Katy and Eric

These jerks finally got hitched!


Directed by Hal Needham

Written by James Whittaker, Albert S. Ruddy, Hal Needham, André Morgan

Starring Barry Bostwick, Persis Khambatta, Henry Silva

ERIC SAYS: imagine the director of Smokey and the Bandit playing with G.I. Joe figures for 100 minutes. That’s it. That’s the movie. It’s also the movie that put The Gentlemen Hecklers on the map. We’d riffed movies before that, and some of them were pretty good. But this was the one where I felt we had really hit our stride. It also didn’t hurt that this was the one that caught the attention of Joel Hodgson, creator of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I credit Megaforce with our eventual Netflix gig. It just goes to show, The good guys always win! Even in the 80s!

Favorite riff: Patrick doing Don Knotts’ voice any time Barry Bostwick wore an Ascot.
