The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is a 1987 fantasy film based on the children's trading card series of the same name.

If it weren't for the fact that 1987 gave us Jaws: The RevengeSuperman IV: The Quest for Peace, and Leonard Part 6, this thing would have probably cleaned house at the 8th Golden Razzies.

Plot[edit | edit source]

An abused 14-year-old gets manipulated by a Saved by the Bell reject, while trying to find the friends of disgusting garbage-can-dwellers from outer space.

Tiradesverse tropes[edit | edit source]

  • Protagonist? - Dodger, Tangerine and the Kids
  • Courtney - Most of the Kids, as well as Juice's henchpeople
  • Guy Banter - Juice, who is quite possibly the god of all Guy Banters
  • Box of kittens - The gang that is constantly after Dodger
  • There Are No Police - If there were, none of this movie would have happened
  • Curious Quartet - The Juice Crew and Tangerine
  • Finer Cronies and Goons, Inc. - The aforementioned friends of Juice
  • Sequel That Will Never Happen
  • New Santroitcagobergville - It takes place in Pennsylvania, but who the fuck knows where?
  • Tonal Shift from Hell - A truly amazing example that is so horrific, it manages to happen ALL IN ONE SCENE: Manzini tells Dodger that they were too late to save the GPKs' friends and makes a hand motion that flat-out says they were crushed to death inside a garbage truck. While he says this, goofy, happy-go-lucky slide whistle music is playing in the background. Further, Dodger is completely nonplussed at hearing this horrifying news.
  • Gumballs of Doom - A skateboard in this case
  • Sudden Character Stupidity Syndrome - Tangerine just decides, for literally no reason at all, to help her asshole boyfriend kidnap and imprison the creatures responsible for all of her outfits she's showing off at her show.
  • Bewildering Mercy - Dodger is rightfully beating the shit out of Juice, and just decides to stop because......reasons
  • Evil Group Laughter - An exception to the "group" part of the equation--Blythe's evil laugh is so poorly acted, it was deemed worthy of being an example of this trope in and of itself.
  • Edited at Gunpoint - Pretty much every scene "transition", but none are worse than the GPK's breaking into a random song out of nowhere.
  • Plot Armor - Dodger survives being doused in raw sewage while having open wounds
  • H.U.R.T. - See above. He recovers in a matter of about an hour.
  • Casio Keyboard - The entire movie. I mean, it was the 80's, so...
  • Nontendre - "Chicks is chicks!" (Greaser Greg)
