Good Sci-fi Comedy
15 September 2000 | by mhawfield-2See all my reviews

I am going with the majority view on this title. I went in having no real idea what to expect from this film and enjoyed the film immensely. The comedy is silly and off the wall. A very good comedy for those that liked Kids in the Hall. Worth a look!
