Did You Know?


The scenes in the computer lab were filmed over the period of a few days in a school in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada that taught visual arts. The interior locations were not changed very much from how they looked in real life: the only major changes were the addition of some colorful lights and the windows were blocked out with paper. The main theater where the "supercomputer" was housed was in reality a gigantic green-screen room that the school used for the creation of virtual sets and motion-captured action. The school was paid $5,000 for the use of the facilities in the film. It has since been bought out by a much larger school. The futuristic exterior of the computer lab is actually a government food inspection agency half a block away from the school. See more »

It's not even good at being bad !!!
25 October 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This... it's... this is just... I mean, it's...

Talk about loss for words ! Like many movie fans I suppose, I usually love bad movies, the worse, the better - they can make for great entertainment. But this merciless waste of screen space is not even good at being a bad movie. If you 're into bad movies as alternative entertainment, well - forget about this one. No, really. No, honestly, really. It's so bad-bad it's not even funny.

If you 're reading this because this movie just came on and you 're quickly checking IMDb to see what it's about, and you 're still thinking about actually watching it, please think again : are you sure your socks are all properly matched ? Perhaps now would be a good time to check, and re-match them if necessary. Actually... re-match them anyway.

I 'm struggling to find *something* good about this one. Let's see... OK, the girl ("Elaine"), and the end credits. No, wait - they sucked too. Just the girl then.

Now, where's that "Aaaah! My eyes, my eyes!" vote in IMDb's vote drop-down list...
