You can get ANYTHING in the future--except common sense!
2 January 2006 | by (Fountain Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

It's been a long time since I viewed this SF comedy on "Seymour's Fright Night", but I still crack a smile when I remember Joseph the Custodian's return to Earth after 500+ years, and his almost total inability to live in a near-Utopian future without making a total ass of himself. In this surprisingly optimistic version of the twenty-fifth century, poor Joseph winds up being a walking advertisement for every materialist(cough, cough) impulse that lurks in every human being. With Joseph ordering one of practically everything(for free!) from the "World Citizen's Catalogue", one of his minders exclaims, "...why does ANYONE need so many THINGS?" A wry comment on crass materialism that wouldn't be out of place even today. Of course, Joseph still has to justify the State having to put a roof over his head, so with the help of "Adam", his alien companion from his last stopover, the "Blue Star", he proceeds to run a con game on his hosts by leading them to believe that his own brain is the equal of any supercomputer of their time. The complications ensuing were actually quite amusing, such as Adam's misinterpretations of Human Sexual Relations. I've searched SF conventions for a bootleg of this film, just so I can see it again after thirty-odd years...and I refuse to give up! If anyone knows where, PLEASE drop me a line...
