The mad and evil scientist, Dr. Clayton Forrester, has created a scheme that he hopes will gain him world domination. He plans to torment Mike Nelson and the robots by sending them the worst ever B-movie to watch called, "This Island Earth." He is convinced that this movie will drive them insane. The guys cannot control when the movie begins or ends, and they are forced to witness this truly horrible movie -- including a lobster creature dressed in slacks. Now it will have to be up to one test subject's quick wit, sharp sense of humor, and utter intolerance for cinematic garbage to foil the plans of the scientist and to save the Earth.

A funny thing happened on the way to making "MST3K The Movie" -- someone else was financing it. When that Someone Else saw the script, they wanted it toned down so as not to offend anyone's grandma. Result: noticeably nicer sets, but no edge to the humor. Oh, they're funny -- they're too professional to not be -- but you're not going to be repeating any of it later.

Which probably makes it a good candidate for the newbie's first MST3K. For the veteran, it's worth seeing once or twice, and it certainly streamlines its target film [This Island Earth] by cutting out the brainy middle part & sticking to the action.
