Eric’s Bad Movies: ‘The Ice Pirates’ (1984)

SHARE

“The Ice Pirates,” which is the subject of this week’s edition of Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com, is another film that I’d never heard of until I asked for suggestions for the column. Several people mentioned it, which is always a good/bad sign (good fodder for the column, but really bad to watch).

It seems to be one of those movies that people watched a lot as kids. I don’t know if it was actually marketed toward children or if that’s just who found it entertaining, but it’s kind of dirty to be a kids’ movie. It was rated PG, but only because PG-13 hadn’t been invented yet; it has a good number of dirty jokes and castration references, plus a sex scene. Also, it’s stupid and terrible. Don’t let your kids watch it! In fact, don’t let anyone watch it.
