Miles, a nebbishy clarinet player who also runs a health food store in NYC's Greenwich Village, is cryogenically frozen, and brought back - 200 years in the future, by anti-government radicals in order to assist them in their attempt to overthrow the oppressive government. When he goes off on his own, he begins to explore this brave new world, which has Orgasmatron booths to replace sex and confessional robots.Written by

Woody Allen and rock star Alice Cooper happened to meet while staying in the same hotel while Allen was filming and Cooper was on tour. Allen invited him to the set to watch the filming, but Cooper did not appear in the film. See more »
In the final chase scene, the all-white futuristic vehicle is replaced briefly by another all-white futuristic vehicle of a different design, including a black trim. See more »
The film is pure magic, its my favourite comedy and I think it is in my top three Allen films of all time.
See it if you like the Marx brothers, Woody is all of them rolled into one in this film, it's utter genius. Woody also plays the jazz music which scores the film, and you know you're in for a treat when hearing the first few bars makes you smile. There aren't many comedies out there which could top this in terms of low budget, gags-per-second ratio, music, and sheer quality.
If a film could save your life (as in Hannah and her sisters), it's this one.
