One of the funniest films featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000 in the Emmy® Award nominated show's 11-year run, Space Mutiny is a hilariously bad sci-fi epic that's guaranteed to have you in stitches. Combine a wardrobe of spandex and tinfoil; a set boasting AstroTurf® and spray-painted floor buffers; and special effects that, well, aren't so special, and you've got one of the most hysterical cheeseball movies to ever come out of the '80s. Grab your friends and have a riot with this underground cult hit!Written by

Yeah, the film industry is not what is was when Ed Wood was directing, and B-movies don't get released in theaters anymore; but they do get released on video. And we should be glad that they do, at least in the case of Space Mutiny, 'cause it may be the single most unintentionally hilarious movie ever made. Don't believe me? Just take a look at these numbers:
# of times our ostensible "hero" screams in panic: 17
# of jumpsuited extras flung into the air with pneumatic catapults: 14
# of insertions of "Battlestar Galactica" footage: lost count around 40
# of previously seen shots edited in:15
# of times the Enforcers refer to each other as "idiots": 7
# of off-the-shelf glowing balls in the Bellarian scenes: 8
# of times Ryder or Kalgon yells at someone to "MOVE!" or "GO!": 26
# of occasions Kalgon starts laughing for no apparent reason: 18
# of minutes you get to watch grown men trying to kill each other with golf carts: 5
# of railing kills: 24 (may have missed a couple)
Don't pass up a chance to see this; one of these days, someone involved with it is going to get embarrassed enough about it to try and have all the copies destroyed.
