Keith A. (Keefer522)
Reviewed on 10/14/2013...
A notorious no-budget horror spoof in which a motley crew of military men and secret agents try to protect California from a vicious veggie takeover. An utterly random flick with endless corny gags, non-existent acting, and even the occasional musical number. Make no mistake: this movie sucks, but it sucks extremely well.

Fun fact: the irritating-on-purpose pop song "Puberty Love" which serves as a major plot point and running gag in this movie was sung by a young Matt Cameron, of future Soundgarden and Pearl Jam fame. Seriously, I'm not making that up. Look it up.

Meeting Expectations
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What so many people don't realize is that Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was made to be bad. It was written as a cheesy satirie of a silly genre of films. I think it achieved that. The expectations were met. There are two classic scenes: The Japanese scientist being dubbed and the slow speed car chase. They both stand out in my mind. A bit of trivia: The helicopter crash early in the movie was real. They didn't plan on it crashing, but got it on film. Nobody was hurt, but the helicopter was obviously destroyed. Jack Riley (the future Mr. Carlin on the Bob Newhart Show) was in it when it crashed.Finally: The guy in the Arab outfit in the final scene was me. I wonder why my career didn't take off after that? Oh, well."
A worthy cult classic

"No sense in making fun of the script - the plot couldn't possibly work. No sense making fun of the special effects - you can see the wheels on some of the tomatoes. No sense making fun of the music - it'll only come back to haunt you in the late hours.

Somehow the over the top kitsch makes this movie a classic. You have to laugh. And watch it again and laugh some more. And watch it again making up drinking games as you go. No wonder it's become a cult classic.

Not a classic quality movie, but a prime example of excellence in the B-cult genre."
Great--BUT!! WARNING!!! Don't buy Director's Cut!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a classic goofball flick: you'll love it or hate it. I love it!I am mainly writing this as a warning about the "Director's Cut" version of the film that Disney released. Viewers should be warned, this is not good! It's true that a cut scene or two is added back in...but the payoff isn't worth the price. The movie is interrupted several times for comments from the director!!!!! And they cut out the Advertising song!!!!! ("They sell, they buy, and only I know why!") Try to find a full copy, the restored scene is feeble, and isn't worth the interruptions and loss of the terrible, terrible song."
