Hoping for some fun, but was just confused
4 December 2016 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

I love love love the campiness of Vegas in Space, so I was hoping for something along those lines. And I ignored the (2) user reviews that said how horrible this movie was and wasted an hour and 23 minutes of my time. Was this a student film? Because that would be the only way I could make sense of this mess. It seemed it was trying to be a few things - campy, serious sci-fi, educational - and only maybe succeeded at being mildly educational about transvestism. But anyone interested in this movie wouldn't need the education. It is just a horrible mess of a movie and I caution people to not waste their time on it. It is NOT campy or funny or even entertaining. It's just sad.
