Also, three brief scenes filmed for the movie but not included in the final cut are shown. The credits end with Vince Latello's smiling mugshot from the film. See more »
Starring the late great Dennis Hopper and underrated talent Fisher Stevens this is an odd little 80's sci-fi comedy that I'd never heard of. I can only assume this is because it didn't do all too well.
It tells the story of a car nut who finds a mysterious device while searching for something to use for his science project. The device distorts time and space building to an epic climax featuring dinosaurs, laser firing space men and everything in between.
On paper this should have been outstanding but for whatever reason it fell flat.
The sci-fi side looks pretty terrible and does not even remotely meet its potential while the comedy element is so lacking it's hard to believe they even call it that. In fact the only comedy comes from Fisher Stevens who is one of the movies saving graces.
Those into 80's cheese might appreciate this but don't go expecting Weird Science (1985) because it isn't even close.
Doesn't flow very well
