabes then or now. The movie had Scientists, Chicks, Dune Buggies, Fender Guitars, Rock-n-Roll, Guns, Big Scary Dude with Club...and SiFi Plot linked (picarously) with a Biblical message. It sucked up Drive-In dollars. Going to the Drive-In for these things was a blast. I was a tag along little brother in those days, and the memories are fond ones. But on TV, even through video, it's not worth the time to watch unless you have people over and do the MST3K treatment on it. Then it can be fun. Remember, see it only with a group of like thinking bad film buffs...or you'll be sorry.

     You guys don't know nuthin'.  Arch Hall Jr. was a trash-o-rama teen rock star and a genius.  And he still is.

Even without the MST3K treatment, this movie is a true cult classic.  AFAIK, this was a cult classic almost as soon as it was released.  Everyone must see this at least once!

Richard Kiel is my favorite actor!  ANd I curse Arch Hall Jr for being so gruesome, even though it's not his fault, but I don't care.  Kids can be so cruel.  I know a girl who's liscense plate frame reads "Honk if you love Eegah!"  Also Arch Hall Jr and Richard Kiel were in another movie together.  It's called "Nasty Rabbit" and I think it may be about nuclear war, but I haven't seen it yet so I don't know.

One of the few films in the Medveds' original "Fifty Worst Films Of All Time" book that still actually make the short list today.  And deservedly so.

Arch Hall Jr. may not be a great actor or singer, but I loved every film he was in including his swansong NASTY RABBIT. I really sensed that he tried his best. I guess to really enjoy his films you had to be 15 or 16 when they first came out.

If anyone knows if there is a Museum of Bad Hair
I want to nominate Arch Hall Jr. to the Bad Hair Hall of Fame!!

The weirdest part of this movie is Roxy trying to avoid Eegah's advances while her old man reassures her, basically, that the caveman isn't such a bad guy, really, once you get to know him and he's only trying to be friendly.  I think it's a not-so-subtle hint that he'd rather have her marry Eegah than her pasty, strange-haired boyfriend, and can you blame him? At least Eegah won't be playing that awful guitar.

Richard kiele was better off playing JAWS  in two james bound movies he looks terrible with a beard and after you see the movie you will scream EGAAGH

Why did they called it EGAAH? was it the sound most people made while they walked out of this mess? and the phonie beard looked dorky and by the end the whole audiance will scream EGAAH or UGHH to show what they think of it

I saw the MST3K movie and that is the funniest movie i have ever and my friends watch it almost everytime we have a sleepover. we've practically memorized the whole thing. but yes it is a bad bad movie. you know with the incest toads, the random animals, and the director yelling "watch out for snakes." its just bad. but it still is the funniest movie i have ever seen in my entire life.  but arch hall jr. is the ugliest man i have ever seen...and the stupidest. AND WHY IN GOD'S NAME IS ROXY'S HAIR SO POOFY?!
