New York, 1980: airplanes have replaced cars, numbers have replaced names, pills have replaced food, government-arranged marriages have replaced love, and test tube babies have replaced ... well, you get the idea. Scientists revive a man struck by lightning in 1930; he is rechristened "Single O". He is befriended by J-21, who can't marry the girl of his dreams because he isn't "distinguished" enough -- until he is chosen for a 4-month expedition to Mars by a renegade scientist. The Mars J-21, his friend, and stowaway Single O visit is full of scantily clad women doing Busby Berkeley-style dance numbers and worshiping a fat middle-aged man.Written by

The spaceship became Dr. Zarkov's rocket in Flash Gordon (1936). Footage of the dance number featuring the idol was used in the serial as entertainment for Ming the Merciless (Charles Middleton). See more »

It has a pretty bad reputation, but Just Imagine is such a unique film that it's essential viewing for those who can overlook the bad songs and the unfunny antics of El Brendel. The art direction is, of course, inspired, the dance sequences wonderful (especially on Mars), and the joke about Henry Ford is truly hilarious. Despite it's creakiness, there's no more lovable film than Just Imagine.
