New York, 1980: airplanes have replaced cars, numbers have replaced names, pills have replaced food, government-arranged marriages have replaced love, and test tube babies have replaced ... well, you get the idea. Scientists revive a man struck by lightning in 1930; he is rechristened "Single O". He is befriended by J-21, who can't marry the girl of his dreams because he isn't "distinguished" enough -- until he is chosen for a 4-month expedition to Mars by a renegade scientist. The Mars J-21, his friend, and stowaway Single O visit is full of scantily clad women doing Busby Berkeley-style dance numbers and worshiping a fat middle-aged man. Written by

I want Fox to do what they can to make a good restoration to the print of this film, clean up the sound, and release it on DVD so I can buy it and watch it whenever I want to.
This movie is incredibly bad, but it is just oh-so entertaining to watch.
It was shown on TV Ontario as part of a 'guilty pleasures' theme in 1980. It is the kind of movie you're not supposed to like but I liked it anyway. I would like to see it again. I would like to be able to show it to people who haven't seen it yet.
I mentioned to another person that I would like to see this out on DVD. He said, "If that happens then only you and I will have copies of it." I think how well a DVD of this would sell would depend to a very large extent on how it was promoted.
