Storyline

Leslie Nielsen once again plays a bumbling detective in the vein of the 'Naked Gun' movies, but this time as Marshall Richard 'Dick' Dix. When odd reports are received through official channels stating that the President of the United States is being held captive on a secret international moon base called Vegan and that he has been replaced on Earth by a clone, the US Marshall Service immediately sends their 'best' man, Dix, on the mission. Dix travels to Vegan to rescue the president, but is quickly duped and ends up returning to Earth where he installs the clone-president and removes the real one. The bumbling Dix must then find a way to restore the real president before aliens take over the Earth, and restore in himself a belief in truth, justice and the American way.

Completely terrible. I feel sorry for Leslie Nielsen.
4 March 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Watching this on television the other day, I instantly felt great remorse for star Leslie Nielsen. After the success of the "Naked Gun" series, he has been restricted to a career of playing the same character over...and over...and over....

This time, he is US Marshall "Dick" Dix (the first of many human anatomy puns/so-called "jokes"). I wonder how long it took them to come up with that one in the writing room.

"How about Agent Butt K. Isser?" "How about Agent T. Itz?" "No, wait guys! I've got it! Dick Dix! Haha we're comedic geniuses!" The budget is very obviously on the low end. Special effects are terrible. The film tries to lampoon the space travel segments of Kubrick's "2001" and fails miserably. Nielsen sucks food through a straw and can't manage to get it up the straw the whole way. Hahaha I chuckled all night thinking of that one! Or how about the woman in the back of the space shuttle who has huge breasts and manages to accidentally shed out of her clothes, which float around and slap Nielsen in the face? No, it couldn't have been the ugly fat woman whose clothes magically disappear...it's the busty blonde...I love Hollywood.
