Did You Know?


Jon Lovitz was forced to quit Saturday Night Live (1975) to work on this film. Originally the film was to be shot during the summer break between seasons, but when shooting overlapped for two weeks, Lorne Michaels told Lovitz he couldn't miss a single week on SNL, so he had to make a choice.

When Dick and Marge are out of control on the highway, the man driving the car in far shots is very obviously not Jeffrey Jones. See more »


Emperor Todd Spengo: [after finding out that Afir is planning to dethrone him] So, what do you think of me now, Afir?
General Afir: I think you're a small, pathetic, insignificant, little criten.
Emperor Todd Spengo: Oh, really. Well, what do you think of me now?
[stabs Afir with the needle with fake love potion, and which he then injects into to]
General Afir: [Acting lovey-dovey] Uh, Todd. I love you, marry me?
Emperor Todd Spengo: Nope, sorry. Marrying Marge.

Wonderfully stupid, more than a little Python influence
11 June 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a great, fun movie if you enjoy Monty Python and other movies that blatantly defy logic. The statue delivery, the grenade and several other scenes would be at home in a Monty Python episode.

The cast is well chosen. The costumes are ridiculous. When you think that a scene cannot get more stupid, you will be wrong.

The language is clean. The adult humor will mostly be missed by kids. This can be a fun movie if you are looking for a relaxed, unstructured fun time.

If you need a serious plot, real science in your science fiction, or highly structured entertainment, look elsewhere.
