You know, just watching the poker clip really made me want to take a belt sander to my eyeballs.  But thats just me.  Wonderful review, but I would not watch the film for anything.

Oh, I love this bad movie, its a childhood classic of mine, along with HOWARD THE DUCK.

Then again, I'm a collector of the cards, so of course, I'm going to love & cherish the movie.
I just wish a soundtrack for the move was available.

I can't believe that I never heard of this movie. In 87 I was 14 so I imagine that  I was concerned about things like girls, my computer and being a freshmen in high school. Even with all I'm surprised that this is my first exposure. I am thankful though.

   This is one of the worst ideas ever.  I am an avid bad movie lover, but the Garbage Pail movie was too far.  No offense to the fans, but I didn't like the trading cards while I was in school either!  Thumbdown

I personally find this movie hilarious and awesome. Though if you dig it up purely for nostalgia, you will be really slapped in the face! haha.

Outstanding analysis. Kudos to Ethan for the spot-on review, and to Andrew, for holding the gun to Ethan's head and making him press PLAY.  BounceGiggle

I saw this... thing on Showtime back in '89, and I was stupefied. Literally. The film totally sapped my will to change the channel, turn off the TV, or even get up and just run like hell as fast and as far away from it as I could. Instead, I just sat there, zombie-like, as my gorge rose higher and higher still, and I could feel my eyeballs... crystallizing. Yet I could not budge. I felt like Alex deLarge in the Ludovico chair.  Buggedout 

Ohhh, I viddied well, my brothers. And when it was finally over, and the very last production credit (and for pity's sake why would anybody take CREDIT for this???) had crawled, like a fat malevolent slug, up the television screen, I looked to the merciless heavens and thought, "By all that is holy, I have just witnessed the worst piece of excrement ever committed to celluloid this side of the Vogon empire. And NO ONE IS GOING TO BELIEVE ME!!"

So, I thank you... Andrew, Ethan. Thank you confirming my incomprehensibly hideous experience at the hands of the Topps Chewing Gum suits, and the infinite room full of monkeys they so recklessly employed.

Oh yeah, and lemme tell you something, Mister B. Call Gitmo. Get ahold of the president.  F'God's sake tell 'em: forget about waterboarding. USE THIS MOVIE. Those sumb***hes will tell you EVERYTHING you want to know!

But seriously,

I first saw this movie shortly after the VHS release when I was 8 or 9, rented by my mom, who would have been in her mid-40's at the time.

I remember laughing out loud many times, but the memory that gets me is that MY MOM was laughing so hard that she had tears streaming down her face. 

Years later, she refused to watch "Jackass" because it looked "too obnoxious".  However, she loved "Road Trip".  Question

Whoever thought it would be a good idea to make this film should be congratulated on a job well done.  Garbage Pail Kids the Movie has greatly affects my every day life in that I apply the life lessons taught throughout the film: stealing tools from the poor, being a complete a***ole, being a  drunken rude fool is completely acceptable in today’s society.  The choice of characters in this film is pure theatrical genius.  The script is well written and each seen is implemented with such grace.  Bravo!

I saw a huge cardboard advertisement for this in '87 at my local megaplex in PA but it never opened. I had to wait until Feb. '88 to rent the video. As expected, it's a huge piece of 1980s crap! I can't believe this is on DVD and "Howard The Duck" is not. WHY?!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of those "family movies" that no parent in their right mind would allow their children to watch!

I watched this movie for the first time tonight, and while it was positively awful I could not bring myself to completely hate it.  The film itself was bereft of humor, good acting, and plot, but there was something about the 80's-ness of this film that kept me from despising it.

Fortunately for me, this franchise's craze was before my time!  The characters on the cards were ugly, nasty, and above all, unsettling!  And then to recreate them as midgets in masks, eughh!  There's something quite disturbing about puppets and guys in costumes trying to look like humans and be nasty like them as well!

What it all comes down to is that this bandwagon was never meant to be a feature film!  It should have never went outside of the trading cards!

Appropriately, while other franchises of the 80's, like Care Bears, GI Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and others have re surged in popularity, I have yet to see these kids come back!  Heck, I didn't even know such a thing existed until the Nostalgia Critic reviewed this movie!

Why did this movie suck so bad?
Did the film-makers just not know who their audience were?
It could've been a Cult flick like "Meet the Feebles" if they wanted it to be, but never a family movie.
What were they thinking!
