Peter O'Toole's madcap performance is a wonder to behold.

O'Toole makes it passable, but he's better than this and so is the audience.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Weird (yet watchable) mid-80's sci-fi rom-com whatchamacallit.

Audience Reviews for Creator

I do not know why I loved this movie, maybe because of the undying love and what this man wanted to do to get the love of his wife back.

Always loved this movie and the Professors undying love for the love of his life.

Linda Duganne

The best Sci-Fi, Romantic Comedy that I've seen yet. Plus there are 2 sets of tits including Mariel Hemmingway's tits before she ruined them by enlarging them (I don't care if they are big or small as long as they are ALL yours).

Allen Beasley
