Quotes

King Raff: [Voiceover] At the very edge of the galaxy is our world. The tiny planet known, as Spengo. For many decades, I was the king of this planet. The people were happy and their lives were good... But also, alas, we were a planet of idiots. Then, one day, the most bloodthirsty, fearsome villain had ever seen seized power, imprisoned me, and renamed the planet after himself. His name - Todd Spengo.
[Todd Spengo is walking and runs into a low pipe]
King Raff: Well alright, so he's not exactly fearsome - but he ...

An unforgettable crack-head adventure!
21 March 2001 | by Raven WavesSee all my reviews

This movie is so unlikely, incredibly unrealistic, and completely pointless to watch if you're the 'serious,' type. I LOVE this movie! It's great for kids to watch, because it has a bit of everything: Costumes, humor, special effects, and of course, parents that save the world! Yes, this is a kind of movie that 'crack-heads,' will enjoy to watch. When I say, 'crack-heads,' I mean jumpy, hyper, childish, and imaginative people like myself. I highly recommend this film, if you happen to be any of the above! :)
