Storyline

When odd reports are received through official channels stating that the President of the United States is being held captive on a secret international moon base called Vegan and that he has been replaced on Earth by a clone, the US Marshal Service immediately sends their 'best' man, Marshal Richard 'Dick' Dix, on the mission. Dix travels to Vegan to rescue the president, but is quickly duped and ends up returning to Earth where he installs the clone-president and removes the real one. The bumbling Dix must then find a way to restore the real president before aliens take over the Earth, and restore in himself a belief in truth, justice and the American way.

Quotes

Richard 'Dick' Dix: [narration] Now I know what it was like to be a Roman candle on the fourth of July, that this hero stuff was not for me. I was ready to get back on the beat, hear the wail of sirens and play with my handcuffs and my gun. Yes, I was ready to plant my flag back in Washington D.C., where every Congressman has the Constitutional right to be a felon. Good old America.

Only funny to Aliens!
13 September 2002 | by apailateSee all my reviews

Leslie Nielsen is one of the most funniest comedians in Hollywood. He should've retired from acting with honour, before starring in this horrible unfunny film!

The jokes were childish, and I squirmed in my seat every time a joke was delivered. It's very sad Leslie has succumbed to this kind of silly nonsense, it was an embarrassment to watch.

I hope Mr Nielsen will go back to his hilarious roots and make more funny movies like the 'Naked Gun' trilogy, and 'Spy Hard'.
