Trivia

In an interview with Kevin Smith, Stan Lee said that, unknown to its cast and crew, this movie was never intended to be released, and it was made only because the studio that owned the rights to make a "Fantastic Four" movie would have lost those rights if it did not begin production by a certain date.

Watch it if you wanna laugh

Yeah, it's pretty hilarious. If you can get your hands on a copy of this flop (and believe me, it'll probably be a bootleg), get together some friends and a bowl of popcorn and spend time chuckling at every other lame quirk and cheap line that occurs as the minutes pass. The acting is lower than soap-opera performance level, the effects, sets and props all look generic and along the quality lines of a 70's television series and the storyline/dialogue is so childish and bubbly that you'll just be rolling your eyes with each new scene's introduction. I'm not even sure if loyal fans of the comic would be too accepting to this mess, even if they did get a chance to see it. But hey, it's still entertaining...
