EAT AND RUN - 2 Slimes
Rated R
Copyright 1986 New World Pictures
Reviewed by Andrew Borntreger on 'a long time ago'

The Characters:  

  • Mickey McSorely - Police detective who is constantly talking to himself.
  • Judge Cheryl Cohen - Bleeding heart liberal judge, total bitch.
  • Sorely McSorely - Mickey's father, goofy old man who acts like a schizophrenic Sherlock Holmes.
  • Police Captain - All he does is eat.
  • Drug Pusher - Italian guy, fed to Murray.
  • Murray Creature - Rotund space alien who develops a taste for fine food. Eats a poison-laced doll.

Buy It!

The Plot: 

Anybody like Italian? What're you lookin' at den? You lookin' at me, think I got somethin' for ya? I got somethin' for ya right here... (At this point I'm grabbing my crotch and seem to be attacking my teeth.)

Along with supplying a number of seriously stereotyped Italian characters this movie has another redeeming quality: Italian food. Not as in cooked by, as in comprised of, as in eating an Italian person. For some people this might be good. Todd Reinhart (friend of mine) for example, he's been dating and is now engaged to this one girl who is Catholic. No, she is really Catholic (you know what I mean).

Enough about my reconstituted virgin friend, our alien connoisseur has just arrived on Earth when an Italian guy gives him a lift, while driving he extolls the virtues of his native cuisine. Not the brightest thing to do around a four hundred pound space alien. After tasting the Italian in question Murray is hooked, he begins stalking and eating people in New York City's "Little Italy."

McSorely is a police detective, tasked by the department head with finding out why all these people are disappearing, on the side he's boffing Judge Cohen. Cheryl has a delightful habit of being promiscous, she unfortunately has a scorching case of herpes too. I'm dead certain mom wasn't thinking of herpes when she taught you about sharing. McSorely finally captures the monster by feeding it an Italian drug pusher strapped with morphine, but his liberal lover goes ballistic! Cheryl sets the alien free and hooks up with him, trouble is she's Italian. Only her jilted boyfriend's quick thinking saves the day once Murray finds out.

Trying to take this film seriously would be a heinous mistake, along with all the strange jokes there's McSorely's eccentric habit of thinking out load. In fact, the two McSorely's never say anything to each other...'s rather frightening.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Never lecture a space alien about ethnic food.
  • Grabbing your crotch and sticking your tongue out at a girl will get you laid.
  • Cops are dumb as a stump.
  • In New York City grandmothers knit pistol holsters for their grandchildren.
  • Morphine looks a great deal like flour.
  • Strapping sedatives to an Italian and then dressing him up like an organ grinder (complete with monkey) is wrong.
  • Police still have to read a human-eating-space-alien his Miranda Rights.
  • Women love guys who can tie knots.
  • Italians store dough in briefcases.
  • Deserted sections of New York City have tumbleweeds.
  • It's no use telling a mime to go and get help.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 4 mins - Dude, you are way overweight. (Notice I didn't make a comment on cutting back his intake of greasy foods.)
  • 22 mins - Mickey! Italian munching going on! Right behind you!
  • 26 mins - Stop talking to yourself man, now your dad's doing it. Gads.
  • 30 mins - Why is this guy selling morphine from the evidence room like he's in an infomercial?
  • 41 mins - It's dressed up as a boy scout!
  • 42 mins - She had sex with the space alien! Oh, herpes city alien dude.
  • 57 mins - Why does this guy keep frying everything? Ring, watch, id bracelet...
  • 61 mins - Way too close to Cheryl's teeth here.
  • 64 mins - Damn mime...

Green Music Note eatrun2.wav Captain: "You trying to tell me some guy's going around eating Italians?"

Sleeping with the fishes? More like napping with the tapeworms if you ask me. Doesn't anybody else find the idea of a fat guy going around eating Italians funny?

The main lesson of this movie:  There are still ethnic minorities you can make fun of and not get into lots of trouble.

I remember seeing this film in a theater with my father.  Ten years later, my father died of cancer.

I think there's a connection.

I want my 2.99 back that I paid for this movie at a flea market.  I mean it was kinda funny, but not 2.99 funny.

I saw this movie once randomly on late night TV.  I happened to be on LSD at the time.  It scarred me for life.

This is one of my all time favorite flicks.  I haven't seen it in an awful long time, but the memory of the scene where the police chief reads off a list of homicide victims (all Italians) and both him and the detective don't find any connection, or the scene where the judge after sex goes off to the bathroom to masturbate while the detective says to her that that was great and how did she like it and she says she loved it (with the machine sounding off in the background) or the scene with the mime calling him up, or the pusher from Persia or the whole Italian food premise or the constant talking to oneself, I mean, the movie was freakin' brilliant and jam packed with fun scenes.  I give it two thumbs up and two Italian ices.

Very funny movie...great review. I have since used McSORLEY's 'international sign of love' gesture on all women.

I am a stud!

Oh, so *that's* what it was called!!  I have a fragment of a memory of seeing an ad for this-- that's right, there was an ad campaign-- wayyyy back when I was a baby.  In just those thirty seconds, that fat guy scarred my psyche for life.  I've always wondered if I imagined it.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
