Great silly fun

"First came Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, a low budget musical spoof of monster movies in which giant tomatoes go on a rampage and eat people, a good-natured and amusing small gem. Years later came three sequels, in which John Astin is introduced as the mad scientist who created the tomatoes and wants to rule the world. These films are slicker than the rough around the edges original, but just as much genial fun. I should warn you that my tolerance for silliness is near limitless, but I love John Astin and I loved these movies. By the way, for one season there was a Saturday morning cartoon with Astin and his tomatoes. Bless him, the dedicated mad scientist never gives up."
"Who's that Ringing in the Seine?"

"The near equal of "Return of the Killer Tomato" and surprisingly good if you like this sort of humor. Gangreen, as a foreign exchange prisoner, is jailed in a French prison where he's found a book containing a prophesy that he hopes to use to his advantage to rule France and then the world. As luck would have it, Gangreen's assistant Igor, played by Steve Lundquist, is a dead ringer for the future king pictured in the book. The true future king of France ("No wonder my last name is Seventeenth"), also played by Steve Lundquist, knows nothing of the prophesy and the story revolves around whether or not the impostor will be discovered in time.
Michael, who's touring France, shanks mare, and Marie, a beautiful French country girl, are the film's romantic interest and also the pair who hope to squash Gangreen's plans of world conquest. Angela Visser, former Miss Universe, plays Marie and is surprisingly good in the role not to mention cute as a bug. The scene where Michael and Marie are sharing dinner with her parents is a riot!
The killer tomatoes themselves now have facial features, fangs and all, which I thought detracted a little from the whimsical absurdity of the concept which, after all, is a good part of the Tomato series' appeal.
Off beat (way off!) satirical humor with sight & sound gags that don't let up make these films work. I don't mean to sound like a prude but the squeaky-clean language and the near total lack of sexual innuendo is a refreshing departure from most current films.
I'm a fan!
Not as terrible as the 3rd one

"The first two are fantastic. The third one is slightly less fun than filling your underwear with starving badgers. This one doesn't live up to the legend that the first two established, but it is so much better than the third."
The best of the 3 sequels

"A hot French babe, WWI reinactments, MEGA-tomato, and an evil tomato concert (complete with a pirate tomato playing a B.C. Rich snakeskin Ironbird). The laughs are fast and furious, ala - 'I thought a threesome was when you used both hands!!'. Fuzzy tomato is back, but not as aggravating as usual. The King of France is cool too in his double role as GangGreen's sidekick. But man that French babe, what a tart."
