Too many US specific jokes for me that just went over my head.Usually there is a good mix but not in this one I think.Still gave it an extra point for having Bill on it as he can make anything funny.  :-\

I could tell that all three of them were trying so hard to make it funny. It's not easy when nothing happens...for 5-10 minutes at a time.

I agree, Imper1um. While the Rifftrax was very funny, in general this felt like a movie they did because it had just come out on DVD. Which doesn't make much sense, what with Dragon Wars and others that have come out recently.

Still, quite funny.

Whoa, MN.  You're usually rounding up from a 9.7 or 9.8.  This really wasn't your kind of Rifftrax.

I'll get around to this one in acouplethree days, and add another data point.

Not a good choice of movie for a Rifftrax.  It was funny sometimes, but this is the rare Will Smith movie that I liked.

Later than I expected, but only because I was distracted by other Rifftrax.  ;)

8/10.  Some real laugh-out-loud monents for me, but also some pretty uneven patches.  This was a problematic movie to riff, and it shows in places.

And thinking about the movie afterward, I began wondering.

Couldn't decide to give it a 9 or an 8, but went with 8.  I agree that it's too topical about recent events - the best are more "timeless." But it did have me laughing out loud and I love all the dog riffs.  Then again, Sam the dog is the best thing about the movie.  (Yes, I love dogs!)

Gave it a 7.  A solid trax but a few dry spots. They made way more out of a film with basically one guy and a dog than I would have ever thought possible. I have to stop underestimating these guys. And the dog jokes never got old.

We just watched this one on Sunday night and... well... we didn't like it.

It's not my least favourite Rifftrax, but it's down towards the bottom.

There were so many non-joke jokes. The first half an hour wasn't bad, then it went downhill from there, the last half an hour was almost laughless for us.

Sorry guys, but this was the first dud in a while, and we watched a couple of shorts first, and they were HILARIOUS, so I don't think it was because we weren't in the mood.

Oh well, we still need to catch up on Alien and X-Files, and they both look great!
FINE

Agreeing with the above.

The jokes were a bit thin and sparse. It wasn't so bad that I couldn't get through the whole movie, and I may have chortled once or twice, but all in all it was meh. I give it a 6.

"Snausage" jokes never get old, even if recycled from MST3K 510 "The Painted Hills."
