Lovely piece of eye-candy
19 December 1999 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

I'm still not totally sure of the plot of this of Mad, Mad Planet, and the rather dicey conversion from Italian to English doesn't help much, but it's still a lot of fun. If you are a fan of Austin Powers then you really would enjoy the wonderful sense of design and fashion.

I'd love to hear what the stunt men that had a blow-torch fired point-blank at their chests were paid.
