So, this movie is about violent juvenile delinquents, and the climactic fight scene takes place at an observatory. Does that sound familiar to any of you guys?

Best riff and one of my favorites is when Terri is asleep in the chair in Grandma's bedroom and as she awakes with a start, Crow blurts out "MITCHELL!".
In the Joel days, they usually would riff "Football Practice!" whenever a character would awaken suddenly. Using Mitchell here instead almost had me on the floor.

I never realized silly string was that painful.
Not a bad movie by normal MST movie standards. Lousy title, probably thought up by the same marketing genius who changed the name of "The Beatniks," from whatever it was supposed to be. And yes, I agree with M&TB that the son was probably the lamest war hero of all time.
The riffing is decent. Lively and sarcastic. My favorite was at the very end of the movie when Crow says "Go ahead, let it out, have a teenage cry wave." Ah, the wit.

I can't believe I've never seen this episode before! Oh my GOD it was funny as hell! The bible reading, the phone ringing disbelief, and an over acting hostage-holder. The riffs on the grandpa were awesome, the cop shooting the guy in the face, and a bunch of other stuff that had me rolling! I loved the episode, and strangely enough the movie wasn't all that bad for the most part. Yeah it was a little boring most of the time, but with the MST3K team it was extremely watchable. I wouldn't count it among my favorites, but it will definitely get some extra viewings in the near future. Good stuff!

"Hard-driving, living room action!"
Pretty good episode. Even though it had its dead spots peppered throughout, the laughs were still there and worthwhile. They did a great job spreading the riffs out among the entire cast rather than concentrating on one or two as they often do. The callbacks to Mitchell and Radar Secret Service (x2) also worked well. Best stuff was hurled at the antagonist Mike and the old man.
Now, seems some people enjoy endless screaming and yelling, but the Dr. F and Frank macing stuff quickly grew irritating. I skipped forward to the stinger because of it. Im wondering if this is where the host segments really started going downhill for me -- they only served to sap the momentum out of the theatre segments. Anyway, still a good episode.
