      I am now going to review a horrible movie called Garbage Pail Kids.Before, I get into reviewing,let me give a little explanation why it was made. A big thing in the 80s was a fad involving a series of trading cards targeted to kids called the garbage pail kids.These cards were made up of pictures of nasty,and disgusting children.The design of the children were parodies of the well known cabbage patch kid dolls.An exampe of a garbage pail kid would be Valerie Vomit.It was pretty obvious that she has this name because she constantly vomits.Eventually a movie about these trading cards was made in 1987.It was called the garbage pale kids movie.Movie critics such as the Nostalgia Critic usually regard it as garbage.

      Now lets get to reviewing this movie and see why it got the bad rap it did.It stars a young boy named Dodger who is a shy and secluded boy who lives and works for a magician called Captain Manzini.He is an antique owner.Dodger regulary gets picked on by a couple of bullies and is attracted to a female one named Tangerine.Now what does this have to do with garbage pail kids exactly?We will get into that.

      The kids are held prisoner in a garbage can by Captain Manzini because they are rude and cant act right in society.On top of that they are ugly as sin and portrayed horribly by midgets in large costumes.Those are some big problems I have picked out about this movie.Why are they in a garbage can?How did captain manzini find them.Where did they come from?These questions are never answered in the movie.As stated earlier, the characters are horribly designed.Their mouths


      can hardly move and thier movements are stiff looking.Some of them are Valerie Vomit,Foul Phil,Ali Gator and Windy Winston.Foul Phil is a stinky baby and Ali Gator is a kid with a head like an alligator.Windy Winston is a kid who likes to break wind.A negative aspect of the movie are that the kids don’t really do disgusting things that often.For example,Valerie Vomit barfs only one time in the film.This is ultimatly what kids wanted to see in the movie.

      There are other problems involving the plot as well.The garbage pail kids eventually become friends with dodger and help him get liked by Tangerine by designing them clothes.It turns out Tangerine is a fashion designer and Dodger gets the kids to design clothes for her fashion show.Dodger thinks Tangerine likes him but he is just using him for her personal gain.First off,why do the garbage pail kids design clothes?Why would they have the need to do that if they were trapped in a garbage can most of thier time.It dosen’t explain where they learned it either.A section of the movie explains that the garbage pail kids have other garbage pail kids locked up in a place called the state home for the ugly.It is essentially a prison for ugly people who are captured in nets off the street and taken to.Why does this place exist?There is really no reason it should.The governent would never fund a sadistic institution like this in reality.It is also noticable that there are actually no other garbage pail kids there.

      There is just a santa claus look-alike and a clown.Also,another thing that is wrong with this movie are the bullies that pick on Dodger.He is a really young kid in his early teens and they look they are about 26.This includes Tangerine.Why do they find the need to pick on somebody like that.They can’t really get much money from him.If they were real gangsters they would probably spend thier days dealing drugs instead.The relationship between Tangerine and Doder in the movie is also disturbing.Tangerine has the look of a grown woman who seduces young Dodger several times throughout the movie.Methods including breathing close to his neck. A real disturbing part of the film is a song the garbage pail kids sing while designing clothes for Dodger.The song is very poorly made.For one thing,it really has no place in the movie since it isn’t a musical to begin with.The melody is a cheesy 80s pop melody.It sounds like the creators didn’t care what it sounded like and composed what was on the top of thier head.Another thing wrong with the song is the kids are singing about working with each other as if to teach kids a lesson about team work.However,at the same time they are robbing a store for the design materials they need.

      All of these things among others make this movie and eyesore to watch .The plot has little thought and innovation.It is not very wise to see this movie.If you have kids,please don’t pick up this film for them.They will most likely hate it.Leave it on the shelves.
