down the tubes...
8 February 1999 | by KabumpoSee all my reviews

Flush a guy down the toilet? That's really funny. (Yeah, right!) This film starts out looking serious, despite its title, with nice production design. Idiotically, a jazz musician gets a phone receiver pulled through his face, which is enough to give the overweight but otherwise in good health captain a fatal heart attack (This is supposed to be funny?) The scarred-up guy is hunted down, has sex in the shower with one of the crew, and deals with a transsexually-minded android who likes to put on women's clothing. As wild as that might sound, it is bogged down in tedium, and succeeds neither as a comedy or as science fiction.
