Rate That Man (Mellow)

What do you think--now that you've "seen him?"

I'm giving this a ten. An instant classic in my books.

Hands down the best riff I have seen in a long time. I laughed so hard through the entire film. I mean it was so bad. Flubbed lines, bad acting, bad furniture, bad music..just all around bad. Instant classic indeed!

I loved the riff, but I went away from the movie perplexed. I actually found the Guy From Harlem attractive and likable. It was so painful to watch the green-belt martial arts sequences! Oh, if only they could have sprung for a few more classes! But I would love to see more VODs like this one. Or Neutron. Love me some Neutron.

I'm a bit surprised at this one.  I've heard nothing but great stuff about it, both the trailer and the 'talkin' video had me rolling on the floor in no time flat, but the movie itself just didn't quite deliver.  It was funny, but it had some pretty dry stretches.  Perhaps it stacks up unfavorabely to the ridiculously, amazingly, stupendously, absurdly funny Ghost House which we had just watched, but I just can't see giving this outing top marks.  I wonder if it might improve with further viewings, though.

Wow.  This might be the funniest Riff since Birdemic.  A no doubt about it 10.  First of all, the movie might be the most poorly made I've ever seen....and given that I'm a diehard MSTie and Rifftrax fan, that's really saying something. 

I loved the opening bit with Mike, Kevin and Bill.  I wish they would do that more often.  It was great to see them and very funny to hear their set up of the film.

And:
"I hope you like burnt steak and sh*tty scotch..." is a Hall of Fame riff.

Oh, so very funny. I agree with the other posts here about this being the best in a long time. The shear incompetance of filmmaking craft on display here is really primo MST3K fodder stuff.

I particularly like the shot of our hero apparently trying to saw off the henchmen's head with his karate chop hand. WTF?

And the fact that our hero, already established in his shirtless scene that he has the mucle tone of Eddie Deezen, going up against a muclebound wrestler looking dude AND WINNING. Yet they clearly couldn't actually show much of the fight to let us know how in the hell he was winning.

A solid 10.  I'm only 24 minutes in but I haven't laughed this hard at a riff in a long time.  Some of their best work.

The part with the massage and the guys riff on the missed pornographic aspect I had to rewind and watch twice.  The part where nobody makes any riffs but Mike is just humming along to the background music was just too hilarious for inexplicable reasons.  I hope the rest of the movie is this good.

This might be up there among my all time favourites.  The movie itself is funny in it's tameness (especially considering how crass a lot of blaxsploitation movies where), it's weird pointless endless scenes and odd villains.  But the riffs are among some of the best this time around, a fantastic marriage of movie and riffs.
