Product Description

Amazon.ca

Movies with "wacky" titles are almost never any good, and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! was intentionally made to be an instant golden turkey. Despite that, and the grade-Z production values, this is a regularly funny film. You need to be a fan of the kind of low-budget horror movie it's spoofing, and you need to be very forgiving of the technical ineptness and frequent clunkers, but it works. The story? Well, tomatoes attack, basically. Jack Riley and the San Diego Chicken are in it, and that genuinely alarming helicopter crash you see in an early scene was a real accident. Seen now, the whole ratty affair brings back agreeable memories of the circa-1978 college-movie/midnight-cinema era, when seeing this film was virtually unavoidable. The sequel, Return of the Killer Tomatoes! (with a young George Clooney), is actually an even funnier film. Director John De Bello would continue to squeeze the Tomatoes franchise for years to come. --Robert Horton

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING!!! Sept. 23 2003
Format:DVD
Fans of the original cut of this movie will want to steer clear. This is the awful director's cut that was released by Buena Vista. There are some scenes from that not in it, but there are some that are. Most prominent and annoying are the sound FX and dubbed voices from that release which completely ruin the movie. Nowhere on the package or DVD itself does it say this is the director's cut but I can assure that is what it is. Releasing the director's cut of this beloved movie is one of the worst decisions ever in DVD history and whoever had the bright idea to do this should be shunned. Teach them a lesson by refusing to buy this edition. If I had known ahead of time this was the director's cut I would have turned my back on this release instead of anticipating it. Now, here I am halfway through the movie and full of rage. Shame upon John Debello, shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected for such a dumb premise Jan. 10 2012
By Corpse
Format:DVD
the movie starts out great with some script comparing the film to hitchcocks 'the birds'. and the laughter continues throughout. I wasnt expecting it to be as clever as it was and it held the same goofy comedy style as 'airplane' and 'im gunna git you sucka'. The characters are good and the its just straight out silly the whole way through, my favorite part was "actually technically tomatoes are considered fags" haha great watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic only because it was a first Sept. 17 2006
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Tomatoes gone wild consuming unsuspecting humans. Can our government find a solution before it is too late? And will that solution be worse than the red minus?

This is a high budget film but they pocketed most of the money so it would not be pretentious. It was filmed in San Diego, California; this will soon become the location of the avocado jungle of death. Many great actors wanted to play the main parts but they were turned down so that they would not out shine the tomatoes; David Miller got the position of Mason Dixon

This film is so innovative that you will see the themes used over again in many movies to come such as "Mars Attacks." Notice how real the media interviews are; they look just like what you see on TV News today, as they brow beat the victim. And how many times have you see the use of sophisticated music to squelch the savage beasts?

While watching this film a co-watcher took advantage of the situation and snuck up behind to roll tomatoes past me.

Return of the Killer Tomatoes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired Lunacy July 24 2011
Format:DVD
When I first saw AoKT more than 20 years ago this riff on all B-movie cliches had me convulsed with laughter. So I bought one for a senior friend as a gift. We watched it to our mutual delight with the quasi-serious acting, the mock Musical moments and craftsmanship that went into this incredibly BAD good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY! July 13 2004
Format:DVD
Even thought the movies plot's not that great, the film itself is so funny you can't help but love it. The songs are incredibly stupid, so are the characters, storyline, and pretty much everything else about the movie, but it's great! It even has great sequals! At least that's something Hollywood's never done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Who made the salad? March 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Yes, there are movies made to be bad. The producer of this film made a wholehearted and sincere effort to make this the most appalling and repugnant movie of all time. I'm not sure of the success since I can't make comparisons; I don't usually waste my time or money viewing these types of films. Here we get to see the havoc wreaked on one of California's finest cities, San Diego. It left me to think where the Padres and Chargers would play their home games and where the Marine Corps would relocate their west coast boot training facilities if the tomatoes succeeded in destroying the city. If you are entertained by these types of flicks, you won't be disappointed by this one. Did they ever make a sequel where the tomatoes attacked Camden, New Jersey to get their revenge on the Campbell Soup Company?

1.0 out of 5 stars Definitely NOT a good/bad movie March 7 2004
By Yarby
Format:DVD
Some movies are so bad, they are good...unintentionally. However, this movie actually tries to be funny and fails miserably. It is neither funny through its intended satire, nor funny because it is bad. It is just plain bad.
To get an idea of the concept of this film, picture a movie trying to be like "Airplane" or "Naked Gun". Add to that production values equivalent to a 70's porno movie.
Despite it's "reputation"....this is one to avoid. Get your kitsch elsewhere.
