That was the title of the spoof sequel to Soylent Green from Saturday Night Live.
I watched the original Soylent Green last night and I came to a dissapointing conclusion: it’s really just a terrible movie. I always loved Soylent Green growing up, but it’s really dumb in every significant way. And, as a prediction of the future it couldn’t be sillier. I’ve been reading about the obesity wars lately and to watch a movie dedicated to the notion that –supposedly around the time we are living right now — few adults will ever have seen an apple is too funny. By the way, it’s important to keep in the mind that many of the people who are today policymakers and whatnot grew up believing some of these silly Malthusian horror shows. After all, Paul Ehrlich had predicted in the early 1970s that over 65 million Americans were going to starve to death as part of the global “Great Die Off” which was going to claim over 4 billion people worldwide.
Anyway, I just thought I’d at least like Soylent Green for the campiness of it, instead it mostly just ticked me off.
