"To Catch A Yeti" - Now Available!

To Catch a Yeti. To live a dream. To Meat a Loaf. Some things just seem too good to be true. Meat Loaf, in a movie about a bigfoot? But Meat Loaf isn’t playing the bigfoot? Might seem disappointing, until you find out Meat is instead playing the world’s greatest hunter, Big Jake Grizzly, and his prey is a yeti that’s 2 feet tall and makes the puppetry in Mac & Me look like high art. Even calling the yeti a puppet is really an exaggeration, since basically all it can do is sit still and whimper and blink. But that doesn’t stop it from doing some rad skateboard moves1, because hey, it’s the 90s!!! (1radical skateboard moves = someone dropped this stuffed animal disaster on a board and kicked it down a hill)

Against all notions of reason and good taste, a little girl is charmed by the creature and makes him her friend. But there’s also an evil little rich boy (who somehow manages to be even more detestable than the yeti and ‘Loaf COMBINED) who wants the hideous goggle-eyed creature for himself. It all leads to a thrilling hijinks-filled showdown in New York City...or at least, the best fake approximation of New York City to be found in a production so Canadian your screen will ooze maple syrup.

Maple syrup, Meat Loaf, a horrific puppet, and more things you’ll never want to eat again after To Catch a Yeti!

You'll do anything for Rifftrax, but you won't do that?

I was sort of not too excited about this myself until I saw the Meat was in it. Has potential.

This movie was a lot of fun!  Watchable cheese, with great riffing.  The guys were on a roll for this one!  :highfive:

Yet another great "how the hell did this movie even happen" movie! Great riffing.
But not a single Ewok joke? I kept waiting for it and it never happened.

There are some movies so loathsome, not even the Rifftrax can make them enjoyable.

Anata wa atama ga okashii, Miku Fansan. That Rifftrax is far superior.

Wow.  This one was a special kind of painful.  14 minutes in I was checking the time.  35 minutes in, I was like "I mean, we got to be almost done, right?"  But we weren't.  Dear God, we weren't.
