MST3K (615)

615 - Kitten with a Whip - I didn't think this was a bad movie at all. By a long shot, this is the best of the juvenile delinquent movies MST has covered. It actually had some tension; I didn't know what to expect from it. The Hays Code gave me a pretty good idea on what would happen to the delinquents at the end, but I had no idea what the fate of the would-be senator might be. This was one of those films in which I was paying more attention to the plot than I was to the riffing. In this regard, it was possibly not the best choice for the show.

"There isn't a shower cold enough for this man." Riff-wise, this was a standard episode. There were some laughs and some not-so-laughs. The guys reused the line of thinking from The Violent Years -- that the male hostage is happy to be captured by the pretty lady-criminal -- but it didn't work as well here for some reason. Otherwise, the riffing was perfectly acceptable, even if it didn't produce any gut-laughs.

Kevin: sorry you had to wear that cat costume. You looked absolutely miserable in it. That's where the funny came from, though. Thank you for your sacrifice.
