It’s rare to find a movie quite like 1965’s “Fun in Balloon Land.” There’s barely a story there, and literally half the movie consists of cable-news-level coverage of a local Thanksgiving parade. Ostensibly it’s supposed to represent a child’s dream escapade into the titular dreamscape, but there’s no narrative thread to be found here. The Rifftrax gang have noted that they consider this a highlight out of the movies they’ve covered and it’s not hard to see why. The movie has a 1.1 rating on imdb… and that’s pretty generous. The Rifftrax episode however, is not to be missed.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
