Summary: Any story about a bunch of freaks rebelling against the world that rejected them is bound to be a favorite in our eyes...most of the time. Sometimes, there's no hiding how obnoxious they can be. Especially if they're in a comedy straight out of the 90s.

History: Ricky Coogan was your typical obnoxious blowhard of a movie star. Always believing that he was God's gift to man. Then one day, he was assigned to promote Zygrot 24, a toxic fertilizer that, unknown to him, had special mutating properties. He realized too late that most of the Zygrot 24 was being sent to the mad scientist Elijah C. Skuggs, who proceeded to use a special machine to turn him into a two-faced freak. Now, Ricky has to make due with sharing room with all of Skuggs' other mutated victims in the Freek Land. A real cast of snowflakes, these guys are. But unknown to all of them is that Skuggs plans to kill them, and adhere to malicious CEOs so that people the world over can be turned into enslaved freaks just for them with the help of Zygrot 24. Only the freaks can save the day now.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: Many freaks are killed in the conflict, but in the end, the greedy ones are mutated into a single form (a disgusting shoe-like structure), and Skuggs gets mutated into a lady before having to be killed over and over again. Most of the freaks are restored to their original forms thanks to special macaroons.

Powers/Abilities: Stuey is a spirit of sorts, and has a special connection to Ricky.

Weakness: Anything conventional. A special brand of macaroons can turn them back to their old forms.

Scariness Factor: 3-The freaks here range from looking rather cartoonish to being absolutely horrific to look at. Mutated Ricky is a good place to start. But in the end, most of them are perfectly normal, if a bit kooky, folks who are with each other to the end. Now if only they weren't so annoying at times.

Trivia: -Originally, this film was going to be a lot raunchier, with more gross-out humor and one freak that was literally called "the Human Bong". Needless to say, some toning down was in order.

-Mr. T, the Bearded Lady's actor, HATED working on this film, and the filmmakers scrambled to dub in lines and use different actors every single time he walked off the set.

Pity them...for about a few seconds.
Your turn will come soon, sir.

He's not a fan of Arbys, I take it. Well, more of a hater than the usual person.

Life must be never-ending agony for them.

"Simply delicious..." If you don't get it, ask your parents or fellow meme-sters.
