Critic Reviews for Return to Nuke 'Em High
Trashmeister director and co-writer Lloyd Kaufman delivers, if your order includes cracks about Jerry Sandusky and high school shootings along with Troma in-jokes and countless movie references.
Die-hard Troma buffs may be amused by all of this, and by the wink-wink references to such studio icons as the Toxic Avenger and Sgt. Kabukiman.
Mostly, "Return to Nuke 'Em High'' is an occasionally hilarious series of parodies: "Carrie,'' "Soylent Green,'' "Glee,'' "Cat Ballou,'' you name it.
Mr. Kaufman's talent can be debated, but his love for his job is stamped on every garish, oozy frame.
Even if it weren't a quasi-remake of 1986's anarchic Class of Nuke 'Em High, it would still feel borrowed and shoddy: Back is the cheesy green-goo spouting out of heads as students turn "cretin" from toxic food.
Audience Reviews for Return to Nuke 'Em High
First half feels like it could be the best Troma movie yet, but unfortunately it becomes pretty boring about half way through. A shame. Although I'm still excited about Vol. 2
The Troma genre Cuisinart spews out a self-referential, self-mocking gem. So much more effective, affecting, engaging, and sheer fun than seems possible with such a mishmash of elements. Kaufman's skill at making this 'formula' work is unrivaled.
