Riffers great, everything else sucked

Mike, Kevin and Bill are the best movie riffers ever! The riffing on the short about stewardesses and on Plan 9 was great! The opening act with the guy playing guitar was horrible and not at all funny or interesting. I realize they'd like to have some sort of audience participation, but this is NOT the way to go. The faux commercials were terrible too and worse than mediocre YouTube stuff. It's 3rd grade humor and seemingly endless duration is also not consistant with Rifftrax in any way. Do yourself a favor. Skip the first 30 minutes and show up just before Plan 9. The guitar guy and the commercial guy absolutely suck and I could tell by the rest of the audience that I wasn't the only one that felt that way. I've been to 3 Rifftrax Live events now and have enjoyed all the movie riffing enough to keep attending, but the opening acts have always been bad. I expect more (or less) from these time fillers. C'mon guys, you can do much better.

This movie is terrible, but the comments made by the guys make it hysterical. A couple of times they were a bit off-color, but most of the time it was just too funny. People in our theatre were laughing nearly constantly.

Very funny take on a horrible film. I could have done without the musical interludes, though the tunes were clever enough. I hope there are more RIFFTRAX live shows to or two a month would be great!!!

Riffing on a movie as bad as Plan 9 is difficult, but the RiffTrax crew brought it to a new level of fun. It was my birthday treat to myself and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am looking forward to their next event.

Problem with sound in theater

Riffs were excellent as always. However, sound only came from the left hand side of the theater. Nothing came from the speakers on the right.
