Beam me up Scottie...to Canada, 30 March 2006
Author: marbleann from Houston

I just saw this flick on Fox movies since it first came out. I loved it. First I want to say there is no Fly in this movie. It is about the son and the grandsons of the original creator of the Teleporter machine. The Delamber family. The time line is way off because Brian Donlevy is the son and he is way too old to play him. If my recollection is correct the original Fly took place after WW II. The grandsons are more age appropriate. I just think the Producers needed a famous name for the movie and Donlevy was available. He does play the obsessed scientist very well though. He doesn't care how this life is affecting his sons. One, Albert is very troubled by his dads pursuits. He doesn't have much to do during the movie because he is in London and he just is used as the other half of the teleporter operator.

Seems like this is a great high tech way of smuggling illegal aliens ,beam me up Scottie. Because the old man is in England in the beginning of the movie but he cannot legally return to Canada because of all of his hanky panky, his passport has been absconded by the cops. So the teleporter is used to get him back into Canada. Albert has a very important role at the end of the movie but before that all we know is that he is not a happy camper. I am not going to spoil the ending. When Dad gets back home he discovers that number 1 son has taken a wife. This scene is great. The old man is telling the son that it is impossible that he got married because his new wife will bring attention to the family and their experiments. Well the son tells dad that she has no family or friends so no one will look for her. Just as he is saying this to his father the screen cuts to a scene where we see a woman talking to the police about looking for this woman. Well it turns out it was his wife. So now the cops are coming to the Delambres.

After that her life with the Delambres goes downhill. Her husband is summoned to the police about the missing woman while he is gone, she discovers something is not right in the old backyard. I will not tell what happens. But the movie has enough going for it to please most fans of these types of movies. We even have a little Jane Eyre and Rebecca story mixed up in the movie. You will know what I am talking about when you see the movie.
