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.

Quotes

King Raff: [Voiceover] At the very edge of the galaxy is our world. The tiny planet known, as Spengo. For many decades, I was the king of this planet. The people were happy and their lives were good... But also, alas, we were a planet of idiots.

King Raff: Well alright, so he's not exactly fearsome - but he ...

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.
