From what I hear, the portrayal of blacks in that film was worse than SOS.

I've never seen "Lion King."

But c'mon! Aplle Dumpling Gang! There's nothing bad there. Good clean wholesome fun--and really funny!
Honestly I don't care if SOS is released or not. I personally find it repugnant, but admittedly, it may be because I grew up with a lot of racist crap thrown in my face. I guess I'm a bit sensitive about it. I've never seen Birth of a Nation or The Apple Dumpling Gang. Heck, my wife was appalled when I told her I had never seen the Goonies. (She went out, bought it and made me watch it).

But movies so bad they're fun to watch...heeheee...try "Skinheads: The Second Coming of Hate". Or "Tougher than Leather" (with Run DMC!!!). Wait, don't try them...both of those movies sucked. But believe you me, if you watch Killjoy bring a friend a 6 pack.

Or try Future War or Space Mutiny. I saw both w/o the MST3K treatment....but if you watch the MST3K versions, they will soften the blow.
