I originally saw this movie in the theater, and I LOVED it! I had often fantasized about the end of the world where only myself a few others had survived.
Well, I'm 16 years older now, and not quite as misanthropic, but I still got a kick out of watching this again the other night. Sure, the soundtrack was atrocious, and some of the acting was sub-par, but the sheer aplomb that "Samantha" has carries the film, I thought.
Plus, it was fun to see Robert Beltran (ST: Voyager's second in command), so much younger!
Quite a few laughs, and a pretty good plot twist or two to keep you guessing makes this an easy movie to enjoy.
My rating: 7
