Audience Reviews for 2001: A Space Travesty


The Naked Gun movies continue (sorta) in space! But unfortunately Leslie Nielsen has a different character name who acts the same. No worse than the Austin Powers 2 space station scenes. Nice tribute to "2001: A Space Odyssey", but it didn't last! Sadly, less than half of the movie is in space; the title and promos are misleading. They should've parodied every Sci-Fi movie possible, with Leslie it would've been great. But they went cheap with an underdeveloped plot about cloning the US President on Earth. The CGI special effects added to the comic situations. The sets were high budget, especially the Paris Opera House. The musical performances were the highlight of this movie: the three Tenors singing "In the Navy", Ophelie Winter's sexy "Get Down Tonight", and Bill Clinton's Saxophone showdown. I know this movie is on IMDB's bottom 100 list, but I've seen much crappier films. The infantile comedy gave me a few chuckles.

I thought this was a funny film and hey it's Leslie Nielsen! Another funny role for him. Also this movie does have a lot of sexual humor, but still hilarious to watch. This film is definetly funny! 10 out of 10.
