Trivia

Writers Harry and Michael Medved worked as consultants on this film, which was inspired by their books, "The Golden Turkey Awards" and "The Fifty Worst Films of All Time". The brothers were so incensed by their treatment by the film's producers (and the end result) that they devoted a small entry to it in their subsequent book, "The Hollywood Hall Of Shame".

Alternate Versions

When this film was shown on N.B.C., it deleted the scenes where Cheech and Chong smoke marijuana as they view anti-marijuana propaganda films. Also deleted was a clip from Wonder Bar featuring Al Jolson and a full chorus in black-face. See more »

It's an interesting documentary. Nothing else.
10 December 2013 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

As advertised, this is truly a documentary with scenes from early, and poor budgeted, 'B' movies dealing mainly with cheap horror films from the 50's. I would not say that this film is outstanding but it was humorous to see the sets and costumes worn in the golden era of 'B' type films with the narrative performed by comedy actors from the early 80's.

I really do not understand how people can say that it was a 'Gem' since the entire film consist mainly of footage from non-classic films with added commentary by the hosts. It was a nice look back at early low-budget films but not much else in the form of entertainment.

The best thing is that nearly all the cheap, low-budget, corny 'B' type movie scenes are now in one place. Other than that not much to see here.

But again it is a documentary and as documentaries go-- it was interesting.
