After his successful nightclub is blown to flaming bits, Pluto and his band travel across the moon looking for clues to the arsonist. Pluto, Bruno, and Dina search a seedy motel, Pluto's secret hideout, and the casino of the most powerful man on the moon for the evildoer, only to discover that his club's destruction might have been his own fault.Written by
Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry were the first and second choices for the role of Dina Lake, but both passed; Berry declined because the filming schedule clashed with her wedding. See more »
While Pluto is in his hidden moon-warehouse/lair checking his computer to find the crook, he is given a sandwich. From behind we see he takes a big bite from the middle of the sandwich. When we cut to face Pluto, the bite has moved to the edge and the middle is bite-free. See more »
That's a cryogenic Chihuahua!
It's a real dog?
Oh, yeah, it's very delicate. You know it's illegal to bring pets up here. But I got a friend back in Juarez who knows how to freeze-dry these things. Look at that. It's a girl. Pop that little bitch in the particle wave for two minutes on defrost... she'll be running around the room.

Old Fashioned Sci-Fi
This was a really cool movie considering no one makes cool sci-fi movies much. It had a pretty good story, like a remake of a 1950's nightclub noir film. It really had an early R. Heinlein or Phillip K. Dick feel to it, sort of. The effects were neat if not ground breaking and Eddie Murphy did a credible job. Randy Quaid was funny and annoying at the same time. Also had a really funny cameo of Pam Greir as Eddie's mom. A nice, solid movie. Not perfect by any means with lots of science mistakes but then Hollywood does that a lot anyway. This movie reminds me of Total Recall if I had to put a name on it.
The humor was much more sophisticated than I expected and there were no Uranus jokes, contrary to other reviews. If you are going to lie, try a little harder.
