‘MST3K’ and quality films — The stars of ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ name recent films sillier than their own

Posted on

We asked the cutups from Mystery Science Theater 3000, who made an art of making silly ’50s movies even sillier, to name a silly recent movie — other than their own.

Mike Nelson:Ed. I was on the way to the theater and they had canceled it by the time I got there.”

Kevin Murphy (voice of Tom Servo): ”There’s a spooky parallel between Matt LeBlanc and Tony Danza, who did Going Ape.”

MN: ”He should have asked Tony, ‘How did the ape movie work for you?’ and Tony could’ve said, ‘Kid, don’t do it.”’
