Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (1953)

Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (1953)

Directed by: Charles Lamont

Starring: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Robert Paige

Yes, it”s the same old standard sort of Abbott and Costello antics, and no they don’t go to Mars, and yes Lou Costello dresses like a king. HOWEVER! There are lots of really hot women from the 50’s in spacesuits in this film. Which is pretty neato.

Two idiots accidentally steal a spaceship and believe that they blast off to Mars, but actually end up in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and pick up a couple bank robbers. Then they go to Venus on accident, which is apparently inhabited entirely by swimsuit models who are starved for male companionship. After five minutes of being there, these guys screw the whole thing up for all men everywhere, and go back home sad. SOUNDS LIKE MY FRIDAY NIGHT!!! AAAAAAAA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

This wasn’t a bad movie, but I saw it on TV as part of a program called “Svengoolie“, which is just the worst goddamn thing I have ever seen. Every time the interstitial material came on, I wanted to shoot my TV. Well, it wasn’t my TV, but you know what I mean. It’s not extremely complicated or anything. It was bad, is what I’m saying.
