Goofs

An object in motion will stay in motion until acted upon by another force or object. Pay close attention to the mustard bottle. It is delightfully spinning in a gravity free environment, after the vehicle is stopped, the free floating bottle is in the same space, it should have shot forward until it hit the windscreen. If you pay close attention they place other obvious errors for the viewer to discover. My query, are they intentional or accidental? Regardless they add to the silliness of the film.Makes for fun watching. See more »

Amusing.
19 July 1999 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

I have to respect movies which promise something and deliver exactly that. When I rented this (I was bored tonight) I had absolutely no expectations for some great piece of art, another Star Wars or Aliens. It was, however, a very cute and often amusing piece of sci-fi satire. (probably my favorite bit was how the truck's voice was a redneck woman, instead of the usual authoritative british guy) If you try to take it seriously, of course you'll hate it. But if you rent it because you want to see a beer & popcorn B-movie, then it's a REALLY good B-movie. I may have lost 90 minutes of my life and gained no new insights on the meaning of the universe, but I did have a good time.
