Best time you'll have with a terrible movie.

Great job by the former Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew. This is the second RiffTrax Live I've been to, and both have been fantastic. Highly recommended, especially if you're a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

This was my first live Rifftrax event and it was utterly superb! My son came with me and my best friend (his godmother). He is 16 and we embarrassed him with our loud laughter. I can't recommend this one enough. I can't wait for it to come out our downloadable films. I was so happpy to get out of the house with this film. It kept me from losing it completely.

Laughed out loud probably every 5-10 seconds for the entire movie. These guys are just geniuses. Incredibly funny and witty. Birdemic was soooooooooo bad, but the Rifftrax guys nailed it.

RIFFTRAX: Birdemic

I laugh a lot in life. But....have not laughed this hard at a movie EVER. The "live" riffing was what put it over the top - brilliant - although "Birdemic" itself might be the (unintentionally) funniest movie ever made!! Had a fantastic time!

I laughed so hard I cried

I went with a group of fellow birders, and had intentionally avoided seeing any trailers so I could experience the shock and terror of the birdemic in its full glory at the theater. It definitely helped to have a few drinks in me, and go with a group. Of course the RiffTrax commentary made it that much more hilarious (even the boring first half of the movie.) When the birds eventually appeared (finally!) I laughed more than I'd ever laughed at any movie before! I was glad I hadn't seen any trailers beforehand, so I could really savor that moment. Not sure it would have been as funny just watching it on my own, but in the right context it's definitely worth seeing.
