Like most men I love women. I mean LOOOOOOOVE women. Especially looking at women. And the producers and hosts of this show knew it. So its safe to say that they exploited that fact. Not as "sexist" as most people would have you believe. It was actually very funny and entertaining.
Maybe even a little informative. Sort of like Comedy Central's "The MAN Show", but with more women and info about them. I loved the "Perfect 10" magazine models and those "Mini Pageants" they had once a week. The spokes model thing they did every show was a bit annoying. I can't believe those chicks ACTUALLY thought this show was their big break! What air-heads!! (NOTE: If you are a feminist and you just read what I wrote, you'd agree with me if you've seen just one episode. Those bimbos were air-headed and desparate.) The thing that brought the show down was the fact that they kept changing the hosts. Specifically every few months they'd get rid of one guy and hire a new guy (or in one case a WOMAN).
Some blonde that laughed at everything. Jillian Barbarie had frequant guest appearances (she'd literally do ANYTHING for FOX). Seriously. If Fox asked her to appear in this or host that she'd do it. She admitted this. She was hot, but had a VERY annoying laugh. Another downside was the NEVERENDING Product Placements and advertisements. Every other minute they'd tell you to buy something. At first I thought it was their opinions then it became obvious. They'd tell you to buy ALL these electronic gifts for your girlfriend, wife, some chick that lived in th same dorm as you in college. (LITERALLY). They'd say buy her a boombox and that will get you noticed!! I did however learn from this show. Like the back of a woman's knee is an erogenous zone! I have so much more to say, but will save it for another time.
First off, let me point out that I am a white male who grew up in East-Cambridge, MA. It was a very multicultural neighborhood. SO as you can imagine I had plenty of multcultural friends. As a child I loved to watch shows like The Jeffersons, Good Times, Cosby Show, In Living Colour, etc. These were all good shows. But some were criticized becuase they were too stereotypical and oddly some were criticized for not being "accurate" enough. Such as the Cosby Show. I used to ask my friends why can't people make up their minds? Do they want Black people portrayed as ghetto gang bangers in movies like South Central or like high society annunciaters (white people in black people's bodies) like the Cosby Show? They usually looked at me and laughed. After all how do you answer such a Sociological-Philosophical question. Well, anyways, then in the mid-90's came the WB and UPN networks. At first their shows stunk like FOX did in the late 80's and most of the 90's. And then they found their audience! Young people in Urban areas. My kind of neighborhood. At first I jokingly called them "Average Black People Shows". But that sounded ambiguously racist so now I say A.B.P.S. LOL!! They're basically Shows Like Moesha, Parkers, Sisters, which starred Brandy and Diana Ross's daughter (name escapes me). And several others which names I forgot, but they starred Robin Givens, Alfonsa Rivera, Malcolm Jamal Warner, and other African Americans from TOP NBC, CBS, and ABC shows from the 80's and 90's. At first it was GREAT to see them working again, but then it got weird. After all some of the shows still stunk. Mostly the writing and obvious cheap budgets. I mean just look at Homeboys in Outer Space!! Although, I liked others such as the Parent Hood which should STILL be on the air today!! I guess what I am trying to say is I like One on One. It is a good show. It is one of many of those A.B.P.S.'s that are on the air today on the WB and UPN early in the week. Both networks have improved ALOT these past 2 or 3 years and so have their programming, writing, budget and actors are great. Keep up the good work Flex and never do anything like Homeboys in outer space again!! It wasn't
First of all let me tell you that I'm not a pervert. Merely a regular guy that sees a movie cover and says, "WOW! I gotta see this." I was working (more like "helping" out) at a video store when I decided to rent this. The 2 ladies on the cover were HOT and in one picture on the back they were wearing bikinis and in a pool. WELL... NOT ONLY did that scene NOT appear in the movie, but the plot was STUPID!! Keep in mind, EVEN BY EROTIC STRAIGHT-TO-VIDEO standards. It's about a female serial killer that marries guys and kills them. For some reason this other woman is obsessed with newspaper articles about the serial chick. Well one day they happened to meet and... let me just get to the end. It turns out the 2 women were sisters!! No, not long lost sisters. Rather sisters both on the run for killing people when they were teens. Now for some reason they acted like they NEVER, EVER, EVER MET BEFORE IN THEIR LIVES!! What the FUDGE??!! Even as a porno this would make you say, "HUH!" There are other odd moments like the ending (which was totally rushed). YOU CALL THAT A POLICE STATION!! The serial chick, which also appears in Zorrita (where she looks somewhat hot), looks like a MAN who had a sex change in this one. The other woman is hot atleast. Oh and about that back cover. When I finally read it, it actually GAVE AWAY THE ENDING!! How odd?! The actual "shocking" ending these types of movies claim to have. Wonder why I didn't read it before. No wonder that pool picture was there. After I returned the movie someone told me I should have just rented porn. How true.
So many things wrong with this film. Acting, editing, plot, beginning, middle, ending. Even Joel appeared completely disgusted (more-so than usual) when during this one scene in the beginning the family gets stopped by a cop for some reason and the SAME GUY dubs ALL the voices!! "Unbelievable," he says. That was a sign of things to come like the couple making out for 2 or 3 days; cops that always appear to be on duty; dude with the big knees; chicks wrestling (not as good of a scene as it sounds); and what's with that weird music?! Joel and the bots do a great job making this movie entertaining to watch. One of the best episodes of MST3K. Be on the lookout for a cameo from Mike Nelson doing an impression of that dude with the knees. Why would you wanna watch the uncut original??
My God did this movie SUCK!!! Besides everything that could possibly go wrong in a movie, the one thing that REALLY went wrong was the editing. Specifically the adding of that narrator. It was obvious that after the filming of this garbage of a movie the director (or some other idiot) decided to add a narrator throughout most of the movie to TALK OVER key dialogue and explain little inane things in the plot that never came up again. Like how he explain that the couple in the car in the beginning of the movie just got married. SO?? And how later on when they were at home and one of the guy's best buds came over to hang out the narrator spoke over the entire scene to tell us the friend was jealous or something about not understanding why his bud got married. WHY?? I ask you WHY??? It's not like it mattered. Didn't help the plot at all. And worced of all at the end the narrator had to carefully explain what a scientist found out about the aliens (which looked poorly made and were very slow and awkword). Not to say that even without the excessive narrating this movie would have been great. It still would've sucked!! But atleast you could listed to it and not have some guy talking over your shoulder like a now-it-all. This was one of the few Mystery Science Theater movies that even with the bots and company it was STILL a BAD movie!!!
