Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Dr. Clayton Forrester is an evil scientist, who, as a result of a difficult childhood, has chosen to exact his revenge on the world by conducting bizarre, not-so-scientific experiments. His goal? World domination. His plan? Find the worst movies ever made, show them to the entire population and bring the planet to its knees.
As everyone knows, any good experiment needs a guinea pig. Meet Mike Nelson. He's a normal guy, a regular Joe -- perfect lab rat material. So, good old Mike ends up kidnapped by Dr. Forrester, trapped on the Satellite of Love, and he's forced to watch really cheesy movies with his robot pals, Tom Servo, Crow and Gypsy, while Dr. Forrester monitors his mind.
Diabolical, yes. But in the grand tradition of celluloid heroes, past and present, Mike triumphs over the evil Dr. Forrester by actually having FUN with the experiment. How? He does what any other normal, healthy human being does while watching a really bad movie: he talks back to the screen.
