Lee Van Cleef and Timoty Van Patten are back in this "sequel" to their last "movie" about a ninja and his apprentice battling evil wherever they go. During the breaks, Joel and the Bots dabble in improv with hard suggestions from Gypsy, though their act beats the Mads' improv by a mile. To cope with the improv fiasco, the Mads introduce the Buffet Conveyor Belt to help bring the buffet right to the table while Joel and the Bots introduce the Gerbilsphere 2, though the results doesn't quite justify the labor. Later, the Bots introduce their ideas for custom vans based off of Van Patten's from the "movie" and Crow is General Timothy Van Patten. Tom then provides ideas for animal sidekicks for all the fictional TV detectives out there. In the end, Joel introduces the Lee Van Cleef dress up doll (complete with love handles) and Frank insists that ABC bring back "The Second Hundred Years" before Dr. Forrester bashes in his head.

Even MST 3K jokes can't save this stinker
19 October 2019 | by robertmurray-70637See all my reviews

This is one of those "movies" that was created by splicing together two or more episodes from a TV show. MST 3K used a few of those and they all stink. If the movie is not fun to watch, jokes don't help and this movie is both stupid and boring.

Lee Van Cleef plays a martial artist (a Ninja) but he is too old for this role. Yes there martial arts masters this old, but they are teachers not fighters. Timothy Van Patten, Van Cleef's sidekick (and disciple), is a terrible actor and he gets romantically paired up with a series of petite young women who all look like they are no older than 16. We are supposed to like him because he drives a van. I know that sounds dumb, but people in the 1970s actually thought that vans were very cool.
