A strong contender for inclusion in a compilation ofMST3K's greatest hits, this roasting of a 1945 morality tale demonstrates how funnyMST3Kcan be when Joel, Tom Servo, and Crow are matched against a blandly well-meaning melodrama. The target for derision isI Accuse My Parents, a typically tacky dose of cautionary "authority" from the poverty-row auteurs at Producers Releasing Corp. (PRC), in which the errant son of alcoholic parents falls for the torch-singer flame of a cut-rate mobster. Since the dialogue is so perfectly atrocious, Joel & Co. provide a steady feast of ad-libs, line extensions, and couch-potato counterpoint, and this time their material is frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious. Pointless out of context but impressively hip against the film's riotous moralizing, theMST3Kripostes (which are also aimed at a vintage grade-school short, "The Truck Farmer") are especially refined for movie buffs, who will benefit most from the rambling retorts of comedy's savviest cinephiles.--Jeff Shannon

A note at the end of this 1944 morality play says it will be shown to American troops in World War II combat areas. I wonder what the Marines at Iwo thought of this little loser.We're also treated to an exciting short about farming.This is an excellent mid-series MST episode. The host segment exploring …
