Critic Reviews for 2001: A Space Travesty
Audience Reviews for 2001: A Space Travesty
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.
A parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey in name only, this movie about a Bill Clinton clone is truly a travesty. But, maybe, if you have a juvenile sense of humor, then just maybe, you might get a laugh or two out of this movie.
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.
