|Man eating dessert whip and militant groups! A new taste sensation is sweeping the nation, it's "The Stuff!" I liked the beginning of this movie, some old guy finds nasty white stuff bubbling out of the ground - SO HE TASTES IT! Mmmmm, that's good, we should sell this to people. Then you have the "greedy old men" of the ice cream industry hiring an investigator, who appears to be a complete moron, to learn the inside scoop about the new treat. "The Stuff" makes you hungry for more and soon takes over your body, leaving only a empty shell filled with ambulatory cream. To top all this off (not with a cherry you rube) it is a militant group which ultimately saves humanity by defeating the "whipped" zombies! Extremely fun film for your bad movie sweet tooth.
|Things I Learned From This Movie:|| |
- Kids who are unruly should be sent to bed with a pint of dessert.
- Reddish-brown cowboy boots do not go with gray suits.
- Dogs love whipped cream but it pisses them off.
- There are a darn lot of cars from PA in New York City and NJ.
- Non-dairy creamers are bad, real bad. (glazed expression) Support your local dairy farmer... ...he is your friend... ...cows good...
- It is possible to slap someone unconscious.
- Militant groups travel by taxi.
- 2 mins - Okay, so the old guy finds this stuff bubbling out of the ground, in the middle of a mining facility, and starts eating it? How did he get that old being so stupid? Damn you Darwin, it's all been a lie!
- 17 mins - The stuff is kept frozen, refrigerated, and at room temp.
- 48 mins - Jason is hiding atop the bare metal tanker in his red shirt.
- 54 mins - David had to hotwire the truck but now he's starting it with a key?
- 59 mins - Jason really isn't inside that tank is he? I know this was made years ago but those effects suck!
- 74 mins - A huge army of machinegun-carrying extremists invades town and no cops or National Guard?
