Hoo boy!

I thought it was great. But that last 10 minutes. WOW! A real test of ones mettle. I spent most of that looking at the cover of my newly bought Directors Cut of Alien, thinking to myself, hey LIE is in the middle of Alien. So, broken down into sentence form, it reads, A Lie N. Who is this N person? Is it one of the Men in Black? Perhaps its the guy that comes next in rank after Judy Dench/ Bernard Lee at MI6? Oh dear god, they're still on that static shot. That's not even his voice!!!

It's over? It's over. OK.

I can't decide if it's better or the same as the first one, guess I'll go with better, it was more constantly funny until that horribly long boring ending, times like that is when having the bots helps so they can go nuts or something.  Speaking of bots nice gag about them in the intro.

I thought there were lots of missed opportunities for jokes, but with a movie this bad there's no way they could hit them all.

That ending ranks up there with "SANDSTORM"!

I thought this was better than the first release.  What helped was that the movie was more likeable (if that makes sense) then the Oozing Skull, even if it was a mess of a film.

"Mess of a film" is an understatement...  If you look at the history of it the people that started it in 1967 ran out of money, it sat on the shelf until 1972 when some other people finished it without any of the origional cast.  I wonder what the origional ending was supposed to be like?

Watched it again, certainly better than the first one.  But I must say so far with CT there have been no side splitting moments, so they still have some catching up to do with Rifftrax.

I agree. Rapid fire riffs from start to finish.

Besides the teleprompter, it also looks like Frank and Mary Jo have holes in their butts.  Very distracting.   ;D

The fact that this movie was less bleak than Oozing Skull certainly helped it. I enjoyed this one a lot. Bring on the third! :^)

HEY! >:(

I just noticed this: I payed $2.53 for S&H through PayPal, but the postage cost on the DVD box says $1.85..
I could've used that $.68 difference for GAS! :P

Is This Another Communist Plot Uncovered?! :grr:

S&H stands for Shipping and Handling. If anything, they're charging too little.
