Heavenly Jesus, what a dastardly disorganized mess. Accented with some of the most ridiculous concepts to be witnessed in this life (Korman as an 'instructional' robot?,) this trainwreck is truly quite a blistering experience. Although the entire thing is nearly saturated in a coating of so-bad-it's-good goodness, I must warn you that some of these scenes are downright horrific. Diahann Carroll's scene makes Plan 9 look like Citizen Kane, dear lord. I was introduced to this flick (as I am a lot of stuff, actually) by the Nostalgia Critic, and what Doug declined to mention was that Carroll's scene also involves a song. ...and, simply, holy crap. Scenes like these are where the inherent entertainment value of the more absurd things are truly put to the test, the movie itself becoming more of an animalistic quest for survival rather than a willingly allowed experience. I'm hardly the kind of human being to walk out of a flick in the middle, but I would not blame anyone at all for giving up once, twice, thrice, or several more times when Carroll's scene comes around. I mean, honestly, it has to be one of the most blatantly unwatchable scenes in the history of American cinema.
I don't really know how to end this review (I actually made it in response to an individual who posted a trollish comment and then tried to make some sort of statement about the validation of my opinion), but I guess that I'll say that obviously, if you're into Plan 9 - style so-bad-it's-good type stuff, then this thing is right up your alley. But be forewarned, many of these scenes are just so mind-rapingly and relentlessly bad that they find themselves deriving you of the pleasure associated with the more absurdly enjoyable experiences offered.
As a legitimate piece of cinema: 1/10.
