"Vile, smelly, rude, ugly" (Variety)—your favorite grime bandits come to life with all the farts, snot and vomit you can take in this hilarious cult classic full of "gross-out humor" (The New York Times). Based on the wildly popular and irreverent trading cards, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie stars Mackenzie Astin ("The Facts of Life") as a perfectly nice teenager who discovers the Kids...to his disgust! When Dodger (Astin) accidentally releases the Kids from their magical trash can prison, all smell breaks loose. Despite their offensive personal habits—and attitude problems—Dodger soon becomes fond of the Kids. But when Messy Tessie, Foul Phil, Valerie Vomit and the whole misfit crew join his fight against thuggish bullies, their efforts just might land them behind bars at the State Home for the Ugly!
