I guess that the biggest joke here, aside from the whole Killer Tomatoes concept, has to be the casting of Rick Rockwell as our star.

As you may remember, Rick Rockwell was the “Millionaire” in the ill-fated TV special WHO WANTS TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE. He chose Darva Conger from the contestants and they were wed at the end of the show. It didn’t go well.

An annulment was granted and they went their separate ways. Rockwell continued in his comedy career and Darva, well, she milked it for what it was worth as well. A spread, so to speak, in PLAYBOY, some radio work and God knows what after that.

Anyway, Rockwell did this film before all that Darva stuff blew up in his face. Make of that what you will.

John Astin returns as Professor Gangreen, this time to make another attempt at world domination through his tomato buddies.

As it was pointed out to me a long time ago, it’s really hard to hate a movie when it’s intentionally made to be bad.

Worth having for the double novelty value of Rockwell and giant BLT sandwiches.
