    I still would have liked it if Ash and that girl had that battle before the mess but this is called a true filler of no use.

    3/10.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Didn't mind this episode when it first aired, but I find it really stupid these days. It could be because I'm in college studying film, so I have an idea how movies are made, and they are so never made in a day, even class project short films. In pre-production, everything from scenes to budget have to be planned, and then you go the extra mile and plan for the worst case scenarios. Then you make a schedule and decide which days are best for filming which scenes and is in the actors/actresses own schedules.

    When I was younger, I do recall wondering why it was everyone was shouting out stuff during the filming of the battle scene, which might have been picked up by a boom mic somewhere. And having just recently seen it after so many years, I noticed the director (whose dub name is a botched-up version of "Steven Spielberg") was standing right out front where the camera could clearly see him in the shot. Classy.

    Oh yeah, and he never shouted out, "action" at all in that episode.

    This guy was an annoying idiot, I never liked him from the beginning, and I certainly don't like him now. He's a really bad director, and I hope that "Golden Growlithe Award" is an equivalent of the "Golden Raspberry Award", which is not something to be proud of.

    So yeah, this episode is half-bad, half-entertaining only because no one can seem to make a proper film in the Pokémon world.

    There is something very endearing about these two episodes. The second of course becasue of Meowth's story and this one for the parody of stereotypical movie production. Filler or not - the episodes in Kanto are predominately very comical. That is why they exceed in popularity.

    Katrina was awesome with her Raichu. Seeing Pikachu and Raichu dance was cute. And it was good that the writers focused on Arbok and Weezing, even if it wasn't for too long. And did anyone notice how Pidgeotto looked at one of the final scenes? It was funny looking.

    Good points, but it makes me wonder. The shows producers should know how a movie is made. Perhaps this episode was meant a an in-joke?

    I saw this on the DVD! I was amazed at how they referenced 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'. I Saw What You Ate Last Tuesday! XD

    It would be nice if Ash and Katrina finished their battle. it could've been a good training for Ash....but the whole episode was more focused on movie-making instead of training or battling. I didn't like how Psyduck got the main role, Team Rocket and the director was so annoying in this episode.
    I didn't like how Ash, Misty and Brock shoved each other....just for showing themself in front of the camera. Overall, this episode was just a medicore filler. The only thing I liked about this was the part where Brock grasped Katrina's hand and started flirting with her, causing Misty to pull him away.

    I laughed so hard when Brock said that. As a fan of humor/character moments, I didn't care if it was a filler episode.

    It was pretty funny when Arbok and Weezing didn't get in to the movie. I don't know why.

    I swear, Katrina looked like Kris to me; their designs are so similar. Anyway, I liked seeing Ash and friends help film the movie here, even if I didn't like the drama between Psyduck and Wigglytuff much. Team Rocket's presence also felt like a bit much; their added chaos made this episode feel crowded. Alas, it was an interesting filler at least.

    Yeah, this would've been a much better episode if they weren't here.

    The plot was pretty good imo, especially the parts of the episode with Psyduck. There should be more movie-themed episodes like this one, I really liked it.

    Psyduck playing the movie hero was funny but I didn't like Wigglytuff since she seemed like such a diva and a damsel. The director was fun though. 7/10

    Lol Psyduck got focus here and yet he didn't even develop from it. OS had a knack for giving us pointless episodes like this one.

    Ha ha I liked when Wigglytuff attacked Meowth and Brock, and the dance audition scene was cute. Arbok and Weezing losing confidence was funny and Psyduck starring as the film's male lead was cool. :3

    I liked how the Pokémon Dance Mix song played during the movie dance audition sequence and I've been searching for the full song for years.

    I liked that song myself, tho I didn't even know what it was called since I hadn't heard it in years hee hee. It was fitting here as background music however.

    The director was funny and I liked all the Pokemon interactions and 'dancing', especially Arbok and Weezing.

    The main problem was probably Wigglytuff. It was one of those Pokemon that was such a jackass that you rooted for Team Rocket to capture it. Obviously that couldn't happen, so the heroes having to protect it meant they had to play doormats that never gave it a comeuppance.

    The funny thing is I connect the scene more with making the majority of the 'What Kind of Pokemon are you?' video than the actual episode. XD
