I always thought that Mel Brooks was the greatest master of intentional and calculated comedy, but boy was I wrong. I happened to catch this simply awful film on Comet, and I started laughing almost right away. From the silly elongated disco wig on the main villain to absurd sliding sheet metal doors on the "airlock", this film is one of the most unintentionally silly and funny films ever. Maybe this film once aspired to be a MAD MAX ripoff, but instead achieved a level of hilarity not seen since the days of Ed Wood and PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE...

If you're looking for a good SciFi film this is certainly not it....But, if you want laughter, this film is one of the most funny films ever produced!
