YMMV: The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: All of the musical numbers, but "Shook Out of Shape (Schick Out of Shave)" and "Choo Choo" in particular stand out. And I mean, stand out. These are sort of justified by the amusement-park cabaret setting, but plot-wise? Zilch. The main characters aren't even present for most of them. Given the quality of the story, however, this may not be such a bad thing, as they allow the audience to see less of the movie.
    • The ticket-selling monkey robot.
  • Ear Worm: " Shook Schick Out of Shape" is kind of catchy.
  • Hollywood Homely: Estrella is supposedly an ugly hag whom even a fat middle-aged drunk wouldn't deign to have sex with. She looks too much like Elizabeth Taylor to qualify as hideous, although that mole is a tad off-putting.
  • Padding: Lots of it. Ignoring the completely pointless song and dance numbers, there are also many extended shots of the amusement park as well as a very long and uneventful chase scene at the end.
