Trivia: The character name of Professor Arnold Saknussemm comes from the Jules Verne sci-fi novel Journey to the Center of the Earth (on which this movie was very loosely based), which was successfully adapted for the big screen in 1959 starring James Mason, and which was not-so-successfully done again in 1988 by some of the same above cast and crew. In ALIEN FROM L.A., Kathy Ireland goes to the center of the Earth in search of her father with the same name. Get it? Ha-ha. Just as entertaining as the rest of the movie.

Former super-model and current exercise video host, "actress" KATHY IRELAND also appeared in these films: 1988-Journey to the Center of the Earth; 1990-Side Out; Mr. Destiny; 1991-Necessary Roughness; 1992-Mom and Dad Save the World; Danger Island; The Player; 1993-National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1; Amore; 1994-Beauty and the Bandit; and 1995-Backfire.

This was the first "Mike Episode" I ever saw.  And like the poster below, I also saw it on the MTV MST weekend.
Gummo 24/04/2008 07.49.42
Sweeet!  This was the first MST I ever saw also and I thought I was going to laugh myself sick!  Until now I've only had an old videotape with commercials so this is HUGE!

Thank you!
