Eegah (Mystery Science Theater 3000)
Special Offers and Product Promotions
A classic episode of the cult television series (in which an amiable space janitor and his metallic pals are forced to watch and deliver a sardonic running commentary on terrible movies), "Eegah" stars the gargantuan Richard Kiel (who would later become known for his sensitive portrayal of Jaws in a couple of the Bond films) in the title role as a still-kickin' Neanderthal looking for a little love in swinging 1960s California. One of the worst (or best, depending on your point of view) films ever to be featured on the show, this excruciating waste of celluloid provides ample fuel for Joel and the 'bots to deliver a wildly diverse, sustained barrage of hilarity (including an in-depth discussion of the widowed dad dichotomy of '60s sitcoms) at the source material's full expense. Enjoy, and remember to "watch out for snakes." (You'll understand after viewing.) --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Eegah is the role Richard Kiel was made to play, seeing as how he just has to run around in a fake animal skin and growl and mutter incoherently.Read more ›
So for those reasons I assumed that the MST3K crew would be able to turn this trainwreck into a laughterpiece, and while there where some jokes that had milk almost coming out of my nose ("Hey where's they're collection of dead people?") and who could forget the disembodied voice going on and on about snake, it is still painful to watch Eegah.
I would almost argue that this movie is more disgusting than "Manos" (I say almost because I don't want to get beaten up.) Roxie shaves her Dad, does up his tie and then takes him with her to a party. Her "Boyfriend" isn't much better. At any time he breaks out into song and you can't help but join in with Joel and the 'bots for Eegah to beat him senseless.
Maybe it's just me, but this movie even with the crew going at it, and the thankful segment breaks (Which really are hilarious. Joel get's turned into the ugly teen in the movie) is still to painful to be unleashed on an unsuspecting public.
Whatever you do, do NOT watch Eegah without the MST3K crew there to help you.
Oh and Watch out for snakes!
MSTed-movie veteran Richard Kiel returns as the eponymous caveman, who wanders into town in search of the lovely Roxy, whom he had previously kidnapped and briefly held hostage along with her boyfriend and father. Creepy romance is afoot (especially when you realize that Roxy's father and boyfriend are played by Arch Hall Senior and Junior, respectively), along with strange pool parties, strange dune-buggy races, and strange songs sung by Arch Junior. In all, it's just a strange, and kind of icky, movie.
Fortunately, Joel and The Bots are there to lead America back from the foaming mouth of the abyss. Thank you. Thank you. The host segments here are good ones (I've always liked the porkerina), but where J&TB really shine is in the theater, where they spare no effort to give this flick the riffing it deserves.
In all, this is a great addition to any MSTie's shelf.

This movie(and commentary by Joel and the 'bots) starts out slow, really slow and gets funny mid way through. In the end it is great. Arch Hall Jr. provides most of the laughs. Read morePublished on Oct. 15 2003 by chicoer2003
