When a spaceship full of hairy people crashes on an unknown planet, it's not enough that the surviving members look a lot like the Starland Vocal Band (it is a help, of course, but not sufficient for their survival). They ... more »

"How Mystery Science Theater 3000 missed skewering this movie is a mystery to me. The Rifftrax trio of Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett do an outstanding job of tearing this movie apart, much the same way that the stop-motion dinosaurs tear their victims apart. One pointless shot of the sun in the sky elicited this memorable comment. "Hi. This is God. Watch me mess with these chuckleheads!" The only way anyone can sit through this movie of space shipwrecked survivors wandering around aimlessly, periodically stopping for rest periods, and occasionally getting killed, is by enjoying the riffs of the Rifftrax trio."

""Halt, who plods there?" Oh I know, a bunch of hairy people from late 70s public television... all to the wonderful sounds of painfully awful synthesizer music. If you like watching people walk around while not really doing anything, then it's the greatest movie you've ever seen. On the other hand, it's much more fun hearing the gang give it their all they've got. I was very impressed with the job they did this time on the commentary because there is A LOT of downtime in the movie for them to cover and they pull it off wonderfully, even slipping in a callback or two to MST3K episodes. Basically, it's another quality Rifftrax episode that's worth every penny if you like the commentaries they produce."

"Agreed with what the last reviewer said this is one you will continue to watch over and over again. Probably as good if not better (and that's saying allot) then even the old MST3K Material, here the gags never stop everyone's in full force the Riffs are relentless throughout even the song at the DVD menu is Hysterically written, a little tune which matches this film perfectly. You would think it was meant for parody it's almost as if someone went back in time and said....
"Ya know, since they are going to make fun of this in the future, let's all act as stupid as possible, with no plot direction whatsoever" after seeing this it will be clear, easily the best Rifftrax yet. "here let's hide out in a wide open space so nothing can see us" Funny! "The rock caused us to throw our stuff!" *Shrieks with laughter* (One of the funniest lines in the whole movie) If you are a fan and you are reading this, don't think about it, Buy It. It may bring tears of Laughter."
Mike Nelson never disappoints!

"I've been a huge fan of Rifftrax ever since I stumbled upon them back when they first came out. I'm so glad they are releasing stuff on DVD now. We just finished watching Planet of Dinosaurs last night and both my wife and I loved it. There were several laugh-out-loud moments and the running commentary kept us entertained throughout. Another strong entry in the Rifftrax collection. I highly recommend this one. I hope they keep them coming!"
