A fine example -- perhaps the best available -- of "B"-movie overlord Roger Corman's "Weekend Wonders" from the producer/director's early career (see also the original Little Shop of Horrors), this horror-comedy was also the first of beloved actor Dick Miller's dozen-odd portrayals of the character Walter Paisley. A geeky waiter and busboy at a happening Beatnik café, Walter is intensely jealous of the swinging social lives of the artistic types who hang there. A bizarre twist of fate changes

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A monolith of lowbrow entertainment from the days when cheap movies could be made and marketed cheaply.
One of Corman's best.
Classic Corman camp comedy, with the original Dick Miller performance as Walter Paisley.
