Every quarter century or so a project comes along that so perfectly unites artist and medium that one can only stand in wonder and proclaim, "Wow, Sandra, when was the last time something this magical came along - quarter century or so, wasn't it?"
So it was with Michelangelo and marble; Paderewsky and piano; And so it is with this RiffTrax, uniting THE legendary dinosaur movie of our time and THE weirdest "Weird Al" Yankovic of our time into one harmonic convergence of RiffTastic Jurassic WeirdAlistic bliss!
RiffTrax would like to say, timidly and with all humility, YOU MUST GET THIS RIFFTRAX! IT'S WEIRD AL, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! YOU CAN FIND COPIES OF JURASSIC PARK ON BUS SEATS! Mike and Weird Al join forces on the most colossally funny RiffTrax yet!
*As with all RiffTrax, this was tailored to be age appropriate to the movie itself. That is, we feel confident saying that if you're old enough to enjoy Jurassic Park, you're old enough to enjoy this RiffTrax.
RiffTrax are downloadable audio commentaries featuring comedian Michael J. Nelson heckling (or riffing)
films in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The RiffTrax are sold on a web site where users can
purchase and download the commentaries. The site was launched by Nelson and Legend Films in 2006 and is
based in San Diego.
The movies chosen to riff in Mystery Science Theater 3000 were predominantly low-budget B-movies because
the show itself was low-budget and producers could only afford films with expired copyright or had
otherwise cheap licenses. The idea of RiffTrax came about after Mystery Science Theater 3000 was
cancelled when Nelson researched and consulted a lawyer about the possibility of directly releasing
DVDs of films with the commentaries included, but realized that he would be "sued out of existence".
The best-sounding method of distributing the commentaries would be to sell them independently of
the films to avoid having to obtain the rights to distribute the movies themselves. There would be
no legal or monetary restrictions to prevent Nelson from producing them, though viewers would have
to provide the movies themselves.
