* FridgeLogic: Old!Richard is ostensibly murdered by his brother's goons at the end, so why'd they bother freezing Clone!Richard afterwards? His specific organ recipient isn't around anymore. That said, as a clone of his brother Richard's organs would likely be usable in the event that Senator Knight needed anything. ** Considering how much money, time and effort it would take to raise of just one clone, would you just throw away a perfectly good source of potential organs to provide for a lesser client? It dosen't take any effort to freeze and store them. ** And just how useful is this whole idea anyway? The vast majority of people will go through life never needing an organ transplant. Think of the hundreds of thousands of dollars and decades of time it takes to raise ''each'' of the clones to adulthood, keep them in peak physical condition, and then preserve them on the off chance that one of the important people they were cloned from needs a liver or something on down the line. With that amount of time and resources, surely more efficient (and humane) methods could be found to secure a compatable replacement part. *** It's the Illuminati, they have resources to burn. Plus the other possible uses for clones had yet to explored, not just potential organ donors but also infilitrators, cloned armies, slave labor. Those scientists were't just content to let the clones grow up, they were also "monitoring their interaction," performing all kinds of experiments. Clonus is described as a "self-supporting center of research" after all. *** Transplants might be more popular if there was no chance of rejection (clones being genetically identical to the progenitor, though I doubt it's that simple) and there was a larger supply of organs.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: By and large, most MST3k fans' reactions to the film is that the story has real promise and a better script and direction could have made it a very good movie. MichaelBay does ''not'' count for any of this. !! The [=MST3K=] version has: * AcceptableTargets --> '''Mike''': This is probably the most interest ''anyone'' has ''ever'' shown in Milwaukee. * CrowningMomentOfFunny: If the smoking crotch gags were enough to win over the director of the original movie, they're good enough for us. ** "This is our ''''ool,'''' notice there's no ''''P'''' in it!" said as the goons drown Old!Richard's son in the swimming pool. * HilariousInHindsight: Over the credits, Mike and the 'bots do a faux-Biography of Peter Graves. Not even a week after taping the episode, Graves was the subject of an episode of ''Biography.'' * VindicatedByCable: Appearing on ''[=MST3K=]'' had the effect of bringing the movie more into the mainstream and viewers of this particular episode wrote to Fiveson for support and encouragement in his lawsuit against the producers of ''TheIsland''.

* HoYay: "Can you get off me? I'm feeling a tingling in my little Clonus." * {{Narm}}: Near the end of the movie, when the old couple who rescued Richard chat for about a minute before [[spoiler:abruptly exploding as their house is sabotaged]]. It's so unexpected your first response is to laugh. ** The glaringly obvious use of StockFootage doesn't help.
