Quotes

Adrian Beltz: [Beltz is showing the Japanese businessmen around an unfinished part of the building where he awards are being displayed] By the way, do you like it in here? It's finished. I'm kidding, I'm kidding, but this is the way his building is going to look. These are all jokes. Anyway, take a look. Seriously, over here fellas. See that space? That's how confident I am about this project, I'm unveiling it at the signing.
Zukaki: [in Japanese] Boy, when this guy shovels it, he uses both hands.

Not That Bad
26 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not a science fiction fan, but I like this movie. I may be biased as a Hulk Hogan fan, but this is my favorite of his films. A lot of it is pretty dumb and borders on the absurd, but the best and funniest scenes are his trying to fit in on Earth, and the odd partnership between him and straight-laced Christopher Lloyd. Accepting Hogan too quickly as the space hero he is, Lloyd gets to play one harried husband with a spaced out wife played by Shelley Duvall. Larry Miller, funny as he is, is annoying as the boss, but Jack Elam is wasted as a shell-shocked neighbor in a neighborhood of wierdos. Roy Dotrice has an unexpected cameo, but the worst part of the movie is the unconvincing villain who comes across as a kiddie show bad guy. Two of Hogan's wrestling cronies play bounty hunters who take part in a cartoonish John-and-Larry fight scene. Altogether, the movie has a lot of faults, but few really good scenes.
