There are two German VHS-Versions. One is the uncut version and is labeled FSK18 and one is a slightly cut version which is rated FSK12. In the cut version the bar fight for example is slightly cut. But the most paradox fact is that the uncut version is often shown in free TV, even in the midday and afternoon time-slots where only FSK12 movies are allowed. See more »
Light-hearted comedy - not meant to be a classic!!
I saw this in college with the rest of the UMass-Boston SF Society gang, and no, this is no classic, nor was meant to be.
Like "Hudson Hawk," a light-hearted comedy unjustly slagged because moviegoers who'd never seen Moonlighting couldn't hack Bruce Willis not wading through bullet storms (and because judging from the MSTK-driven bottom 50 on IMDb, pack mentality rules), "Ice Pirates" bombed because most SF fans of the generation couldn't stand their genre mixed with humor; witness the prompt implosion just a couple years before of the very witty TV show "Quark" after only a handful of eps.
Maybe "Galaxy Quest" -- which spoofed the syndrome -- and "3rd Rock" changed the paradigm, but twenty years ago, SF fandom still expected to see Shatneresque painfully earnest pomposity in their futuristic dramas. Urich didn't deliver; his bad. Ice Pirates would no doubt do better now.
