Storyline

Emperor Tod Spengo sees Marge Nelson and using a giant magnet, kidnaps her and her husband Dick, hoping to make her his bride before blowing up the Earth. He and other inhabitants of his planet are somewhat less than bright, and Dick begins reliving episodes of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers in order to rescue Marge, save the Earth, and restore the rightful king to the throne.

Trivia

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.

Then, one day, the most bloodthirsty, fearsome villain had ever seen seized power, imprisoned me, and renamed the planet after himself. His name - Todd Spengo.

Under-rated film...
20 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

...but you have to be in the right mindset. If comedies like Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin, or yes, even Leonard part 6 are your style of comedy, this movie is for you! This comedy is dumb, but intentionally so. As a test, do you think an Emperor named "Todd" is funny? If so, see this movie! If not, maybe you should move on to a smarter comedy.
