->'''Tom Servo:''' Well, I see the movie has finally thrown up its hands and said "I just don't know."\\
'''Crow:''' I wanna hurt this movie, but I can never hurt it the way it hurt me.\\
'''Creator/MikeNelson:''' Did they even need to GO to Cuba?
--> --''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'''s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzwVDkLgrts take]]

Film watched: ''Film/RedZoneCuba'', with short ''Speech: Platform Posture and Appearance''

One of the few films that actually ''broke'' the SOL crew, though the Mads didn't notice due to Forrester having been beaten to a pulp by mobsters before the movie began. SanitySlippage was the only thing saving them from the DespairEventHorizon. Even the Mads descended into madness at the end.

!! The ''[=MST3K=]'' presentation contains:

* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: The rest of the world can't wait for Clayton to die, which proves to become difficult, [[{{Determinator}} to say the least]].
* {{Bowdlerized}}: The ''[=MST3K=]'' version thankfully omits the whole "raping the blind-deaf daughter" scene, per the show's "No Rape" policy.
* CallBack: At one point, they say [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S01E04WomenOfThePrehistoricPlanet "Hi-Cuba!"]] during a fight scene.
* CelebrityResemblance: The riffs have remarked on how Creator/ColemanFrancis looks like [[Film/TheThreeStooges Curly Howard]].
* ContinuityNod:
** "[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S04E24ManosTheHandsOfFate The Master says you can't stay here!]]"
** [[Creator/MikeNelson Mike]] and the bots call back to [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S06E09TheSkydivers their previous Coleman Francis experience]] when they recognize "Petey the Plane," which is their FanNickname for the plane from ''Film/TheSkydivers''.
** During "Bouncy Upbeat Song", Crow giggles maniacally in the same way as he did when he had his Underoos returned to him back in the ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S05E20RadarSecretService Radar Secret Service]]'' [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S05E20RadarSecretService episode]].
** At the start of the ''Speech'' short, Crow huffily declares that "''[[Film/TheUnearthly Posture Pals]]'' was the definitive last word on posture".
* {{Determinator}}: Zigzagged. Dr. Forrester's will to live in the third segment fluctuates, but even after being beaten by mobsters a second time, he ultimately pulls through in the end.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: This was the second Coleman Francis film featured. In the first, ''Film/TheSkydivers'', he goes entirely unmentioned, but by starring here he makes himself a running joke (''"Obviously, you don't know who you've captured here - I'm Coleman Francis."'', ''"The Yankees will pay highly for you, Señor Francis"'') and when ''[[Film/TheBeastOfYuccaFlats Yucca Flats]]'' subsequently aired Mike and the bots freaked.
** What's funny is that Mike had used ''The Beast of Yucca Flats'' as a ''warm up'' for ''Film/TheBrainThatWouldntDie''.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: At the beginning of the episode, while reading off lottery numbers, Mike draws a ball with the number 69. Crow looks straight at the camera and says under his breath "69! Hehehe!"
* MemeticMutation: "I'm Cherokee Jack!" would be repeated in later episodes. [[invoked]]
* MockMillionaire: How Mike and the bots are dressed in the first and second host segments, complete with stereotypical rich accents.
* {{Mondegreen}}: Servo mishears part of the movie's TitleThemeTune as "Mundo Penis."
** There's also Chastain's name; the bots mishear it as [[FanNickname "Justine"]].
* NapoleonDelusion: The movie drives Mike to believing he's Carol Channing at one point.
* NegativeContinuity: The episode ends with the entire SOL crew being driven insane by the movie, and with Forrester attempting to kill Frank after being beaten to a pulp no less than twice due to the latter throwing him under the proverbial bus. Everything's back to normal in the next episode.
* NotableOriginalMusic: The "Bouncy Upbeat Song".
-->'''Mike:''' Everybody's having fun and smokiiiiing, and the dogs are eating toooooo... [[BreadEggsMilkSquick robbing people, killing people]]...
* OverlyLongGag: Crow's scream for the old man falling down the well goes on and on.
** Dr. Forrester's "I'm dead/I'm not dead" speech.
* RefugeInAudacity: You'd think Dr. Forrester getting beaten to near-death by a mobster (twice!) wouldn't be funny... You'd ''think'' that...
** The goofy cartoon noises as Forrester gets beaten (and the fact that he's clearly being beaten up by a puppet) help.
* RunningGag: "I'm Cherokee Jack!" and "''[[NoYou You]]'' shove off!" are running gag riffs by Mike and the 'bots.
** In the episode itself, references to Film/TheThreeStooges (see CelebrityResemblance above).
* SanitySlippage: The [[http://www.wayfellows.com/mst3k/bouncyup.shtml ending host segment]].
* SmokingHotSex: At one point Griffin and his two buddies are sitting by the side of the road, smoking cigarettes and looking whimsically. Tom Servo suggests that they just made out.
* SuspiciouslySmallArmy: They get a lot of jokes out of Coleman Francis's inability to put together a convincing invasion force:
-->'''Mike:''' "There's 80,000 of them and seven of us."
* TrappedByGamblingDebts: Why has TV's Frank called up the SOL at the start of the episode?
-->'''TV's Frank''': Oh, hi, Mike. Say, have you ever been in deep with the mob for, oh, ''saaaaaaay''... 50 large?
