The problem with this movie is not that it is science fiction, nor that it is horror, nor even that it is a comedy.  The problem is that it is also a musical.  Its budget is a problem as well.  Cub scout troops have bigger budgets than this film.  For those keeping track, that makes it a no-budget sci-fi horror comedy musical.


You should run away from this movie right now, and hide under your bed until is is gone.

Huh, Rob Sanderson here sort of looks like Pee Wee Herman in glasses almost or possibly Rick Moranis from Little Shop of Horrors.  Maybe that's just me.

Regardless, a horror musical doesn't really work well (Except with Little Shop of Horrors like mentioned), especially on a very low budget.  Out of curiousity, what made you keep this movie at one slime level instead of skull?  It doesn't sound like there was anything good about this film.

Actually, I think that Titanic would have been greatly improved as a movie if there had been a cargo of screaming monkeys that got released about half way through. It certainly couldn't have made it any worse.

Sounds rather like Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, except it horror/science fiction instead of fifth tier supers whom Aqua Man would consider lame.

The film was right on the edge of getting a skull, but it does have some redeeming qualities, like Abdullah singing about being the big meat eater, and even an earlier song and dance with him and belly dancers.  When I skull something, it means I really dislike it.

Right around the time that Jack and Rose were steaming up the windows of the car?  Yeah, what that scene needed was a sudden injection of upset monkeys.

Uncle Sam wants you Jan Wczinski. Yes, you . . . and your flying car.

The Pentagon is looking into the feasability of a car that flies like a helicopter, and then when it lands, it'll be able to travel cross country like an off-road vehicle, and be large enough to carry four soldiers and their equipment.

Lol BoyScoutKevin! TeddyR I had a dream last night that I was one of the staff in the butcher shop in Big Meat Eater entirely based on reviews i've read/clips seen (I've never watched the movie); it was pretty vivid and colourful and more than a little disturbing!

So, I finally watched this tonight. I had read the review. My brother, who selected it from my instant queue, had not. I think that means I win. Or we both lost.

I actually think the movie could have been halfway entertaining if it had a budget larger than $5, or if it had been filmed competently. Neither was really the case.

Anyway, a few things I noticed:

I believe the movie spelled it "bolonium." Myself, I prefer "bolognium." I'm not going to go back to the movie and check, however.

The Wczinskis are apparently Moldavian (from a part of Romania). I can't really explain how the daughter has a North American accent, and why the son has a British accent. I'd say they travel around, but a major plot point (if this movie has any) is that the parents have lived in the same town since they were married.

Also, I suspected the movie was filmed in Canada when the town hall is shown with a picture of Queen Elizabeth II on the wall. The brief flash of cash clinched it. This movie was filmed in Canada. In Canada in the 1980's. For no money.

Lastly, I think Billy Joel stole "We Didn't Start the Fire" from this movie. The vocal patterns and intonations by the son in that one song about chemistry is almost exactly the same as Joel's more famous, but later, tune.

Bottom line, there are things to like in this movie (I thought the aliens were great), but it is still pretty bad. From 1 to 5, I give this a 2.
