Read it and Weep

There's only one movie that Mystery Science Theater 3k said was too bad even for them.  Fortunately for them, they never had to watch the inevitable film adaptation of of Fifty Shades of Grey.  Like our other experiences with movies commonly considered to be the worst, Manos was surprisingly fun.

Somewhere in the Texas desert, a family of amateur actors stumbles on a hand-themed sorority with a meth-head-butler and a guy with a mustache who orders everybody around.  After some arguing and a brief chase scene, mustache forces the meth head and the male actor to switch places.  Thus is Manos: The Hands of Hands.

We try to determine our own fate by discussing our love for, and the tragedy of, Torgo.  Never has a minor character so stolen the show as this loveable sader.  We also try to summarize the movie in under 10 words and fantasize about a Downton Abbey / Manos mash-up.
