too soft for a Sci-fi fan
8 March 2000 | by (Kladno, Czechia) – See all my reviews

Nice looking ladies, brief nudity, acceptable (extraterrestrial) kids with a robot nanny, a few special effects and a confusion of genres: A comedy with piles of dead bodies ? Sci-fi built on one person's imagination ? Still, there are some nice moments, e.g. the girls locked up in the kitchen with the "bleeding" monster. The prevailing impression is "soft". Take your grandchildren to view this movie.
