Cecil looks at Suburban Commando, another cheesy relic of the ’90s, starring Hulk Hogan as an alien mercenary who comes to Earth for vacation and rents a room from Christopher Lloyd and Shelley Duvall, and soon they find out that space bounty hunters are after him. If you like Hulk Hogan movies with random appearances by mimes and cantaloupes, this is the movie for you!

  • Every time they say his name I keep thinking they’re saying “Chef Ramsey”. Obviously this movie was made before Hell’s Kitchen came out.

      lol just a weird coincidence. I do wonder if there is a reason behind the name…I mean, Shep? An odd one for sure.

  • Brian O’Connell

    Well, there was ONE Hulk Hogan role that was in a big screen flick, as Thunderlips in Rocky III.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Classic. When I was little I swore his name was Thunderwolf for some reason.

  • Most people say Andre the Giant gave the best performace for a wresler in The Princess Bride!!!

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Maybe not the best performance by a wrestler but definitely one of the best movies to star a wrestler.

    Is this a new review, because I noticed you went back to the old intro.  As for the movie, I’m surprised you didn’t mention that Laser from American Gladiators was one of the bounty hunters.  The one scene that still makes me laugh whenever I see it is the Undertaker with the toilet bowl seat around his neck…talk about a weird movie for the Undertaker to be in. 

    Also, the WCW movie Ready to Rumble is a Good Mad Movie too…so much cheese and once again, David Arquette helped to kill WCW in that movie.  DDP was absolutely hilarious in the movie though, it’s a movie that is so outlandish it can’t help but be entertaining (Perry Saturn said on his website back awhile ago that every performance in that movie was bad…his included).

      This was an old one. I didn’t have a new episode for this week so Albert posted an older one that was never on the site.

      I’ll have to watch Ready to Rumble again. When I saw it I didn’t like it but I was kind of anti-David Arquette there for a while. He did win me over in 8 legged freaks though.

        Not to mention Oliver Platt is in it. I like him…

        • Cecil_Trachenburg

          I like Platt too but he seemed horribly miscast in RTR. When I think Wrestling champion, I think someone like The Rock or Hulk Hogan, not a big fat guy.

          EDIT: and yes I know there have been “fat guy” champs in the past but they usually were gigantic like Andre the Giant or The Iron Sheik.

          • Joseph Tedesco

            You’re right! When you look at the poster with Arquette and Caan in a headlock, you expect a muscle-bound behemoth. With Platt… well, at least he has some charm :-P.

          • Cecil_Trachenburg

            Exactly. I think Platt is at his best when he plays a corrupt politician…which is about 90% of his roles these days. heh

    Glad you didn’t do a certain forced meme pertaining to this particular film. I kept bracing for it but it never came.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I purposely dodged that one. No need to do something that has already been done to death.

  • Mike

    Ah the good ol’ PKE meter, also seen in They Live. A totally awesome cheesy film I think you should put on the list for review. 

    Maybe there’s something about wrestlers turned actors and that prop that go hand in hand. 

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Yep, I think the prop guy was just loaning it out all willy-nilly!

  • bbally

    This is possibly the only decent Hulk Hogan movie, the film for the most part is above average compared to your typical Hogan film but has enough so bad it’s good moments to make more than just an average film.

    No reference about one the bounty hunters being played by the Undertaker?
