Movie Reviews

Like Mad Magazine on Film
Catman | Oregon, USA | 06/04/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Probably the best of the 4 part Killer Tomato trilogy. Like Mad Magazine, it's chock full of sight gags, sound gags, satire and clever humor. This was George Clooney's first full length film and compared to the first killer tomato movie, the acting is pretty darn good throughout. Wacky satire at it's best. Next best tomato movie is "Killer Tomatoes Eat France" but it's not yet on DVD.

"Return Of The Killer Tomatoes is a film about many things. Product placement, TV news, big breasted babes in bikinis, Michael Jackson, Miami Vice, the Pope, scams, peanut butter on pizza and many other fads of the 80's. Starring such greats as George Clooney, John Astin and, of course, Karen Mistal (who has the best bottom of any B-movie actress I have ever seen) this is NOT as funny as the first but still has a ton of laughs within its many scenes.
But under all the humor is a serious view about how people felt about the last, closing years of the Cold War against Communism. In a time when the Red Menace was seen as giant ants or aliens from space the director was brave enough to show that not all Communists, who were represented by the tomatoes, were bad. Chad, the always confused main male character, falls in love with Tara, a tomato-woman(but then who won't fall in love with a smart, willing, good cooking, great dressing tomato?). And FT, played by FT,(who as we all know become a huge star in the film industry as while as live theater in Europe), starred as the socialist with a heart of gold, who was even willing to put his own life in danger for the American way of life. THIS is a B-MOVIE to beat all B-movies. And remember, Tomorrow IS another day!

How about some Crest? Commercialism was never funnier!

"AN UNFORGETTABLE FILM! Yes, I am not kidding, and I am not drunk! Okay, it's an extremely silly comedy, drawing from the same vein that was later tapped in "The Naked Gun" films. John "Gomez" Astin & a young bohunk named George Clooney give memorably hilarious performances. Those elements would make the film a delight. This film REALLY stands out when the movie is shut down due to lack of funds. Only blatant product placement can keep this production going. This was a heckuva plot twist for a mere 1988 B-movie, and its rip-roaringly zany execution deserves more accolades & cult appreciation than its received. It took me years to find a used VHS tape of this movie, which was my holy grail of 1997. Discovering this DVD was a dream come true for me."
George Clooney wants you to forget this movie...

"but you never should! This hysterical film cuts through the dry humor of the original Attack of the Killer Tomatoes to give you one laugh after another! What happens when you make half of a movie and run out of money? What should happen to people caught smuggling ketchup? What exactly do you do when you find out that your girlfried is a vegetable? These questions and more are answered in this fantastic movie!"
