Everything from old science fiction films to television movie critics is mercilessly lampooned in this bizarre
off-the-wall comedy presented by John Landis. The irreverent attack on contemporary life and the mass media
revolves around a television channel that keeps viewers interested in a 1950's-style sci-fi movie by
interspersing a series of wild commercials, wacky shorts and weird specials. This outrageous film serves up an
affectionate tribute to some of the silliest spectacles ever created in the name of entertainment, featuring
the madcap antics of an all-star cast.
