Screenwriters Floyd Byars and Laurie Frank's flapjack-flat characters meander through a slack plot that aims to address love between life-forms.

Just like any other saturated formula, its joke wears thin after the first hour or so.

The film's fake feminist message is at its most cyncial: Real men are repulsive but androids (created by women) are sweet, sensitive, and open-minded.

A one-joke comedy that's buoyed by a handful of great performances.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

One of the more enjoyable of the indie comedies of the 80s, as much a product of its time as Woodstock was of its own.

Adds up to somewhat less than the sum of its parts, but the parts are often delightful, particularly when Ms. Seidelman keeps them moving at a sufficiently furious pace.
