A total failure of a comedy, even Nielsen could'nt save it. One of the worst things I saw on a theater. At home I have seen much worse, but at least on the TV was free...
Absolutely horrible to watch and I feel sorry for Leslie Nielsen having had to go through this. Very tired, sexist, racist ,and just disrespectful in almost every way you can imagine.
A Blackadder quote sums up the film perfectly: "It started badly, it tailed off a little in the middle and the less said about the end the better, but apart from that it was excellent."
Simply put, The Naked Gun 4: A Space Travesty. It's certainly what this movie feels like, with humor that's just classic Leslie Nielsen who's undoubtably one of the many highlights of this zany space satire.
Could and should have been much better.
After the success of Airplane and The Naked Gun Leslie Nielsen was set to play in several films attempting to copy that stile of humor. This is probably the worst of all of them. Leslie is a US Marshall who is tricked into replacing the president Clinton with a clone, then must work to fix his mistake. The plot involved traveling to a secret moon base as well as to France. Only view if you are a Leslie Nielsen completist.
Yet another dud, this later day spoof has all the familiar ingredients:: poor slapstick, lazy wordplay with no wit at all, and references dumped all over, regardless of relevance. Furthermore, despite the title, the plot has little to do with 2001, instead, the plot is a retread of part Naked Gun, part cheap B Movie (though, in the only positive point, the prosthetics on the creatures are fairly good):
How did this abomination ever came to fruition? Everything from the ground level up is rotten... Leslie Nielson shouldn't be associated with this.
Definitely in TOP 5 of the worst movies I have ever, ever seen.
When the President of the United States (Damien Masson) is kidnapped by aliens and replaced with a clone, the police call on Marshal 'Dick' Dix (Leslie Nielsen) of the International Security Force.
With the fate of the world in his hands, Dix sets off on a star trek with sexy Officer Menage (Ophelie Winter) by his side and no clue how he is going to rescue the President, save the Earth from the scum of the universe and stop an attack of the clones before the galaxy erupts in an all out star wars!!!
also stars Alexandra Kamp-Groenveld, Verona Feldbusch, Peter Egan, Natalie Gray, Charles Dennis and Jeffrey Wiseman.
