Wow.  That was like, totally awesome!  Easily Mike's best solo effort since Roadhouse, with great riffs on Keanu ("Spray on glue?"), Busey and Swayze.  I think you could tell that Mike missed having a partner help him with the riffing, as DA is all over this one, contributing some fine gags of his own. 

What a stupid, stupid movie.  What a great, great rifftrax.

What a stupid, stupid movie...

I'm going to go out on a limb and admit that I actually kind of like this movie.  This is the second film that I haven't had to rent/buy because I already own it, which is nice.  Having said that, I am still very excited to hear Mike comment on Keanu early in his career, Swayze somewhat washed up, and an always ridiculous Gary Busey.

I like the movie too.  It's much easier to watch than Cocktail or Crossroads.  It's still an extremely stupid movie.  I think it adds a certain quaint charm to proceedings.

Jeez, I might have to go and rent this movie, because Netflix doesn't have it  >:(

Well, at least I didn't have to go up to the counter with 'Crossroads'  :P

  Will somebody please do a "shit" count on this movie?  I think it must be close to the count from the South Park episode.
    It was also brave of the filmmakers to show the nude girls at the drug house since they risked having the audience notice the lack of curves on Lori Petty.
    And we learned it's safe to pull the ripcord at 50 feet!

I haven't seen this movie in quite a long time, and the main thing I noticed is how terrible Keanu's acting is in this movie.  I think that he has grown up quite a bit, and has put in some decent performances later in his career, but he's so wooden in this movie, it's ridiculous.

But Gary Busey is fantastic as always.  I just love watching this guy.

Ewww, this was a stinker. Okay I know all the movies have been stinkers of course, but this was the worst one.

The riff was great as always, but I still kept wondering how much longer the movie had left. God this movie sucked. I would rather watch the 2 Tom Cruise riffed movies back to back, than watch this mess again.

This was awesome. I think this one packed the most belly laughs for me. It's up there with Road House. And Disembaudio's bits were very funny this time around. The "adrenaline updates" at the end were a hoot. This was a long movie, and you could feel the strain building as that last scene dragged on and on. Poor Mike.

Did anyone else sense that Mike seemed "different" without another riffer by his side?...aside from the fact that he didn't have another riffer by his side.
What I mean is with XMen and TopGun he sounded much more relaxed and it sounded like he was having alot of fun. But in PB he didnt have that same 'relaxed' level of comfort in his riffing.
I hope in the future they can permenantly add Kevin or Bill as a second riffer.

Still a great job and a funny rifftrax. I liked the comment about "what O/S makes that kind of sound". As a computer tech, nothing chaps my ass more then when movies add stupid little sound effects to the computer scenes to make the computer sound more like a computer.

Ya know, when I first heard about xXx, I thought, "Cool! Here's a chance to take in a big blockbuster action flick that I never got around to. It might actually be good on its own!" *WRONG!*

So then came Top Gun, and I thought, "Gee! Top Gun! Never saw that one in the '80s but all my schoolyard chums insisted it was the best movie ever! This might actually be cool on its own!" *WRONG!*

Along came Point Break, and I thought, "OK! The FBI goes after a surfing gang of criminals and it stars Keanu Reeves! This might be that special brand of bad that makes it really enjoyable on its own!"
*WRONG AGAIN!*

I will never trust any Rifftrax movie that I haven't seen. I am now convinced that any Rifftrax movie I didn't see has been not-seen for a reason and should remain that way until there's a hilarious commentary to make it better.

That said, this was a darned good Rifftrax!

I thought that too gammer. I felt like Mike was just reading his lines to himself and not an audience. I found it very dry but it did have a good ribbing here and there. I will have to watch it again to have a full opinion, but this one was probably my least favourite Rifftrax.
