So you thought "Team America" and "Thunderbirds" were crap? Then just wait until you see the marginal and totally retarded puppet-farce called "Disaster!". It's the ultimate reason for Muppet Show creator Jim Henson to turn in his grave. I guess I must have seen a different movie than the other two reviewers on this site, as I certainly did NOT see a funny Sci-Fi parody with wit dialogs and hilarious effects, but a hugely irritating and infantile 80 minutes homage to fart-jokes. Released in my country as "Apollo 13 1/3", the plot (haha!) is identical to "Armageddon", with an asteroid threatening to wipe out mankind upon its collision with earth. All the recognizable sequences from that film, as well as several other ones, are ridiculed in a very un-funny and clichéd manner. The male puppets all are perverted and trigger-happy idiots and the females are dumb sluts with giant plastic breasts. You may anticipate crude humor about handicapped people and racist remarks towards pretty much every ethnic group living on this planet. In good old South Park tradition, the film is very gore and multiple puppets have their heads blown off or their entrails ripped out. But the humor in Trey Parker's films is actually really tasteful & original compared to the pathetic imagination of director/creator Roy T. Wood. This type of crap isn't even funny when you're drunk or stoned and I truly regret wasting the money of a rental on it.
