After witnessing the destruction of the giant killer squirrel Tromie, school reporter Roger Smith and his subhumanoid girlfriend Victoria succeeds in baby making and delivers birth to twin boys. Without their knowledge, one of their babies gets stolen from them on the day of delivery by the evil professor Holt and an evil corporate businessman Dr. Slag.

Roger and Victoria raises a peaceful and good hearted boy named Adlai, while the evil ones raises the bad twin Dick to be an evil militant…. well, dick. Both of them become full adults very quickly and also seem to have superpowers thanks to their mother’s subhumanoid gene. When Dick’s evil plans of destruction and chaos sets in motion, it becomes up to Adlai to save the day.

If it weren’t for the passing of the three years between this and the second Class of Nuke ‘Em High film, then I would have assumed that they were filmed back to back. Plenty of both cast and crew were involved in both films and they also have the same feel to it.

I didn’t think too much of the first sequel and I think even less of this one. Like the second film, this one also tries to be more funny than gross and unlike that one, I just didn’t find this funny at all. It’s sadly just too corny and not executed well enough. The funniest part is actually the credits and no, it’s not because the movie is done but they changed the names of people and just had fun with it instead of rolling the regular white text on black background like 99% of all movies do.

The story sucks. Yeah, the evil twin things could be a decent subplot but everything else is so messy and it doesn’t help that some of the story goes back and forth either. It’s poorly told and gets dull very quickly. There are more screenwriters credited than probably paid actors, how could they fart out something as crappy as this story?

I wasn’t to keep on Brick Bronsky when he was the lead in the second film and here he shows up in several roles. He plays Roger Smith, who is now the good mayor of Tromaville and he also plays both twins. Although he works as the evil twin… Dick, he is still not very interesting when he portrays good people. I still like Lisa Gayle as Professor Holt. She wasn’t used as much in this film, which was a shame. The general acting in this film is just as lackluster as anything else on this production.

Eric Louzil is back as a director and he seemed to be very uninspired here. There doesn’t seem to be any effort in delivering entertainment with this material at all. The movie feels like it lasts for three or four hours instead of it’s 100 minutes.

Class of Nuke ‘Em High III: The Good, The Bad and The Subhumanoid is a poor end to something that started out as a great trilogy for Troma. It feels like it lacked director and heart and when even the comedy doesn’t work anymore then it’s time to put it to rest.
