Trivia

Producers intended to use the medley from the cast's nightclub show for the big musical number near the end of the film. The medley included brief passages from many well-known show tunes. Due to Doris Fish's death and the high cost of the rights to even fragments of those songs, the scene had to be post-dubbed, with a different song and alternate singers. See more »

Opening credits indicate the film was "based upon the party by Ginger Quest". See more »

Essence of s-f cheese!
24 December 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Ladies and gentleman, please give an ovation to the most stinky piece of cheese released by Troma! A group of agents is ordered to check what's happening in "Vegas In Space". Because men are not allowed to enter there, they change their sex through pills. After they arrived they are introduced to the emmperrores, who tells them that all the problems are caused by theft of royal diamonds... And here normal plot ends. Rest of the film is set of scenes somehow connected with the problem of a stolen jewelery. Sometimes it's very difficult to find out what and why something is happening.

Whole movie is a mix of typical for 60's s-f and transsexual&narcotic kitsch of the 80's. Paper spaceships, buildings made of saltshakers and hordes of women, who's look remind me of Boy George or other transvestite singer. I wonder how much money did they spend on a makeup. A lot of sudden zooms with coils in a background, extremely colorful clothes, characters and places intensifies this amount of kitsch. But the best is moment after 50th minute. Pure, narcotic surrealism with music similar to the Gary Numan's. Also we can see a robot version of gore (really funny), fighting with a Martian for parking place and party with freaky dancing moves (as for 60's). I have to admit (but it'll be blasphemy) sometimes this movie beats all Ed Wood's movies! "Vegas In Space" is essence of kitsch in the s-f movies. Director should get Oscar for a perfect connecting 60's and 80's climate. MUST SEE!
